My best friend Michele has a theory about why this season stinks. It’s because it followed ‘All Stars’ and we just really all knew and kinda loved — or kinda hated — the folks competing. These poor people can’t live up to that. Plus, the challenges are getting stale.
I think it’s the predictability of the entire thing. You already know what’s coming with the challenges and whatnot. After the excitement of the 5,000 chef battle royale, the show settled down. Even the cheftestants look bored. And, where’s the really irritating personality like Marcel?
