ooh you had to ask that.
I'm not upset about Michael V. being the winner. Any one of the final four would have deserved to win based on their merits and their performance throughout the season. So, I went into this finale with no worries about another Hosea-debacle.
BUt it made me sick the way they said "Kevin... you are NOT Top Chef". I don't think they'd ever done it like that on any other season (I didn't watch seasons 1-3), but the way they made it seem like he had won for a split second and then to just yank it away from him like that... You saw how he left immediately and looked like he had the wiind knocked out of him and was about to cry. I WAS rooting for Kevin but if even they had done that to one of the brothers, I would have thought the same thing. I'm not sure if I'll be able to bring myself to watch the show next season. At least they feed those cast members buckets of champagne.
Having said all that, I'm sure Kevin is over it by now and will soon be laughing all the way to the bank. He won most of the high-stakes quick-fires and gets to be in that fancy-schmancy Bocuse D'or thing or whatever it's called.
