Go Jennifer! I was cheering when she screamed, "SHUT UP! JUST SHUT UP!" at Elise.
And Elise shut the hell up... didn't she? She didn't even mouth-off when they went upstairs to the apartment to talk about the elimination nominee.
To me that proves she will only bully the weak, like Carrie. She backs down from people who forcefully give it right back to her.
JMO: Besides the drama factor, GR kept Elise on because she had/has the best palate
I agree with you LennieB! I think GR was totally impressed with how well Elise did on the taste test. The narrator even said, GR thinks a good palate shows a person's potential at being a good chef. He may see something in Elise. Did Natalie get even one flavor right?
I don't mind Natalie leaving. Her recent habit of blaming other people for her own mess-ups and then turning on the waterworks was getting on my last nerve.
Although I did think it was kind of sweet the way all the guys gathered around her to console her during her last crying fest.
