I thought it was a pretty boring episode, actually. It just wasn't very exciting. What I can't get over, and what I have issues with, is the aggressive comments toward the judges. Show some respect, man. Show some respect! You're going to piss Tom off? That's a smart move? If you want to be on television, and you want to stand up for your food, that's fine, but be respectful about it. I'd never speak to the judges like that. It's ridiculous.
Spike had a game plan. If his plan is putting half a slice of bread and a slice of tomato, and that's how he wants to utilize his ingredients to make a chicken salad, that's his decision. I think it was weak, but I did like the idea of putting grapes and olives together. I think that was a great Mediterranean idea. I would've enjoyed that. Tom didn't, but I liked that idea. I just don't think much of the secondary ingredients that he picked out to knock everybody else down.
