Top Chef: Bland Steak (Spoilers Ahead!)

Steak, steak everywhere, let's all have a bite. Once again, straying away from the initial idea of "Wedding Wars" (which I personally think they dropped after seeing the HORRENDOUS wedding cake that Pirate Lisa made .. goodness, talk about ruining a bride's day!) and a bit of a departure from "Restaurant Wars," the remaining four chefs found themselves working with meat. Get your mind out of the gutter, people, we're still talking about steak here!

So yeah, this week's episode was a bit of a bore for me. I mean, it was no surprise to see who the bottom two were [again]. But I guess the thing that really irked me was the fact that it was Lisa and Spike who made it down to the final four, when it should have been Jennifer and Dale. Seriously, those two cuts were the most surprising ones for this season. No good; Julia does not approve.

Anyway, Spike and Lisa end up at the bottom two .. and of course, Lisa ends up getting saved once again. Blegh. Normally, I would be jumping up and down in anger that Lisa managed to stay alive once again [six times so far biatch, and yes, I am keeping count), but Spike really did deserve to go home. As much as I hate to admit it, when it comes down to Spike and Lisa, Spike isn't exactly the most skilled chef. Sure, Spike seems like a cool dude and all, but he's had his fair share of douche bag moments, and managed to survive by the skin of his teeth, weeks up until now.

Touché, Pirate Lisa, but you better be packing your knives next week.

I'm so glad that Spike was finally sent to pack up his knives. That guy bugged me like no other.

I wouldn't mind seeing Antonia as one of the final two, but something tells me she won't be able to handle the pressure.

Just a hunch.
