Frankly, last night was one of the most disappointing nights in the history of American television. First I watched Hosea, the least qualified cheftestant finalist win “Top Chef” in a massive and miserable upset over Hootie Hoo Carla. Then, I watched Matt Giraud bite it despite incredible promise and talent.
Anyway, if you were watching “Top Chef” last night, you probably found yourself screaming multiple times: “No Carla! Don’t do it!” Seriously, who sous-vides tenderloin? File that under worst idea EVER. Who, when they make one of the best crusts in show history, swaps an automatically delicious tart for a difficult-to-serve-to-a-crowd blue cheese souffle? I’ll give you a hint: Hootie.
As I said last night, Casey has probably turned into the biggest reality show villain for a season she was even on after her terrible suggestions and ruining of Hootie Hoo’s dream. Turns out, Casey’s already felt the wrath of Hootie fans and issued a pretty hostile response:
Carla was not prepared and in over her head. The show did not talk about how the first course (crab) took her half of the friggin’ cooking time that day, I was left to work the rest of HER dishes.
She also did not have a plan. The ONLY thing she had in mind was a cheese course! I would NEVER do a cheese course. And where in the hell did french come from!? She is not even classically trained! It (the show) didn’t talk about how I worked on a sauce for 2 days and Carla forgot to put it on the plate… It didn’t show how the 2nd course (fish) was MINE. It didn’t show how she took the sous vide idea and decided to GRILL it last minute causing it to be tough… And it didn’t show how she WANTED to do the souffles which she does not even know how to make! That was HER food, because it certainly was me asking her how she wanted to do this and that while she was busy picking crab the entire time and making a souffle that didn’t rise!
I am done with TC. I did not influence her. She has NO ideas of her own, oh, except a cheese course.
What do you think kiddos? Is Hootie’s downfall her own or the does the blame lie with Casey the fake baker?
