‘Top Chef’: Can I have some attitude with that?

Another season, another bitter disappointment with the finale set up by “Top Chef.” That Lisa is still in contention chaps my hide. I’ve watched a lot of reality and she is easily the most vile, bitter, unpleasant contestant I can recall. And her skills seem marginal compared with the others. Can you say peanut butter mashed potatoes?

CrankyThe fact that she stayed, over the lovely and talented Antonia, is hard to accept. I am appeased by the fact that her opponents, Stephanie and Richard, are the cream of this season’s crop.

As much as I love Bravo’s reality stalwarts, “Top Chef” and “Project Runway,” I am never satisfied with the contestants that eventually win or even the ones who move on to the finals. But at least some of the other “villains” (Hung, Marcel, Santino, Christian) had the talent to back up their bravado and/or personality flaws.

Granted, the finale is still to come, and Lisa just barely has a shot at the title, but anything can happen. Lisa just better not win.

(Guess which one is Lisa in the photo above.)
