A One Screenshot Top Chef Recap: Week 11

He was "that" close. As were all the near losers of losers of the last couple of weeks. Leaving us with a sorry excuse for a final 5. Black Tiffany! Antonia! Really? REALLY!?!?

This season has been playing out as Richard and the also rans and if he wins then bully for Top Chef. However, if he stumbles making hot dogs on a boat or whatever the hell they're doing next week, then there is a problem. You cannot bring back a bunch of old losers, call them "All-Stars" and have some one like Carla win. Carla is a fine cook but she was brought on the show because she was one of the show's All-Star personalities not chefs.

Dale and Angelo were not personalities, they were brought on to cook good food. They would be perfect follies for the eventually victorious Richard who is one of the top 5 best chefs who did not win. A case maybe can be made for Angelo but generally that cannot be said for any one else this season. It is a stable of the best or most likable of the middle, most of whom never deserved to win.

But you know who has already one this season, PSYCHO-THERAPY! Every losing chef talks about how much happier they are as people now, it is beautiful.

Oh yeah, also, Paula Deen is the worst.

Though I loved when she was talking there was a bunch of funny cutaways.

"I'm from the south" jumpcut to Black Tiffany
"How we show our love" jumpcut to Carla
"Lasagna" jumpcut to a gleeful Mike
