Brian Malarkey gives his blunt take on the cheftestants' weekly standings.

on Apr 4, 2008

"Naysay to the horse play." Malarkey speaks BLUNT!

This week's ranking appears first, followed by last week's ranking.

1/1 Stephanie: "Colicchio's Angel" - packing Lisa two weeks in a row. No Top Secret here, the judges are loving you!

2/2 Richard: "Willy Wonka Wonderland" - Dale knows who has the skills. Wasabi-chocolate blew it up -- now blow out the smoker for good.

3/3 Mark: "Dude Where's My Groceries" - Bad Boy Bubby? Did you break Richard's smoker? No Turkey, no duck, no problem .... You gave the judges quail and carrots for Christmas and they loved it.

4/4 Dale: "Up in Smoke" - Awesome knife skills and great presentation in the Quickfire, but you sat back and enjoyed the show in the Elimination Challenge.

5/5 Andrew: "Oompa Loompa" - Calling out Dale as "the weak choose the strong," he just beat you down in the Quickfire. Letting us know that the guest and judges would "culinary crap their pants." I'm not thinking that's a good thing.

6/8 Antonia: "Passionless Passion" - Why ever would you make a saffron dish that tasted like saffron? Step it up and be bold! I can tell you are figuring out the judges and it's just going to be a matter of time before you put it all together.
