    S23.E07: Week 7

    3 points for fount...is that the British spelling? I’m not googling, just laughing. I can’t wait for the tell all. It’s been 2 weeks now and nary the faintest recollection on who this Katie chick is at all. I feel like I have a present waiting for me. Don’t chall spoil it now! I still have nightmares of Hannah Bs crazy smile through the pain. Pageant fakery. Only thing that keeps me giggling was the potential that the bubblegum pink acetate polyplastic dress she was wearing could potentially burst into flames at any second from friction as she walked towards the Bye Van. Extra points if it took Colty with it.

    Along the same lines it seems even more plausible now that Colton used the Bachelorette season as his own springboard to personal virginal fame to become the Bachelor. What's her name is not even close to being his type. And seeing how smitten he is with the cheerleader type and the fact that producer picked girls has yielded at least a few that has peaked his pecker, how did he manage to not date this type of girl en masse along the way? Dime a dozen in high school and college and groupies and hangers on in sports. He's not exactly complicated. Something doesn't add up. I understand he was busy with his sports life but part of sports life is um.....winding down. I'm suspicious.

    I haven't seen that many seasons yet and I LOVE this idea. Because other than Grocery Store Joe (Ugh) being the fakest of fake to get to the end to have the biggest tragic breakup is usually a pretty good roadmap to be the next Bach. Not always but rooting interest is never a bad thing. You don't want to be the winner....you want to be the runner up with grenade. Oh and thumbs up for the use of the phrase "scrape off." Well crafted.

    She was so excited to have heard of fufu/had fufu which makes her a fufu expert, unless the one time she tried it was bad fufu but then she would have never known good fu from bad fu or mediocre fu or gramma's fu. I think the fu was kind of funky....Leila describe the texture as "interesting" which is never a good sign LOL. Can you imagine being that excited over injera? OMG THIS INJERA IS AMAAAAAZING.

    I guess at this point there is nothing left to do though. There is no other way to tie in Ali than to do a challenge in this format. I just think it's one of those things where your background or ability to connect to the story/event/person you are presented with becomes an advantage. You'd better hope your background in cooking your type of food will translate at the right time. In Eddie's case this didn't happen. For myself I can't imagine reading a dossier about a man, legend as he is, and then trying to connect some food stuff to it. Of course I'm Asian so I can always make something up and bring it back to some family meal or inspiration that would make it Asian LOL, which is ironic since I typically don't cook a lot of Asian food. Ali doesn't resonate with me for whatever reason so it would have been difficult to connect on the fly. I also don't like boxing. Everytime I get stuck watching those PPV events I wonder why anyone would put themselves through it....plus the blood.....oh the blood. I cannot imagine being covered in someone's else's blood and spit and having it in my mouth.

    If one of them had a brain cell between them they should have just cut it off and said to him “you mean the fact that we were sitting around during our DAYS off drinking wine while you are off dating our friends and we made jokes on who might be the next Bachlorette....you know, because only one person is picked....this speculation one day somehow means I’m not here for the right reasons or am not into you?? Does that make sense Colton? GFY.” does he seriously think that no one mentioned it?? That seems naive or a guy with a massive ego lol.

    I’m confused at Cassie’s editing. They are great at making out but we don’t know anything about her. She is whining at the top of her lungs that she is ready for marriage. It’s almost like she is trying to convince herself because others are accusing her of not being ready. Same with Caelynn. She says she’s ready but she’s young too. Maybe none of them are ready except for the lady who is divorced. And maybe she is rebounding and needs to slow her roll LOL I think Colton’s Pool O Women are not as great as they appear in gowns with hair and makeup.

    It kind of felt like half showing off the hot blonde he was going to let go (look how great she is and I have better in the cabin) and half making sure that no one in the family saw some glimmer that he was missing. He’s so blinded by his type right now I don’t think he’s doing well at figuring out who he’s compatible with (not just attracted to.) side note Hannah needs to evaluate that psycho pageant smile. He’s dumping your ass on national TV and you go full smiley face defense mechanism....that’s no way to go through life. Keep it real girl. It’s OK to show real emotions.

    You laugh but the finale locale is Mexico and the presenting sponsor is Taco Bell! Can't get more ironic or autentico than that! (not a spoiler, unless it turns out to be true LOL)

    Tom's argument was why use bottled sriracha when fresh chilies were available. His comment not mine. Tom was snarky this episode. Else it was edited that way LOL Nilou (sp?) was still grousing at judges table on how when the judges make a suggestion (make it more filipino) then the cheftestants should listen because they know what they are talking about. I think somehow that whole storyline got messy IMO. Why they were harping on the Adrienne making something based on Thrilla in Manilla when Sara got to say Lightning triggered her memories of getting veggies off the vine to save from a storm is beyond me. Even when they showed Tom and Nilou walking up to Adrienne during the prep they were the ones that brought it up, not her. I think her original thought WAS the heat. Either we didn't see the entire story or they were crabby at her. I agree with your line of thinking! I mean they are adding bacon HIDDEN VALLEY RANCH salad dressing (add trademark here) to add smokiness to dishes. Hypocritical much?!!! I mean I personally don't care either way but let's at least have an even snarky playing field for all of the cheftestants!

    Tom "It's so nice to see that you are putting out your best food as we get to the end of the season." Chicken breast with 2 sauces Pickled tomatoes, cucumbers with salmon Bread pudding with carmel corn Also children. With children. Crying. Mention children. Dumpling in tomato sauce Short ribs with bottled hot sauce\ Lukewarm soup with raw scallops

    I found it more annoying that chef's were required to be able to cook regional cuisine with any semblance of authenticity. I guess this is the by product of the new "food with a story" generation. Even if she had gone there, doesn't mean you can cook the food. Nor should you in my opinion. Why can't you listen to a story, feel something and then relate it back to one of your authentic memories and cook your own food?

    Kelsey has grown on me this season but I have this weird feeling that she is skating by because of her constant "I left my 9 month old son" for this which then morphs into "your kid someday will see what a strong woman you are" "women can do anything" narrative. Well that and the fact that the cheftestants kind of suck this season LOL

    I agree. Tom acts like he's over this whole thing. They could use some fresh blood tbh. Tom and Padma are kind of the faces of TC but Tom doesn't really have anything left to say and Padma is just amusing herself by her makeup and wardrobe choices now. It's like the entire show is a parody of itself. We've all accepted Hidden Valley Ranch as a normalized partner of the show on the same level as Terlato wines. KFC chicken challenge warranted barely a snicker from all of us....just exasperated sighs. I will also say that it was ironic that they were talking about having opinions or something and that not everybody needed to agree but they had to be tolerant of all opinions etc. and then flashed to Tom with a half hearted nod. Serious LOL on that one. Tom is pretty intolerant of anyone who differs in opinion from him. He barely does the "we should agree to disagree" thing in a cooking environment. His conviction is admirable but boy does he come off as dismissive most of the time. I enjoy his severely edited TV persona a lot more....more past than present.

    I was floored that he constructed a dish needing duck. Fresh duck is not standard in Whole Foods, frozen is. Unless he mistakenly remembered a special some week when they were shopping? That store is not close to being large enough to being stocked with fresh duck. Whole Foods is pretty generic in it’s protein offerings. He did kind of capture Ali’s loss. It looked like sadness on a plate.
