Thank you, Gabe, like earlier in the comments, I got drawn in to Videogum by your recaps of this show but stayed around for the fabulous scene that it is! Also, evil Heather! Bleh! I knew Sara was done for the second she tried to deliberately pick Heather's plate in that Sous Chef round. Yay nice Paul!

I still quote the Smashing Pumpkins from that episode, to paraphrase, "making teenagers depressed is like shooting fish in a barrel."

Yeah, I was like, what the hell is wrong with Lindsay's ears? Weird weird pink earrings that looked like extra big earlobes. Stylin!

Also, Sarah won $20K in the quickfire and Paul won . . . a trip for two to Costa Rica?! for winning the elimination challenge.

Here you go: The Top Chef producers saved some more cash and made Paul drive himself, Sarah, and Lindsay from Whistler down to Vancouver. They played some weird name game in the car that I couldn’t follow. Something about Q-tips? Quickfire: cook some Asian food with one of these three Master Top Chefs (whatever their names were). Ah, the twist is your master chef starts the cooking and you can’t communicate when you switch off. Paul: giant scallop something, too much Thai chili; Lindsay: scallops three ways, too much sauce, Sarah: cod something, delicious! Elimination round: Fire and Ice. Lindsay worries it’s too open to interpretation? She decides to cook halibut, but this time Bev won’t be there to screw it up. Right. Sarah is making pasta for days and frozen mousse sauce. Major carnage as Paul pulls the claws off live lobsters and then splits them. Ick! Cook, cook, cook, freeze, freeze, freeze. Padma psyches Sarah out by calling her name first, only to disappoint us all by allowing Sarah to stay. Paul and Lindsay sweat it out. “Lindsay, please pack your knives and go.”

I liked Beverly and am sorry to see her go. I swear she deliberately tripped Sarah on the skis and then she was using the blender at Sarah's station, totally psyching Sarah out. It was brilliant.

I remember some season past where someone used canned something or other and they were immediately called on it and eliminated. Ed, didn't you watch past seasons of this show so you could know to never ever use anything but fresh ingredients?! Tsk. I'll miss Ed, He seemed nice and also very competitive.

Yeah, Pee Wee said at least a couple of times he thought Ed's chicken was weird and I assumed it was because it was undercooked.

Seriously, if any of the contestants had simply named one of their dishes after a Playhouse character, don't you think they'd have won?

I read he had back surgery sometime during the filming of this season.

I don't want to freak you guys out, but it comes on at 6:30 where I live. Freaky, right?

Also, thank you for the recap, Peeps. I can't bring myself to watch it but I have been curious as to who has won.

When they announced Paul was the winner, I couldn't remember what he served. And then it seemed to me at first that all he'd won was two tickets to see the movie, not a trip to the premier. They must not have had any special hotel sponsors for that one cause they didn't gush about what fancy hotel he'd get to stay in or what airline he'd get to fly.

I really disliked Hugh in Top Chef Champions (or whatever it was called). He seemed like a complete ass. But he has really redeemed himself as a regular judge on the show. I hope they keep him.
