    I am so sick and tired of watching these shows where all the chefs think that they're crap doesn't stink. They're just as human as everyone else but they act like they're the only chefs in the whole world I mean really??? if they go back and watch how ridiculous they actually look they would probably not be chefs anymore because they make fools out of themselves and it's so hilarious to watch and I hope they watch after their season is over to see how foolish they actually looked.
