Hola! This week we're in Barcelona, Spain -- a place I've never gone, but have always wanted to. I'm actually writing this from our first host city, London, England right now, so if it's a bit shorter than usual, it's because I'm exhausted!
So, let's get into it. We start with the chefs in cars. Sharing. Keven explains some 'Crying Game' incident he had once that I'd rather forget ever hearing. Thankfully, there's a challenge at hand and the chefs face their first Course: to find the clock tower. This week the chefs are in two teams: the men vs. the women (and Nookie.) Nookie reveals that he used to live in Barelona, which seems like a pretty good advantage. "It's almost like i'm the exceptional ingredient, Nookie says. That may be true, but I worry it could turn out to be a detriment. (Spoiler alert: I'm wrong.) At the start, the men find themselves in the lead, John Vermiglio makes an interesting comment about wishing there were females on his team -- for their level heads. I just found this so refreshing. John is becoming one of my favorites to watch.
From a viewer's perspective, I'm not sure I could have handled another week of Cheven. It'll be interesting now to see whether Chaz settles down to become a team player or not.
I'm still confusing John and Nick but (at least) one of them has become my favorite objective commenter.
Didn't know whether this premise would work but you know... it does.
