This week's ranking appears first followed by last week's ranking. A little nicer Malarkey this week .... Love to you all!
1/1 Stephanie - Still on top even after a very poor performance in the Quickfire. Shows her great all-around chef skills by balancing a very edgy team and in the end she get the praise from Tom and company. (Good to have you back, Tom, and I agree the cussing is an awful reflection on our industry)
2/2 Richard - Still shows great leadership skills even while almost sinking his team in the poaching Jacuzzi. No excuses for the scales on the salmon -- you should have removed the skin. I can't imagine it was any good poached. You know how awful it is to be on the bottom, and I'm sure we won't see you back there for a long time.
