Week 8: "Top Chef" Power Rankings

Talky Talk Robin couldn't talk herself out of elimination last week.

Can I get a Hallelujah?

FINALLY, the thinning field has purged itself of one of "Top Chef's" worst contestants in recent memory. Now, it's a five horse race -- with Eli and Jen fighting for table scraps while Bryan blandly serves as the third wheel to a potentially epic showdown between Big Red Kevin and Michael "I Make Snide Comments Behind Kevin's Back" Voltaggio.

Should be good.

As for our Power Rankings, Evan solidified his top spot by nabbing 10 points, while Adam jumped into second, at least providing Mr. Siegle with some competition down the stretch. How it all shakes out: Evan, 36; Adam, 26; Boyd, 22; Ms. Q, 20; T-Roz, 16; Mary, 11; Kelly, 11; MJ, 6.

What's funny is that I was thinking I should have a drink before I make my rankings... and perhaps creep out of last place.

Tonight it was a delightful Italian Pinot Grigio. And a win for Kevin...if only I would've followed the masses and picked Fatty Costello as my numero cinque.

As a sidenote, my word verification for this comment is "Mated Fig." Sounds like a Top Chef quickfire challenge to me.
