Gail Simmons reacts to Danyele's Judges' Table confession.

on Dec 13, 2012

We’ll see how she does. But it’s just too bad that she showed us her hand in that way. Although again, we don’t judge on that necessarily -- we judge on the food in front of us. Her food, that night, indicated that she was not pulling her weight, that she was not cooking to the best of her abilities because her food was really lacking and she was aware that it was lacking. It wasn’t as if she was trying her hardest and you really thought she was giving us her all. When we walked up to that table, Danyele admitted, before she even gave us anything to eat, that she wasn’t happy with her food and that she was very nervous, and it showed. Confidence goes a long way on Top Chef, and she wasn’t at her best that evening. But, it happens.

GS: This next episode is one of my favorites. It was one of the more fun days we had this season.
