I was a little surprised at Casey. She goes out there and does a booming foie gras dish, and then she follows up with a tuna tartar? Just because you have immunity, it doesn't mean that the judges won't remember a couple episodes down that you had them eating tartar. They are going to remember it. You can say you were safe for that specific challenge, you can say that it's just challenge-to-challenge, but I don't see free passes being given. I could not stop laughing when I saw those people sitting around the dinner table with their medals on. They never went into what the medals were for. It's this exclusive club, but we never heard why. What are these people doing with medals? Vietnam veterans can wear metals. What do these people get metals for? Because they have a ton of money? We're giving out medals for that now? I was cracking up. 'What do they get the medals for,' I kept wondering. I want to know how it works. What, are they celebrating the fact that they have a ton of money? I wasn't really familiar with the guest judge, but I thought he had some interesting things to say. You all know who I prefer to be a guest judge. I like the chef's chef, I like the guys who are teachers, who are old school, who are humble. The ones that don't need to ridicule the contestants. Until next week...
