Team Top Chef's Editor gives her insider take on the episode and answers reader questions.

Apr 30, 2008

And what did you guys think of Nikki's story? I'll probably go to hell for saying this, but if she commented on being raised by a single mom one more time, well, I don't know. It annoyed me, and that makes me a horrible person, and I guess I'm OK with that.

And finally, what about the TMI moment of the night: Richard admitting he wants to "go home and make some babies!" I really just kind of love Richard, and hopefully that will happen for him one day.

I'm not going to comment on Antonia's "Smell ma poo" joke because, well, yuck.

To respond to a couple of comments: I want to thank those for the kind words and the criticism. Shout out to " _heart_TC" who wrote:

>>>I think them both winning was a Top Chef first -- obviously correct me if my senility has gotten the best of me ???? Ok, maybe I'm the one with the senility problem, but in team challenges, the team *always* wins the challenge - in this case, Dale & Richard - but Richard was the only one who ultimately *won* this episode. He was the one awarded the cookware.

Both Dale and Richard actually received the prize money and the cookware in this one, but "Kat" cleared it up:

"About Dale and Richard winning and your request if someone remembers two people winning at once? Didn't CJ and Tre both win during the Bertolli challenge with Rocco last season? They won tickets to Italy, didn't they?"

Correct -- thanks!

So, tell me, what were your favorite (and least favorite) parts of the show tonight? And HOW exciting were the previews for "Wedding Wars?" We haven't seen that challenge since Season 1!

Until next week,
