Hawaii.

Alan Wong.

4 becomes 2.

Shut up, Bravo.

From tv.com:

Location, location, location! The remaining chefs travel to Hawaii for this round, and must use food native to the island for a luau that ends with naming the final contestants.


I fully endorse Marcel making a foam or gelee out of poi.

Extended episode, got to wait a couple more minutes - however it looks good though :-)

LOTS of early product placement I noticed...

I'm sure it's BS. More Marcel bashing.

Oh yeah, and for those who haven't seen yet, Sam was elected fan favorite.

Maybe it will be about his moving the Steamer. I'm bored with this one. I hate extended episodes.

It's an extended ep, so the show hasn't finished yet. I think the lock was only set for a regular hour.

I still do not understand why exactly we are supposed to hate Marcel--he was voted the most we want to see eliminated. It doesn't gel with what we've seen.

Marcel rocks and the way they portray him with the editing stinks. Its obvious hes just cocky and theres nothing wrong with that. While the other contestants try to backstab him and get physical he stays out of it.

I put all 20 of my votes towards whoever it was that was gone first - the rest of these clowns were miserable & not deserving of the title "Top Chef"

No freaking way! OK, I can live with this, even though I am totally shocked. No wonder Elia and Sam are bitter...Sam should have been there over Ilan though.

I think Marcel might win...b/c you know, Ilan sucks!

Dammit, Sam, why did you have to play it so safe?

I figured they'd keep Ilan over Sam just for DRAMA, if nothing else.

I liked Elia until she pulled a Sam and tried to save her ass at the last minute.

You know, I didn't think it was possible to dislike Elia and Ilan more than after last week's episode, but this put it over the top. The fact that she claims she watched someone cheat through the entire competition, over multiple challenges, and didn't say a word until her sorry ass was going out the door? And she has the audacity to claim she's a "professional" who truly loves cooking as an art? She really is quite the pathetic little coward.

Now I really wish Collichio had insisted that all of them get thrown off last week, like threatened to quit if the producers didn't do it immediately.

The only consolation is that the entire judging panel saw right through that bullshit. And I loved that the judges demanded that they give them specific examples of the so-called "cheating" and they couldn't name one. Beautiful. Squirm you little whiny babies.

So, Marcel v. Ilan...it's a classic Western showdown people.

I don't want either one to win. Ilan is an ass and Marcel sucks too. It looks like they were setting up for this from the beginning. If I had a gun to my head, I'd pick Ilan. His food is more appealing to me, regardless of his behavior.

I don't care if Marcel is being bullied; I have no sympathy for him. There has to be a reason everyone (including Elia now) hates him. The producers didn't have to live with him 24/7, so I trust the contestants over them. His food/technique is interesting, but I think Sam deserved to stay over him. I'm very sad about that.

Yay! Sam won the Fan Favorite! At least, there is that consolation. I voted for him once. It's not because he's good-looking (I don't find him attractive). He makes awesome food, prick or not. I'm always salivating when he describes his dishes.

The trio of asshats should have been out but Marcel & Ilan are in the final.

The "cheating" was nothing in the big picture.

However the asshat trio more than likely shot all their future job opportunities right in the foot.

I am so glad two of the unindicted co-conspiritors are gone.

I cannot believe that group meeting: "if we say something, it should be about cheeting." As if they were picking their grievence out of a hat or something! I hate them all (except Marcel).

It looks like Marcel really brought it tonight.

Sam won the Fan Favorite and Marcel was chosen as the chef people most wanted eliminated...I call BS!

Ilan and Elia are now, firmly, numbers 1 and 2 on my Most Hated Reality Show Contestants list and it's a really long list.

Wow. With friends like Elia, who needs enemies.

Sam, STFU! You goad Elia into calling Marcel a cheater, then, when you have the opportunity to back her up, you wuss out as usual. What a prick.

Yippee! Two down and the biggest douchebag to go!!
