So, since the premier was a two-night affair, I figured I’d just extend this post since I just watched both episodes.
Here’s the EW recap:
And here’s Gossip & Gab:
For the first episode I just have to agree with everyone else about the slob Wesley. I think he’s the one who took over Blais’ restaurant . . . if that’s right I’m sure Blais was turning away every time the guy was on the air. Just gross. And I was shocked that Garrett was eliminated first. Yeah, he was pretentious, but Gail & Emeril seemed to like his dish.
For the second part–pop up time! Team Persia really had things going. They talked to the Persian chef and really seemed to get the flavors. Plus, they worked so well together. I knew the Vegan team was in trouble. Phillip, the man-bun king (who has his picture on the side of his restaurant?) was overly confident. And Grayson. Poor, pitiful, pathetic Grayson who apparently cannot cook anything that doesn’t include meat. And moped. The entire time. Like the guys at the Persian restaurant were thrilled when they first saw what they would be cooking? Their win & Veg’s loss is proof that attitude goes a long way in these competitions. Another shocking elimination: I really thought it was going to be Grayson. Bit it was Renee.Still, I can’t see Grayson and her tude lasting much longer.
