Top Chef 12/17/15--"It's a Dry Heat" summary

Previously on “Top Chef”: everyone traveled to Santa Barbara to cook with sea urchins and drink wine. We saw the return of the “Sudden Death” Quickfire, which is a waste of time because although Giselle lost the Quickfire she was fine. Grayson won the Quickfire so she had immunity, meaning we didn't have to listen to her complain about things. Mostly. The Elimination challenge at first involved cooking in pairs to make surf and turf, then in a twist everyone had to cook head-to-head, one surf and one turf. Kwame won and was kind of shocked, which was cute. Frances lost, apparently because she had too much on the plate? It wasn't super clear. (click for more)

TAR 27 Recap Leg 12, 12-11-15

Welcome to Leg 12! Last time, on Instructions Are Really Just Suggestions Until You Receive Time Penalties, 4 teams raced from India to Hong Kong and Macau. Teams were fairly even until Justin and Diana made some major errors that put them behind. But as fate would have it, the Cheerleaders can’t seem to open their eyes underwater, and the Green Team survives nearly an hour’s worth of time penalties to make the final three, causing the elimination of Tiffany and Krista. This leaves us with three teams: Justin and Diana, who made a fake Amazing Race and became engaged, and struggled on leg 1 but managed to win seven legs so far; Kelsey and Joey, the reporters who had a not so secret alliance with the Green Team, but managed to finish in second place a record five times; and Logan and Chris, the paparazzi who can’t stop sniping at each other. Who will win the Amazing Race 27? (click for more)

Top Chef 12/10/15--"Spines and Vines" summary

Previously on “Top Chef”: the chefs had to do pop-ups with various “ethnic” cuisines. “Vegan” counts apparently. There was little drama in terms of people getting bossy or failing at getting food out of the kitchen. Marjorie won for making a Persian dessert so good the owner of the restaurant is going to put it on the menu. Despite Grayson's constant bitching that she couldn't use any meat in her dish, Renee's stuffed beets were deemed worse and Renee was sent home. (click for more)

TAR 27 Recap Leg 11, 12-4-15

Welcome to Leg 11! Last time, on U-Turns Are Great Fun, 5 teams continued to race through Agra, India. There were balloons. Justin and Diana U-Turned the paparazzi who managed to do both Detours and still check in before Denise and James Earl, who were eliminated. Oh, and Justin and Diana racked up their seventh win. Ugh. Someone needs to take him down a peg. Who will be eliminated. . . next? (click for more)

Top Chef 12/3/15--"Pop Up Pandemonium" summary

Previously on “Top Chef”: Bravo made new graphics for this season, all “surfer” and “California” and whatever, and I don't like them. 17 contestants start out this season, with one returning contestant, Grayson. They didn't make a big deal about it which was nice. Grayson was on the Texas season, and was the one woman who was nice to Beverly, and basically didn't take shit from anyone. She also did talk back to the judges some, so her defiance at Judges' Table was expected. The Elimination challenge was to make a dish for a festival or something. You can make anything you want. Wesley was dirty and Grayson was boring. Jeremy won with a clean simple crudo, and Garret was sent home for being inconsistent, apparently. (click for more)

Top Chef 12/2/15--"Stop the Presses" summary

I feel like this show hasn't been on in ages. Right? And I actually like this show. This season is “California”, meaning they're going to drive around a bunch for no reason. Whatever, I'm still excited. Mainly because I actually LIKE this show. (click for more)
