Harold Dieterle questions Spike's choices.

I don't think it's a bad thing that Dale keeps making Asian dishes, but at a certain point, you have to show some diversity. You can only cook X, Y, and Z food for so long, especially with the talent pool being the way it is, but eventually you have to show off what you can do. Everybody has a style, and everyone on the show is not yet a chef, so they're still developing their style. You get put into a situation where you're nervous or not feeling that comfortable, you're going to go back to your comfort zone. And for him, it's Asian food. So, if he's winning, who cares? He's making it well, so it doesn't matter. At this point, everyone's looking for an angle to get ahead, so...

I still like Richard. I still like Stephanie a lot. I think Lisa is very talented. I think Dale is talented. I think, at this point, everyone's really strong. And next week looks like a war zone. You can't not have Restaurant Wars. I'm more interested in watching Rstaurant Wars than in watching the finale, to be honest. I think it puts a lot of things into perspective about opening a restaurant.
