Those of you as obsessed with Top Chef as I am already know that Hosea has won the $100,000 prize, and even though I love the show and enjoyed the season (because of Fabio, really), I couldn’t bring myself to care. I was personally rooting for Carla, whom I thought was annoying and under-qualified at first until she came out of nowhere with some mad culinary skills. Then I grew to love her wacky antics and giraffe-like awkwardness. I knew she was screwed the minute she agreed to take Casey’s suggestion on cooking the meat in a weird way she had never done before (can’t remember the name…). It’s such a shame that she royally screwed up at the finale when she was doing so well the past few challenges! I didn’t want to Stefan to win because, well, he was an arrogant asshole–even though he’s really talented. Now that I think about, I think maybe I would have almost prefered Stefan over Hosea. Hosea is nice and all, but he was practically handed the title; his sous chef was Richard, for God’s sake! Ah, well. Maybe next season. Until then, I’ll miss you Tom Colicchio, you sexy blue-eyed teddy bear you.
