    I think the judges are blind and don't know how to taste food. Sanchez guy does he even know how to cook? and that big fat Jeff guy that was a contestant he deserves to go home because he is a big loser an extremely bossy for no reason because he can't cook worth a crap! I think Gordon Ramsay and Ron Sanchez need to get glasses so they can actually pick the right people!!!!!!!!!!!
