Malarkey Madness: Da Bears and Da Beers

Brian Malarkey power ranks all the competition football-style.

Gotta love this game!

Great seats on the sidelines/arm chair chef.

Put me in coach!

This week's ranking first and last week's ranking second.

1/1 Stephanie - "Touchdown": Flexing her muscles in the Quickfire Challenge .... Very nice! Going for the win in the big game. She is in the zone and making it look it easy, in a league of her own, but the Patriots should have won it all last year too ...

2/2 Richard - BLAZE "Boring yet effective defensive stand": After last week's horrible salmon dish, I completely understand his game plan. Stay out of the judges' chamber and relax with a beer in the dreaded stew room. It's better than getting the beat down from the judges at 3 in the morning.

3/5 Antonia - "Girl's Got Game": Banana and pineapple. It looks like she's on the offense and getting ready to do some scoring?

4/6 Dale - "For the love of the Game": I thought William "The Refrigerator" Perry was going to eat you! Nice turnaround; broken pretzels to BBQ KING! I'm pissed I didn't get anything for the BBQ Challenge last year. Great dish and what a good one for him to win in The Windy City with DA BEARS! 5/5 Andrew - "Playing to Win": I love the helmet and the passion, He's more a mascot than a player in this game.

6/3 Jennifer - "Win It for Zoi": That was not tailgating food.

7/3 Mark - "Blowing the Lead": A huge fall in the rankings -- his station was a disaster and the food appeared to be the same. If he can't get it together, the hot-tubbing parties with Spike are going to be distant memories.

8/10 Spike - All the beer tastes the same to you? When did the Bears win the last Super Bowl? He was lucky the Bears fans didn't kick his ass! Come on Spike and show us what you got! Play like it's the last game of your life, it very well could be ...

9/11 Lisa - "Last Player Picked": I hope they don't have another team challenge because I don't think the other players want to work with you.

10/ 9 Nikki - "Fumble": She got so lucky. All bets off!

Ryan - I admire the fact that he went for it and put himself out there. No way he should have gone home -- it was Nikki's time again and some how she slipped through. Good luck! The hot-tubbing was hilarious. It gets so boring in the house you gotta do what you gotta do! Next week's looks LAME! Lets get to cooking and skip out on the drama class ...

Come on tell me what you think ...

Go San Diego Super Chargers!
