Prodouced by SJP a Bravo show goes out to find artist to compete.
The prize is a show at the Brooklyn Museum.
The breakout for me is this Brotha named Abdi, he's kind of a nerdy dude, but his work is awesome.
When you click the link, scroll to the bottom and it's the third one over.
check it out, who do you dig?
^^^Kenny is a chef down there? WHAT!!!
Get your backside to thee.
Yeah, you got me exactly. I was yelling at the tv screen the whole time.
He saw that shit coming, even Colichio (that judge), but they wanted to front like it wasn't pre-meditated.
That was some bullshit. It was sooo suspect they all nominated that Puerto-Rican guy to win, despite the fact that he's never won ANY quickfire, and he's consistantly had the WORST dishes. Matter of fact, he's been close to going home several times.
Home-girl that got elimated (I think her name was Tamesha) got sonned. I don't wanna say because she's 24, that she was naive (in letting Angelo, a more experienced adult, play with her emotions). But, hey... she learned. Its a competition. Not a dating show.
Kenny has rigorously been on his A-game. It bugged me out to hear some new judge criticize his skill.
I told myself (at the start of the frist ep) that if Ken gets kicked off, I'm done with the show.
Dude was a beast from the moment cameras started rolling. It'd be shocking as HELL if he & Angelo aren't neck'n'neck by the last final challenge.
... Fuckin Miles, man. Dude is a master manipulator. As soon as he suggested that Jaclyn get naked (again), I had the feeling it was a setup. If it failed, she'd be pegged as one who uses her beauty as a crutch. But if it worked ... eh, it did work, and for obvious reasons. I don't think Miles would've been a winner tonight if Jaclyn hadn't "taken one for the team" with the nudity overkill.
I think Peregrine set Mark up as well... she was being clammy for a reason. He was the one stuck out on a limb, and he paid the price for falling for the okey-doke.
I think Abdi's dried up. A comeback isn't impossible, but I'm not expecting one.
I think Alex (that ol' fucker) stole the puree.
yup, that Alex definitely stole the pea puree.
I gotta be totally honest with you guys, I'm just about done with the whole fuckin show. I don't think Mark deserved to be eliminated. Sure, he could've dug a bit deeper and not been so "safe". But, whats NOT safe? Fingering your vagina, standing up, and then painting it?
Ladies & gents, that aint art. Its P-O-R-N.
I'm sick of these White, upper-class, yuppie, pretentious critics (who self-proclaim themselves as the taste-makers of art).
Don't get me wrong,... Abdi fucked up. Big time. I think its time for him to go home, and maybe he'll find himself.
Those aesthetically-elitist/SNOBBISH judges are full of shit. Miles throws globs of tar on a plank of wood, and stands it next to a pornographic cartoon,... then voila! Its art.
He punches a hole in a wall,... its a "deconstruction of a dumb idea".
No, how about its just a dumb idea?!!
Meanwhile, Mark gets ridiculed for being too "obvious" and "literal".
Nobody's piece was that great, I felt. But, how is a woman masterbating... deep art?
Jackie is trying to use her nude self AGAIN, and then took the picture back @ the house which is off of studio time. So it would be against the rules. But she admitted it to everyone and asked if anyone minded. Everyone said YES! LOL.
Abdi is getting good feedback from Simone, it's a good portrait but not nature.
Miles is talking crap and his see saw doesnt have anything to do with nature either. I hope he gets cut. I just don't want him or Jackie winning.
GO TEAM TIFFANY! She cleaned up tonight! She had immunity and still nailed it. Could it be? Could a BLACK WOMAN be in the finals???
Alex choked all day long which to me screams that he didn't make that pea puree. He can barely cook! He was on the chopping block and Steve got sent home instead of him. Alex is such a weasel.
ABDI CAME BACK!!!
He has arisen from his funk. I'm very happy for him. Really & truly.
That piece he drew of himself (using the dirt/soil) was AMAZING. Now, THATS more like it. So spiritual. Its very captivating.
I wasn't impressed at all with anybody else's work. The only thing I would've changed was that Peregrine went home with Jaclyn (instead of that other girl, who made the weird alien-like coconut thing).
All I can do is laugh at this point. I mean, Miles wreaks of that pretentious "so abstract its definitive"/ "so subtle, its meaningful" conceit. The british guy (I forgot his name) said to him "well, its very elaborate. A very interesting way of making cheesecake". LOL
I'm not saying he's the worst artist. But, where's the heart & soul? Where's the emotion?
I love how Abdi made a statement. Dare to make a fucking STATEMENT.
I understand that what Miles does is what usually sells at art galleries in Soho & Chelsea, but I don't like none of that shit either. I can't connect with it. I want somethng thats got SOUL. Or ateast something that will grab my interest long enough to make me want to explore it more.
*okay, on to Top Chef"
Tiffany is KILLIN 'EM.
Sista is doin the damn thang!!!
TWO wins in ONE EPISODE?!?!?!?
Oh, she bad... she BAD!!!
and to see Angelo get pissed,...I love it. I love it. But, its a shame though that Kenny is stuck in the middle. Not good enough to be top 3, but not awful to the point of ending up in the bottom.
I wonder if he's really stepping outside of himself. Because thats the same problem I see with Angelo. The prick keeps making the same shit. Sure, it may taste good. But, he's playing it safe,...and thats boring.
TIFFANY stepped outside of her comfort zone and took a chance,...did something totally unexpected of her, and ripped her competition a new asshole.
