Week 3: "Top Chef" Power Rankings

Oddly, my handy dandy AT&T guide does not list a new episode of "Top Chef" this week. So either something is screwy on my end or Padma and Co. are taking the week off to show a repeat of the Penn & Teller episode. Blimey!

Either way, Robin shocked the world last week by not only staving off elimination, but doing it with immunity from the Quickfire. Score one for the cancer survivor.

Fate, however, did not smile kindly on Biggie Smalls Ron, who dropped a few dope rhymes for his Haitian brethren, but ultimately got capped like a fellow Big Poppa before him.

If indeed this is an off week, Evan's going to have to hope his hot streak carries the same sizzle in October. He was the only person to place Ron at the bottom, giving him a total of 10 points and the lead. Sara, Thomas and Ms. Q also nabbed 5 points thanks to Big Red Kevin's Elimination win. Mary still sits in second with six points while Kelly, MJ and Adam remain huge, huge losers. They may as well get lip rings and call it a day.

Onto this week's (or next week's) rankings:

1. Jen Carroll
2. Michael "Maverick" V.
3. Kevin "Grizzly" Gillespie
4. Bryan "Goose" V.

Repeat? Why the heck did I rush home after watching Dexter with friends?

I shall remain mysterious and cast my choices next week.

Bravo, I hate you and your Wednesday-wrecking mother.
