  • Nice to see real challenges :)

    I will admit that it was michael's turn to go home but again crassia should have been right next to him if not before him. Her room was lame and boring! And that back couch was horrid. Michael's room was not much better I did like that he thought out of the box for a change and at least Tom didn't hate it as much as some of the other things he mentioned.

    Goil's room was intersting and could have worked if he had just played more with it. And I really like the light and thought it was a cool idea. What can I say :)

    Andrea's room did rock but it was not orginal, it was just fancy redone if you ask me. But at least she did what the challenge was and I know that impresses Tom, that is what he looks for in Top Chef. Matt's room was good, not over the top but did need something. I am not sure what but just maybe a girls touch. LOL! And yah the floor rocked, he got major point from Tom on that.

    It was nice that they had a 'real' challenge again, I like to see what they could do! I am looking forward to next week, finally we can see them work or lack of work.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Margaret: (of Michael) Design is more than shopping, and he's just shopping.

    • Carisa: (of her design) It's probably the least, like, "me" thing I've done. 'Cause it's sort of more natural, and I'm very plastic, and colorful, and artificial.

    • Todd: But keep in mind that, ultimately, it needs to be very high-end and luxurious.
      Goil: I'm a bowl of noodle kind of guy, so… this is very challenging to me.

    • Michael: The mystery judge could be maybe Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, or that Mario Batali, but who knows. Julia Child is dead, so we know it's not her.
