Love is in the Vegas air and it’s a hot gust of dry desert mixed with the faint whimpers of people losing money. But somebody always has to win. In Episode 1 we had a chef picking up charitable loot like Phelps picking up medals. Chris, “That Offal Guy,” Cosentino was the class valedictorian of last week, but geez they were so nice to each other. Mixed with great food we want to see debauchery and cutthroat competition, tears of rage, and tears of freedom! It’s only a matter of time.
Chris is the nicest chef who also happens to be on many many cooking shows. He is next apparating on Time Machine Chef, where he will again have competitively anxious repartee with Art, but this time they will be pounding together rocks to make fire while wearing loin cloths. In the meantime, let’s keep this classy.
No Quickfire today as the chefs meet up with a couple to plan a wedding. The wedding is tomorrow so I hope the booze has been ordered. Later in the show we see Chris talk about cooking the food for his own wedding and I actually did the same thing. 100 people in Charleston in June, 1996. Hot as balls, but great fun. I recommend getting a caterer though. Much less stressful.
There will be wedding bells for Jay and Christine, after much sadness that has hurdled their union. Lacking the ability to love musicals or feel cuddly about depictions of affection on cable TV, I am very prepared to make fun of the nuptials. But just before I blurt out something caustic we hear the saddest set of stories ever about their wedding plans, from the passing of their friend (and his sister) to the strange implosion of their wedding site.
Hugh! You have the FUNNIEST , wittiest , sharpest and most astute observations. If you ever get divorced. I am your gal :-) . ( But really don't go looking to get divorced...it sucks ) .
If not Jeff Daniels as 4Kids4Me commented, definitely Uncle Fester from Addams Family Values, when he's made-over by the black widow, Debbie.
Fascinating dissection of the evening! I would have loved to hear more about Thierry's bloody appetizer!
Art no one cares that you made Lady Gaga's birthday cake and from the look on the couple's face, they weren't impressed nor Lady Gaga fans. I acutally cheered when his cake fell and thought this would send him home. Also, his choice of a pineapple upside down cake was weird. He should have made a standard wedding cake with piped roses and pearls. But, it's all about him and he needs to go.
"His [Clark's] hair reminds me of someone… can’t put my finger on it."
Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber.
I think what you can't quite put your finger on is, with that hair, Clark looks like Rocky Horror, the "monster." If he hasn't donned a pair of gold lame' briefs for Halloween, he should. Your posts are brilliant.
For some reason I didn't realize you'd be blogging this, so I missed last week (I'm about to remedy that) - I'm so glad you're back! Who else would do: "He namedrops both Lady Gaga and Maya Angelou in the same sentence, forging a generational alliance that has never been attempted before." BWAH!
And I'm glad you clued me in to Top Chef Time Machine - I thought you were making a joke, I really did. Now I'm incensed that these guys are play-acting this bickering couple crap to promote their next show.
Looking forward to more - love you!
OMG! The Lady Gaga / Maya Angelou bits and the part about Thierry's eyebrows had me laughing out loud! I can just see you in your meat dress! Rock on, Hugh.
