Top Chef Result: What Do You Think? (Spoilers Ahead)

So it was Stefan, Hosea and Carla, and we all know who won.

What do you think?

I was relieved Stefan didn't. They said it best: great technical skill, no soul. Arrogant prick, too.

Carla? She made the same mistake twice in letting others overrule her better instincts. It bit her hard today. Long-term, she learned the most valuable lesson of all, provided she reflects that lesson day-to-day. I was rooting for her the most, but alas.

Hosea? Hehe, NOW I see the set-up. All season, they focused on his rivalry with Stefan. Given that these things are edited afterward, I should've seen it. The faltering of Stefan lately. . .the constant attention on Hosea's rivalry. . .the build-up of Fabio telling Stefan he'd kick his butt if he didn't win.

Ah, in retrospect, in all makes more sense now. Could be 20/20 hindsight, but it makes sense to me.

What did YOU think?
