Patricia Yeo was a little mean, huh?

on Sep 5, 20120

Welcome back my little prize fighters. This recap is brought to you by the word "yuzu." What an episode, huh? I know I’ve probably written this in every recap I’ve written so far this season, but I think every episode is better than the last. This week’s episode started with a mise en place relay race -– my favorite of all the Quickfire Challenges. This time around the chefs had to crack eggs, shave cheese, and filet beef into perfect pieces weighing between 7.5 and 8.5 ounces. Lorena is particularly worried about this challenge, and I gotta say, I’m kinda worried for her. Chris, a possible frontrunner (at least in his mind), makes his filets too small and is immediately given the boot. As is Patricia. Takashi, the cutest man to ever grace this Earth, moves on. As does Kerry, leaving Lorena behind, but not disqualified. Kerry and Takashi move on to cook against each other with those mise en place ingredients. I watched this Quickfire Challenge hungry, which is always a mistake, and I have to say I wanted to dive into Takashi’s dish. I’m a sucker for a grilled vegetable, but Kerry was victorious! He dethroned the Immunity King! Kudos, Kerry.

With his win, he sat out the Elimination Challenge which was…

To compete in a head-to-head challenge. And not any head-to-head challenge but one in a boxing ring, judged by none other than Sugar Ray Leonard. I know I just said how cute Takashi is, but I have to mention how handsome Sugary Ray Leonard is.

LET'S GET READY TO SAUTEEEEE!

I found the head-to-head competition on this week's episode quite entertaining.  I hope something similar will be featured in future seasons of TC and TCM.  Good going.

I hope someone tells Patricia that she is coming off as a nasty jealous little girl.  Her behavior is embarrassing.  Why doesn't she let the other contestants speak for themselves.  I hate when she says "The others are very surprised that Loreana won" or how she says the guys are just amazed by how fast she is.   It's obvious she has an overinflated opinion of her own talents, but its pathetic she has to try and tell the tv audience what the she believes the other chefs think of her.  I personally think her lame little salad was embarrassing.  I hate it when chefs think that their touch is so magical that a salad is just divine coming from their special hands.  I think Patricia is just jealous that Loreana is more famous and more feminine.

Patricia is acting like a child, and it's time she went home...she's not nearly as good as she thinks she is!  She looks down on Lorena and it's obvious...frankly, I think Lorena is a sweet spark of energy! and an awesome cook!  I couldn't have been happier she beat Patricia, too cocky by far.

Where was the sexy Francis Lam last night? I hope he'll be back.

I personally think Patricia just hasn't gotten over the week that she told Lorena to clean up her mess and Lorena went off on her. I think Lorena is as much to blame as Patricia.  Just my opinion.
