I think if this was a competition to find a grill chef or short order cook - and there weren't gimmicks like the vending machine challenge - Mike would actually do pretty well.
I've always said I had high hopes (no pun intended) for him - I felt he was the dark horse who would come out from nowhere to end up in the final four. It wasn't his fault his teammates shouted him down and forced him to follow a list instead of just giving him leeway to buy wine or something.
Sorry for the sarcasm about stoners. I can do laid-back, but not "mellow." It's a personal pet peeve is all.
