Jenny’s Choice #1
I love Food Network’s Chopped. I’ve given up almost all reality competitions, but I’m definitely hooked on this one. Tonight is the 10th season premiere, although you wouldn’t know it just by the timing, because there have been new episodes as recently as … well, last week. haha But still, with a fairly empty schedule, I wanted to take the time to recommend this one, since there are usually dramas and comedies on that get my picks for Tuesday nights. One of my favorite parts of this show is seeing if I can guess which chef or chefs will have a total “chefy” attitude—pompous, arrogant, and rude. Sometimes, we luck out and they are all great, but most of the time, it’s even more fun, because there’s at least one chef who thinks he is better than everyone there—including the judges.
On tonight’s episode, “The Big Scoop,” one, two, three, four mystery ingredients in the appetizer basket! One competitor loses count in the first round and misses getting marmalade on the plates. When there is no confession highlighting the mistake, can the judges’ investigative tasting skills reveal it? Then, the chefs hop into action with rabbit in the entrée round. What a surprise when the big scoop in dessert is vanilla ice cream! Hold on for a chilling finale where one competitor heads for a meltdown. (Oh goody! A meltdown! lol)
