Tonight's show was much more interesting. Again, the two NOLA chefs incorporated Louisiana aspects into the first challenge. Neither got accolades.
Sichel remains cocky and obnoxious. He doesn't appear to be a victim of creative editing. He looks like a jerk. I'd be hiding out until I was kicked off if I looked the way he appears, so far, on the show. It's disappointing. I'm hoping as the shows go on that he's able to switch gears and redeem himself or that he did so, rather. I feel sorry for him because watching him makes me cringe.
On the other hand, Justin comes off as humble and very likable if not a bit overwhelmed. I'm pulling for him to hang in there. I thought his kale dish was a good option. No one mentioned it so I assume it was acceptable. He wasn't in the bottom or at the top.
The cooking at Commander's segment was very entertaining and I enjoyed seeing the dishes from 4 Commander's Chefs' eras. That was fun. Sad that Jamie Shannon couldn't be there with Paul P, Emeril and Tory. RIP. Fun to see that group together.
Lally and Ti were representing. Very nice portrayal of a fine New Orleans restaurant.
Justin apparently slammed it on dessert.
If the rest of the shows are similar to this one, I'll enjoy the rest of the season.
