"Top Chef" Power Rankings: Jamie Needs a Tanner Family Hug
After Kelly McBride so splendidly served as a pinch-hitter during last week's Commercial Interruption -- I'd like to say it was a pile of work keeping me away, but really, I was just embarrassed that I picked Jamie as my chef du jour -- it's onto another week of Pow-Pow-Power Rankings!
First Dilido Jeff. Now DJamie Tanner.
Maybe you had Hosea and Fabio ranked higher than they deserved to be, but on wow factor alone, it appeared our two fallen friends were the best threats to topple the Bald Baby Maker. Now? Well, it's clearly Stefan's contest to lose.
Donna Jo's apathy was clear mid-episode when she continually yawned her way through lunch with Frenchy Frencherson. After they showed our guest judge making the rounds -- without a not-so-subtle stop at Jamie's cooking station for some expert advice -- well, we knew it was the end of Team Rainbow.
(For the record, can anyone name the other two members of Team Rainbow? Wow, what a lame group.)
Also, kudos to ACon for being the only person to put Jamie at the bottom. And what is with Boyd and Adam? Are you guys joined at the hip? Break the tie already!
Onto this week's rankings ... which like Stefan, see Kelly pulling further and further ahead of the pack. But don't let that discourage you. You wouldn't want to quit mid-competition like Leah da Ho, would you?
