I was happy Robyn made it. I don't think she can ever win but she's tried hard and not been as crazy this time. hehe

Yeah, I have to admit, Robyn's growing on me. She drives me nuts and I think she should be gone, but then, I find myself rooting for her and hoping she can hang in there. Can't explain it, except that I guess she's an underdog or something. But I don't know who I want to win at this point. Maybe Robyn , maybe not .

So glad Elise is finally gone!!! She was a really good cook until Friday night. I was afraid she might have been one of the final two and possibly win this thing. But my hubby-poo said he "knew all along that Ramsay would never choose her to run one of his restaurants because she's too abrasive and doesn't take criticism well and doesn't like authority." He thinks GR will "choose Millie because he has a personality that works well with diners and he's playful and funny and people like that." We'll see ....................

There's one thing I don't like though ... and that's the way Ben treats Robyn. He's rather condescending toward her. I get it that she can grate on your nerves, but still, show a little respect, man!!! But other than that, I have no issues with Ben.

I don't have any particular favorite yet, but at this point I'm just glad Barbie and Elise are gone and I will be happy to see anybody other than those two win it.

I have an idea for next season. I wonder if GR would be open to maybe incorporating the game Donkey Kong into one of his challenges. Like have one of those teetering ladder/shelf thingies like they have in the video game, but with food items on it, and the donkeys have to grab something off the teetering thing without making the other crap fall ... or something like that, I don't know. Maybe I'm just a silly cow.

Yeah, part of me is rooting for her too. Maybe it's the underdog thing, but I like her passion and her desire to be the best she can be. I was also touched and surprised by how appreciative she was of Jennifer. So there is a certain maturity there as well.

There's no question Elise is a pretty girl, but that attitude ... Oy!!! Could it be that the attitude is really just a manufactured part of the show to get ratings??? Because it would be such a shame if she's really like that in real life.

When she did that cooking segment on that local show I mentioned a couple weeks ago she was very soft spoken, demure and incredibly friendly. Seeing as how she's representing a product she likely has to be. She was also wearing a tube top.

From what I can gather, people who finish in the top 5 or so every year have a resume builder which they can use to their advantage. One guy from several years ago, who really didn't do that well either time on the show (a very stout individual who Ramsey sent home with health issues the first time. Robert maybe?), came down here to revamp a local restaurant, which he did. It later closed for other issues related to liquor license and clientele.

Ben and Nick, final 2. I just can't get past Robyn's weird quirkiness.
The two guys act and cook like chefs running a restaurant. Robyn? Nope.

I'm team Millie for the win.

I'm not a fan of Nick.

I'm not a fan of Robyn.

I don't really have an opinion about Ben--so I would be fine with him winning.

I am definitely not a fan of Michelle.

I actually was a Barbie fan, believe it or not! I know I'm probably one of maybe 10 of us in the whole land that are...she was an underdog to me and I didn't like how they treated her.

The editing is also silly. It shows them all screaming at each other, but then you can see them laughing and talking together in the background too.

Millie is lazy. Ben doesn't communicate. Michelle is timid. Nick can be bossy. Still with Ben and Nick as final two. Gotta look at the bigger picture of them actually running a restaurant and who can do it best overall..not just cooking.
