Mary Sue wins, George goes home, but we all win with quirky judges.

May 4, 2011

Anyway, I think the real winners this week were the judges, or rather the viewers for some seriously awesome judge moments. First of all, the -- I guess you could call it -- flirting between Danyelle and Curtis was amusing, but it all really hit a high point for me when Danyelle said, "They're like healthy hush puppies," referring to Mary Sue's quinoa fritters. Curtis retorts, "You're a healthy hush puppy." Um, what?! Don't know what it means, but it was amusing. I usually come back from a comment with "You're a..." when I don't know what else to say. Either way, I'd love to be called a healthy hush puppy by Curtis Stone. And James Oseland was just in top form this week. Not only were his comments about "little mouthfuls" as delightful as ever, but his face when he honked the car horn was just plain riveting. Seriously, we rewound that moment, like, four times in the office, and if you DVR'd the episode, I suggest you do the same. His comment about being late to a San Antonio destination because of the slow drive-through cracked me up too. I like the back and forth between James and Alan. But tell me: What were your favorite little moments? And did you agree with the judges' decision?

Next week, Maroon 5 visits, and, well, I'm a big fan. until then, Have a Nosh!
