the Bocuse d'Or is for well established chef's I think

 

it a shame that Great British Menu was never picked up by PBS-US or any other outside the GB networks.

Yeah, most of the really weak competitors were in early seasons. I will however, always remember THIS incident from Season 9.

 

And agreed that appearing on the show opens up a world of opportunity, even the culinary student from Season 1 has gone on to fame and fortune.

That goofball's immediate elimination after mauling a primal cut was the only good thing about Season 9!

I think I've spotted a few in this round.  And surprisingly, when faced with a quickfire elimination, George chose none of them.  Instead, George handpicks the guy who would send him home. #Badmove

But George has not seen any of the others actually cook anything yet.  He only knows what he has seen of Gregory's skills at filleting mackerel, which was poor and that he had lied when he (Gregory) claimed that he was good at fish.  You have now seen how the others cooked in the elimination challenge.  He (George) never did.  He may or may not have seen any of the others (including Gregory) in actual action in the kitchens of their respective restaurants and besides, doing things in the TC kitchen would be "new/alien" to any of them so how would one judge that one particular person could adapt immediately or not...

 

Besides, he had every right to be angry at Gregory, who sort-of bullied/shamed him into doing the clams even after he (George) had *said* he was bad at shucking clams.
