Gail Simmons explains why Craig's win and immunity says a lot about the fairness of the competition.

Bravotv.com: Any specific dishes you want to discuss?
GS: I loved Katzie’s macaron with the pipette. It was a pretty and creative addition to their table. Amanda was a great team leader, and Chris made a spectacular showpiece. Everyone on their team seemed to play their role and contribute well. Their dessert’s were clearly delineated and they seemed really organized, even if it didn’t appear that way behind the scenes in the kitchen. I know the other team thought that Amanda’s team was behind, but it doesn’t matter to us because, just like when you’re at a restaurant and you don’t care what’s going on in the kitchen as long as your food comes to you well-cooked, tasty, delicious, and beautifully-presented, that is how we feel about our challenges. That’s what care most about -- the end result. How they got there doesn’t really make a difference to us. I don’t care if they were fighting. I don’t care if they weren’t getting along. They did a great job and they should be proud. And the Beverly Hills ladies were happy too.

Bravotv.com: Anything else you’d like to add?

GS: Afterwards in our break between the challenge and Judges’ Table, we had just eaten all this sugar, but we were all still hungry for some real food. So we brought the ‘Wives across the street from our studio, to this awesome German beer and sausage place called Wurstküche, and I took a picture! Here is the picture of Taylor and Kyle digging into their sausages with Hubert! 





We had a lot of fun with them. They were just great sports all around.

I see no talent even close to last year's group.

I think Gomer is being kept around for entertainment purposes. He has not done one good dish.

I love this season so far! Far more challenging than last year. TCJD has stepped it up, I love it!

I do not understand why the judge made a comment about the 'coffee taste' being out of place for gum When pancakes won ! LOL Allot of people drink coffee with 'breakfast pancakes' .

So nice to see you be fair to Craig in regards to his winning immunity and being saved by it (and I admit I wished to have a huge plate of Craig's pancakes to gleefully devour because they looked delicious). I was quite put off by how Johnny rather rubbed Craig's failure in his face. One thing is to tell him he did badly and that he must try much harder next time, because he knows he did badly, but no need to rub his face in on it. If he's going to be like that to someone who was saved by immunity, why offer it in the first place?

I also must admit to being disappointed by Hubert's comment about preferring someone who did a showpiece over someone who did a crumble. I am personally not a fan of showpieces. They may look visually stunning, but not all pastry chefs have that set of skills, and at the end of the day, when I think of desserts, I think of something yummy I wish to eat, not a fancy sculpture of cake, chocolate or sugar. Thus, I hope upcoming episodes focus less on team challenges and showpieces, and more on individual challenges and delicious desserts that will make my mouth water.
