"Top Chef" Power Rankings: The Phoenix-like rise of Sara Boyd

It's somewhat ironic that Sara Boyd was so anti-Ariane seeing as how she appears to be learning a thing or two from the now-disposed deviled egg-maker.

Just as "Top Chef's" cougar du jour dug herself out of an early hole, a 10-point week by Boyd has catapulted her into a fourth place tie with Adam Reinhard and Channel Surfing Commenter of the Year, Ms. Quarter. Can Boyd keep this comeback a-churning? Or was her rise to respectability -- as opposed to being dead stinkin' last -- a one-week anomaly that'll leave her crashing back down to Ariane-like reality with the return of soup-making Spike and foul-mouthed Andrew this week?

Also, so long Radhika. May your enthusiasm for high-quality restaurant service carry you ... zzzzzzzz.

Onto this week's rankings!

Let this be a warning, Roz ... you're a dead man. Not only have you compared me to the worst chef to ever pick up a spatula but you've flat out lied to our readers. "Stefan the Unstoppable"?! I totally thought of that first and you know it. Just because I got, ahem, 10 POINTS last week, don't let that turn you into a scared competitor. So sad.

Who's in the mood for some pan seared Thomas with a little artichoke puree? Mmm mmm.
