Spoilers if you haven't seen the episode yet!
Well, two of my 3 favorites made it to the final three, plus Yvan, who was the best of Giada's group. I was most worried about Justin, because Martie wasn't getting a loser's edit. They milked that "after the break" for all it was worth, with tears in Alton's eyes and everything. I fist pumped when they said that Justin was in, and I didn't even care that they let Martie stick around.
I like Justin a lot. I thought his pilot was great--like Good Eats 2.0! All the talk about freaky food (fried fish bones!) had me worried. Not interested in that at all. However, if he pulls off more of what he did in the pilot, I'm there.
Yvan surprised me. I actually think his show would be the most relevant to my life, and I might watch it if it ends up like the pilot.
Michele's show was nice. Her clam dish looked amazing, but I'm allergic to shellfish, which seems to be her niche, so it's unlikely I'd watch her, as much as I really do like her.
Martie was Martie. I'm not particularly fond of her, and I'm not a party thrower, so I wouldn't watch based on her show premise, either.
End result, I threw half my votes at Justin and the other half at Yvan. Having seen the voting trends the past few weeks, I think Justin has it in the bag, but I could be wrong.
I would love for them to give Emily a consolation show, too. I think I'd watch her.
