My wife and I watched it last night. when Booby won, we both said at the same time, "That's the last one of those I'm watching"!!! LOL! It had to be rigged!!!

BTW, This is an unfair and unballanced poll since it has one "Fair" choice and 6 "Rigged" choices ~ Butt, I still voted!!

There was only one "Fair" choice.... because it was obviously rigged. Just wanted to see what people would pick.

Glenn, those first ones were specials.
The new ones are the start of the series.

And yes, all the specials were 'fixed'.

Good point, Glenn. Emeril Live is like a cross between a cooking show, the Tonight Show and a Ronco Infomercial!! If I had to watch one or the other, I would watch Bobby Flay. Fortunately, I don't, so I don't watch either!

I think there was another one with Wolfgang Puck as well. My Sunday paper has a weekly feature of his. It is a brief article and a recipe.

I don't think I've actually tried one yet though they usually look very appealing, but I've learned lots and I enjoy the feature.

Anyway, he talked about his win in the Iron Chef show that was done in USA.

Glenn, Flay beat Morimoto (Exec Chef of Nobu) when he did the tabletop dance! Everyone seems to hate this Flay but I find him entertaining...if he wasn't good, he wouldn't own 2 restaurant/bars in NYC and have 28 TV shows and date a hottie like Stephaine March...well, to bad on the last part, but he is successful...you can't argue that!
