GEORGIE, who tells me she's a 50-year-old lady, is so mad that she says "we do not plan on having our Top Chef party/get-together for the final show, or next season after this as our confidence in the judges went down the tube. Show/drama took over challenge..sad. Please let me know where Dave and Harold open their own resturants...and can you provide email to Dave or forward this to him as we are so proud of him!"
Georgie, please have your party. You are a 50-year-old lady at the prime of it all, on top of the world, and I think that you should celebrate that with a Top Chef party on Wednesday night. The judges are incredibly opinionated with extensive backgrounds in food and they were united in their decisions in Vegas!
CAMERON has another message for the judges: "I could smack those self-righteous judges who THINK they're all that. Well they AINT. Shame on you, judges! There is a hot oven waiting for you on the other side!"
LYDIA in FISHKILL, NEW YORK has conspiracy theories on her mind!: "Methinks Bravo needed to fit in with Dave's schedule to get to Cannes on time and orchestrated Dave's removal for everyone's convenience and I feel ripped off."
Sorry, Lydia. Dave left for Cannes last week -- three weeks after we taped the finale. His schedule was clear for a victory!
Let's end it all with some sweet lovin' for Dave from CHERYL: "I would just like to tell Dave precisely how endearing, sweet and true he appears on the program, and though forgetting that third dish probably negated his title of Top Chef, I truly have learned a lot from his philosophies, and, as an artist, I totally recognize the emotional ups and downs under pressure. And, I don't care what other's think about it, talking to one's self in anticipation of a performance in public is not only acceptable, it is the sign of genius (I say humbly). Oh, and the 'walk in cooler' snippit was priceless. Good luck to you and Bravo TV."
Thanks for all your emails, folks.
