To quote Dirty Dancing, when I am wrong, I say I am wrong. Last week I indicated that I didn’t think Lisa could find her way around a steak but Richard could . . . um, what a shock that was. Richard’s was undercooked and improperly butchered . . . and Lisa’s wasn’t.
So, Spike and Lisa can do something right: butcher and cook a steak.
Lisa wouldn’t want the responsibility of choosing a protein? I would! Fortunately, that was the reward for Quick Fire winner Spike, who once again squandered it. Frozen scallops? That’s the special protein you choose? Seriously.
Stephanie clinched the win, showing that she is indeed a contender. I am worried about Richard though – he hasn’t been doing as well lately. I think it’s high time to step it up again.
My husband brought up an interesting point: Lisa has been in the bottom three for countless weeks. How has she managed to survive? And all the time at the Judges’ Table she wears such a puss . . . I think she will be next to go.
Final two: Richard and Antonia. What do you think?
EDITED TO NOTE: I originally said that Antonia had won — fortunately Virtual Frolic caught my gaffe and corrected me. My sincere apologies for the error.
