Top Chef 5: Team Rainbow?
Of course, he wasn't the only fruit in the basket. It didn't take long before the other queers, Jamie (a sassy lesbian from NY) and Patrick ( a young buck chaser still in Culinary school) got together with Richard to form "TEAM RAINBOW."
Team Rainbow didn't work out to well it seemed, as Jamie and Richard were pitted against each other in the elimination round. Patrick was put against my personal fave Danny, who was in it to win it.
In the end Patrick went home for not being able to cook noodles. He did get a loverly parting gift from Richard, though:
Back to Danny.
Danny is perfect, just look at his shirt. I love his get it done attitude and he had no problem standing up to the sassy Europeans over what a vinaigrette is.
Cooking wise, Danny can dice a mean apple brunoise, breezing past the rest of the group in the first challenge. In the elimination round, he made a dish that "Wolfgang Puck made a thousand times over" and left it a bit too wet. However, it was just enough to win over Patrick's poor knowledge.
The overall winner was Stefan, a sort of handsome Fin who took both quickfire and Elimination challenges to the bank. In Top Chef history, this sorta means Stefan will win the whole thing, but I'm gonna keep watching cause Richard and Danny are so hot. I'm still waiting for Danny's gratuitous furry belly shot.
