I really like this show, but what is REALLY annoying me is the chefs' constant smoking.
How can they taste the food properly when they do nothing but smoke all the time when they are not cooking ??
It turns my stomach
Can you imagine the smell in the living area ??
It must absolutely stink

They can't. Not sure what pace you're watching at so I'll be vague but one contestant in the current series uses the excuse that they have just finished a cigarette to duck out of the blind taste test.

That was last week on ITV2

Lot of top chefs smoke. Marco Pierre White smokes, he seems to have done ok.

I've watched this so far, we're down to the last six, but next week looks like a totally different show, who won, was it filmed, I know Gordon had some personal issues so was it abandoned??

I didn't understand any of that

The current series is still going - they're up to episode 17 in the states.. They often tease a major, earth shattering apocalyptic event on the following week's episode which usually turns out to be a damp squib.

Are we up to date with the US show at the moment then or a season behind?

We're up to date and I think we're only 2 episodes behind - I haven't seen this week's ones yet, but I think we're on episode 15.

Yeah think that's about right. It's only on once next week by the looks of it.

Truth is though that an excuse is all it was. Kimmie was desperate to not have to take part in the challenge (as she has been with a few now) and that was a nice, handy thing to be able to say. Most of the other contestants on the show are smokers and none of them ducked out of it (Justin was perfect in the challenge if I recall correctly; and he's a smoker).

The smoking annoys me too. Also they swear a lot in this show, even the women, and it sounds horrible. Contestants are getting more and more bitchy by the series. Dana I find cringeworthy particularly in the scenes on her own in the kicthen store room.

It was rather fantastic yes.

Just think yourself lucky it wasn't Kimmie or Tiffany that had won that reward...

It really irritates my wife when Dana does this! Shouting at the camera and almost smirking all the time!
While we're on the subject of the store room, how do they film those segments? Is it during service or at the end? Wouldn't have thought they'd have had time during service?
Anyway, Justin or Barbie to win now!

I love Dana, those shocked wide eyed looks that Barbie continually give really annoy me.

Same here, my teeth grind whenever they show her doing the wide-eyed look of shock.

Justin or Christina will win it I reckon.

Why would the smoking annoy you though?

I'm guessing you don't eat out at restaurants often then? Pretty much every chef I've ever known has been a heavy smoker, and usually an even heavier drinker.

Agree that Dana is really annoying. She shouts everything and looks smug all the time. I was sooo happy to see robin go, I've never been so annoyed by anybody in my life. Ramsay should've kept Brian in just for the entertainment, he was weird. Think its between Christina and Justin but Clemenza makes me laugh.

Hot looking? Christ, we must have different tastes.

Her shouting does my head in as well though.
