I haven’t brought myself to watch this week’s Top Chef yet. I’ve heard so much feedback. Here are just a couple of comments from Facebook friends.
B.L. - If Carla wins Top Chef I'm sending a strongly worded email to the producers. I screamed and almost flipped a table when I thought Richard was going home. Phew.
C.T. – I think it’s stupid that they kept all of them. You can’t send five people to the finale.
I also checked out another blogger’s post and have included the ending of his blog and the URL.

What a tough judges' table. There are little things, I guess, but how do you send one of these competitors home? Padma calls in everybody. Despite no one having a single criticism for Blais's near-perfect dish, Antonia wins. Man, why won't anyone let Blais be great and win a Toyota? The judges tell Mike he is safe as well.
The tension is palpable. Blais is sweating. Padma tells him: "Richard, please pack your knives... because you are going to the Bahamas." Padma, that is garbage! Don't you dare. Don't you dare do that again.
And Tiffany and Carla? They're going to the Bahamas too. Everybody's going. Yay! What? I mean, this is nice, I guess. But also, no. Please, just get rid of people. Let's wrap this up. Everybody worked so hard on this challenge, to not beat anybody seems a real disappointment. I hate change, Top Chef. Don't change the rules on me. If anything, eliminate two people. Eliminate everybody! Let us just vote for the winner online. You can't screw with my emotions like that again. This was my favorite episode of the season, with the worst ending.
Basically, the judges couldn’t decide who to eliminate, so everyone is going to the finals. Perhaps once I’ve mustered the courage and patience to watch the episode, I’ll have some more insight. On the bright side, my predictions really couldn’t be wrong this week, technically, since no one went home.
