Table Talk » Top Chef 5: it's a wrap
I wanted Carla to win and I think she could have if she hadn't let Casey influence her so much. My heart sank when Casey said sous vide. What a huge mistake! Carla didn't need the judges to tell her what she did wrong, she knew.
Once that went down, I was sure that Stefan would clinch it. Stefan skills are top-notch. It cracked me up when Stefan picked Marcel but said something about Marcel being a jerk (I can't remember his exact word, but whatever it was, it described Stefan to a T). Ohmigod, that dessert was so ugly. It looked like 1980s bad wedding food. Stefan's squad looked luscious. I wanted to reach through the TV and get me some of that. I knew that he would rock the alligator challenge that Hosea threw at him. Stuff like that doesn't phase him.
Hosea was a surprise. I find him unmemorable. Maybe it's not him but it's because Top Chef's coverage of him has been all about his whining. Did he actually win any challenges? He did put out the best meal last night and that's what it comes down to.

I totally agree with you. I felt so bad for Carla; I knew sous vide was the kiss of death. I didn't think this was the most exciting finale they've done. Maybe it was the editing. Even though Stefan is a jerk, I thought it was sweet the way he was consoling Carla. Hosea is kind of a zero. I predict he will fade back into the woodwork. His girlfriend dumped him; no big surprise. Who sees anything about the guy that one doing all Spanish food anymore?
