TAR 30, Recap Leg 2, 1/10/18

Welcome to Leg 2! Last time, on But Both O’s Are in the Right Positions, Except Not, 11 teams started Amazing Race 30, the Most Competitive Season Ever! There was a romp in a fountain and then a flight to Iceland. Team Big Brother made good time, and Goat Yoga got into fights. Slam Dunk got a penalty, the Skiers finished first, and in the closest finish ever, Dessie and Kayla were eliminated. Who will be eliminated. . . next? (click for more)

TAR 30, Recap Leg 1, 1/3/18

Welcome to Leg 1 of The Amazing Race 30! (Toyouke: “I can't believe this show is on a normal night where it won't be preempted by football.”) The Amazing Camera careens through New York City (Toyouke: “Hey it's not LA!”), as usual, to Phil, who is flying through the air in a helicopter high above the city. Phil lands in Washington Square Park, the Starting Line for The Amazing Race 30. However, the teams are racing through the city as they are the Most Competitive Teams Ever!

So the eleven Most Competitive Teams Ever for The Amazing Race 30 are: (click for more)

Top Chef 1/11/18--"Now That's a Lot of Schnitzel" summary

Previously on “Top Chef”: both Claudette and Lee Anne returned to the competition. Nice. Then everyone had to cook outside at a campsite, in the snow. So that was tons of fun. Bruce won, because of reasons. I guess because everyone has been talking about how everyone knows him and so he needed to win at some point. Tu lost, for trying to do to much. He's still headed to Last Chance Kitchen, but there wasn't an episode this week because he's the only one there. I'm sure this week there will be something. (click for more)

Project Runway All Stars 1/11/18--"Damsels in Distress" summary

Previously on “Project Runway All Stars”: we have to watch people who have been on All Stars before, because that's the gimmick this season: people who have been on All Stars before vs. people who have not. I would argue that All Stars is not so different from regular Project Runway that you need to distinguish between the two groups but whatever. Each group was a team and they either did spring or fall collections. The rookies won, because of course they did. Merline won, because she was told her dress was boring and tried to do a thing with the sleeves and succeeded, I guess. It was a perfectly fine dress, but everyone pretended she had great ideas, instead of having Anne tell her it was boring and then scrambling to come up with something. Casanova made a swimsuit and coverup, basically, and was eliminated. (click for more)

Top Chef 1/4/18--"This Is Not Glamping" summary

Previously on "Top Chef": the Quickfire involved kiddie tools. Also revamping the kids' menu, which was arguably the point of the whole thing. Adrienne won for making a cauliflower crust pizza. Then everyone had to make a dish based on their "heritage", which was loosely interpreted. Some people did ancestry and some did where they're from, like the South. Chris, who already has based his restaurant on his heritage, won with lemonade fried chicken. Tyler lost, because he tried to marry what little he knew of his heritage with where he's from and it didn't work. (click for more):

TAR 30, Recap Leg 0, 12/27/17

Welcome back to the Amazing Race!  It’s season number thirty, and the gimmick this season involves competitors!  So, like, people who like to compete, which explains the overage of all male teams this season.  (Toyouke: “I guess as gimmicks and stunt casting go, "competitors" isn't the worst they've done. I mean, the Internet people ended up being a decent season.“)  Oh, and I brought Toyouke along for the snark. Aren’t you lucky?  Since the teams of two were predetermined (unlike last season), we’ll be able to do this the way it should be, as in without watching the first episode.  The eleven teams for TAR30 are (click for more):
