Ostrich eggs caused the demise of another chef on Top Chef last night as the contestants were asked to prepare a new American lunch. The lunchgoers turned out to be 50 Top Chef hopefuls who didn't make the final cut. All things considered, they weren't as snarky as I expected and the episode ran without any big surprises.
It was a typo that sent Danielle packing on Stylista. The teams were tasked to put together a party page highlighting the New York fashionistas but neither team succeeded in getting all the names right.
Danielle simply became the weakest link when Kate again took all of the credit for the good and denied any of the blame. Good tactic, don't you think?
