You know, I'm happy for Hung. It would have been nice for a chick to win, but Casey clearly fell apart during the final challenge and couldn't pull off the win. I think there could have almost been a draw between Hung and Dale because they're both fan-freaking-tastic, but I have no problem with Hung as Top Chef. He's awesome. He may be egomaniacal, dismissive, and somewhat self-centered, but he's not mean, he's not a bully, and he's not Ilan. In fact, there were even times earlier in the season where he was quite nice and helpful. Remember when he stopped Sara N. from over-buying her beef? And when he was really sad when Sandee got sent home? After reading at Amuse-Biatch about the horrific ordeal Hung's mother and brother have gone through with their restaurant, this is a nice thing for Hung's family. It could even save them.
With a big ol' chunk of confetti dandruff in her hair, Padma reminds us to tune in for the reunion show next week. Because this is the season THAT WOULDN'T DIE!
