Okay, real quick, for this week of Fantasy Top Chef, we have retroactively changed the score. There are now points for winning a Quickfire and the Elimination challenge. Which means the scores now look like this:
This of course does not make me happy at all. I want to WIN. WIN!
Okay, so I need to watch this week’s episode. Right now I know I have a point for Michael V’s Quickfire win. But I expected to be the clear blogger to beat by this point. 🙂
More after the ep.
Okay, ep is over. Now for the scores:
Okay, so I’m tied for first place. So that’s good.
Part of my strategy in this game has already backfired on me. I tried as hard as I could to trade with Karen for Jen C. My last offer was Robin, 2 guest posts, a feature on BlogWellDone and a Teflon ®-coated pan. No dice. I figure Brain V and Jen C would make me unbeatable. (Plus I have Jen C in my other Fantasy Top Chef game and then I don’t have to figure out who to cheer for.)
As for the show, this season has been been intense so far. I can definitely tell there are some great chefs. On the other hand, there are some really not good chefs. I won’t give any spoilers here, but the chef who went home…not a surprise. Still, the chef who won the Quickfire (one of mine!) also no surprise.
As it stands now, there are five chefs I can see going all the way: both Voltaggio brothers, Jen C, Kevin, and (strangely enough) Eli. All of them appear to have what it takes.
Similarly, I think it’s pretty clear who is going home next time. I am thinking it’s going to be Jessie. I could be wrong. I kind of hope I am. We’ll see next week.
