"Top Chef" Power Rankings: Dilido Jeff Goes Up in Flames

Crazy Eyes Carla kept using nonsensical words. Fabio almost packed up his knives thanks to the Packers. Everyone scored a measly point and stayed static in the rankings.

Yep, last week was one we'd all like to forget.

Then again, after the stunning predictability of Stefan the Unstoppable during the past few Elimination Challenges, a topsy-turvy week might be just what the doctor (pepper?) ordered for our weekly attempt at "Top Chef" power rankage.

After all, fate dealt a far worse blow to Mimbo Jeff, who in an ironic twist, saw his food smarts continually handicap him in the kitchen.

And c'mon, man, don't go bad-mouthing Tom Colicchio on your way out the door. That isn't how Dilido Beach rolls.

Only six chef-testants remain. Wow.

Onto the rankings ...

Man, was I disappointed when, after emailing you my power rankings, I realized it was only Tuesday and I'd have to wait an entire 28 hours for Top Chef. Ergo, I entitle my rankings this week as "Balls! It's Tuesday!"

1. Football Fabs
2. Snooker Stefan
3. Jai Alai Jamie
4. Handball Hosea
5. Croquet Carla
6. Lawn Bowling Leah

Given this seasons theme of the bottom finishers of one week are the top the next, I'm putting my list in reverse order. Hopefully I can manage a point this week with my new strategy.

1. Leah
2. Stefan
3. Carla
4. Hosea
5. Fabio
6. Jamie

Since I am awful at predicting who wins, I am going to leave it up to chance. Drawing from a hat for the rest of the year will be my strategy.

1.Stefan
2. Leah
3. Fabio
4. Hosea
5. Jamie
6. Carla

I drew 5 through 2 first and was left with Stefan and Carla. Thankfully I picked Stefan as 1st.

About halfway through the episode, I wanted to name my rankings, "Balls! How I know Jamie is going home since they showed her being uninspired by the French dude's cooking and he didn't get to taste her food."

Man, I really thought she was No. 2 behind Stefan.
