Nyesha is cool as ice under pressure and runs a very calm kitchen.

I watched the episode of Chef Hunter when I saw she was on it. IIRC one of the owner's criticism was, she needed to relax, not be so serious, and show off more of her personality. I've noticed the same game face on TC. I thinks it's more a matter of her being lost in her own head about what she needs to accomplish, and being very intense about it. One thing I noticed her doing on both shows, and for a chef it's a habit she needs to break is, biting her nails, something I see as nerves. I'm thinking what can look like a perma-pissed off look is just the body language of someone whose focus and determination is wound tight. Not a bad trait in a competition like this, think Michael Voltaggio.
She has a perma-pissed off look .

She's so calm, cool and collected.
Loved in LTC when she said "I'm really really mad" calmly.

Anyway, no harm in repeating how much I have grown to like Nyesha. At first, I thought she was way too serious & grumpy, but I'm glad they're showing her more relaxed side on LCK. She still looks super focused but not nearly as wound up.
Also, for me, Nyesha just bumped Tre as the "Left Way Too Early" chef of Top Chef. She seemed to be one of the more skilled chefs this season, but because she left so frickin' early, I still have no idea what her cooking style is. I'd like to know more about her food so, I'm hoping she goes all the way with LCK and earns her way back into the competition.
