Has anybody been watching this series on Food Network?

I just saw the repeat of last week's episode last night. It's down to the final two in one last Iron Chef battle to decide who gets the job.

I believe Flay, Morimoto, Cora, and Symon are also judges for this battle.

Looks to be good.

I have. I can't actually decide who I like better. Both those guys were my favorites from the beginning. In the end, I think Garces will win out.

The Iron Chefs were judges for last season's too. Symon was my pick from that, and I really like him. I miss Batali, though.

I really liked Appleman, as much for his dickish attitude as anything. Guy had an ego the size of king kong.

I can't help but feel that they're trying to fill a niche in their programming with these two selections. A hispanic guy and an indian guy. Those are two culinary points of view that aren't currently covered on Iron Chef (though Flay is close to hispanic with his cuisine). Appleman and Freitag (my other favorite chef) were too close to what they already have on the show.

What else has Freitag been in? I remember seeing her from somewhere? Has she judged on Chopped?

She's competed on Iron Chef before. Against Kat Cora, I believe.

yes. and she's a total cunt about it. it was very pleasing to see her get a taste of her own medicine.

Cat Cora is already a specialist of Mediterranean cuisine.

Truthfully, I'd like to see them pick Chef Mehta. While he does Indian cuisine, he's clearly more than capable at French cuisine, too. They haven't had a French cuisine chef on there since Wolfgang Puck, and that was before the show even started.
