The Dark Horses
#10) Josh Valentine (18): Is anyone else sick of Josh acting like an arrogant prick when heís been mostly terrible all season? If youíre going to act like a prick, back it up. John has won or almost won nearly every single challenge the entire season. Stefan has a handful of really popular restaurants, and he narrowly lost his original season. Josh, on the other hand, has put out shit more often than heís put out good food. He needs to shut his mouth and cook.
#11) Eliza Gavin (16): Elizaís never been on the bottom. However, sheís never made one memorable dish, either. This week, her team-up with Josie was a disaster and, quite frankly, she let Josie boss her around. If she canít manage to assert herself when it matters most, we donít expect her to be able to assert herself with her own dishes and stand above the pack. She could certainly stick it out for a few more weeks, however.
#12) Josie Smith-Malave (14): Josie was low for the first two weeks she appeared on the show. Her cooked turkey in the Thanksgiving episode was a disaster, and if she hadnít earned a quickfire immunity, she would have gone home. Sheís not a great chef and, despite this, she just took control this week, not even bothering to listen to Eliza. Iím shocked the team didnít end up in the bottom three with the salty cardamom bitters dish, but I suppose pulling slightly ahead this week isnít really that much of a compliment.
Hereís a look at how each of the two ballots shook out:
