Anyone who was bothered by your snake comment last week should lighten up. They should be more off put by the nightly news. Go Padma!!!

Sorry to be pedantic, but i just have to say that biologically, snakes, alligators and crocodiles are reptiles, as are turtles, which you don't mention. Frogs are amphibians. As I have never eaten snake, I can't comment on the gastronomic difference.

Cheers, and thanks for the great show.

Why did you have to use the F bomb? I don't understand the world of entertainment thinking it's just another word to use. Disappointed.

Padma, it was unnecessary for you to use profanity on last week's show. It does not become you to lower yourself to the level of a punk rocker. You are far too classy to be throwing the "MF" word around on TV. It was tasteless and silly. There you are in your designer duds with your hair and make up done perfectly and you're doing a bad imitation of Courtney Love. Please, just be yourself and don't try so hard to be common.

It is nice to see you smiling and in apparent good mood, Padma. Last season you and Colichio looked fed up and angry. I was even wondering if that was the last Top Chef Season, since both of you didn't seem to enjoy it at all.

Top Chef has been my husband's and I favorite show. We are not into drama, but into watching talented chefs and their amazing dishes. We are not chefs, but we love food, so this show has been not only entertaining, but also educational.

You are a beautiful person and we wish you all the best in the world.

No one that I know here in Texas goes around saying Yee Haw and eating rattlesnakes. Please.

I am a native to San Antonio and it is really great to see the show here and to have our city celebrated, and I have grown up eating Mexican food. I do hope that Top Chef takes into account that there is more than just the Mexican culture here, the Hill Country has a reach and long history of German Culture for example. I want to see the Mexican food featured a lot, but I hope that more of the Texas cultures are showcased as well.

You're so well spoken on Top Chef. Why did you swear at the contestants this week?? Padma, that is just wrong on SO MANY levels!!
