Also, Curtis stone in a t-shirt at the Quickfire looked sloppy. And I did not appreciate his dismissal of the bug food before he even tasted it. As a host, he should show leadership in being willing to try everything and show some enthusiasm at being given the opportunity to taste such food. And even though he is not a judge in the Quickfires, who knows how his (strong) opinions may affect those judges? I appreciate Padma not saying much when she does tastings in the Quickfires but lets the other judges take the lead on the response. His sloppy appearance and disdain for some of the dishes, before even trying them, was disrespectful of the chefs, the ingrediants, and the food as it was prepared. Never thought I would say it, but bring back Kelly! Or even Katie Lee from the first season of TC. They would have dressed appropriately and at least tried everything with some sort of decent attitude.
