Thread: Chopped episode June 12

    That shaw is awesome without the judges. With the judges, I can barely watch it on a good day. I like to pre record, and just watch the contestants go at it, fast forwarding at the judges comments.

    I think everyone, even just a couch potato, knows that the results of these shows(Chopped, Masterchef, Next Iron Chef, etc) are meaningless and fabricated. Nothing to do with anything. I mean, most of these shows are like 1 hour out of your life and you get about 7 minutes of cooking, and 1 minute of solid analysis. The rest is just advertisements, stingers, teasers, clips of people sweating/crying/swearing/running/hugging, about 10 minutes of boneheaded opinions and self-aggrandizing "criticism", or tracking shots of empty kitchens and people standing in line.

    Just being on TV and cooking is cool. I wouldn't care if I was the first to go.

    There is a guy with a blog called no recipes that was on the show once. He is not a professional chef, but his food was praised as the best tasting in the first round. They booted him because his appetizer wasn't "cohesive" enough, but it was supposed to be tasters. He got booted because he did not work in a restaurant, and they want to reward those in the "biz".
    They have too many criteria that have nothing to do with cooking.

    Chicharon bulaklak is good! I was rooting for the Filipino dude, but then I'm biased. :-)
