Top Chef Finalist Marks a Year Since the Journey Began: It Was "Rocky" and "Frantic" - Bravo - via Bravotv

Things seemed to go south right off the bat, in her assessment. "I intended to spend this time memorizing some recipes I wasn't 100 percent on, except I forgot my recipe book, and I was too far gone to turn back." That made for a pretty long and nervous drive. "That nearly three and a half hour drive to Louisville, before I had to surrender my phone, was spent frantically texting my mom recipes to look up, screen shot, then send to me so I could do my best to cram," she remembered. "At that moment, I can’t exactly say I felt super confident about how far I could go, but I was still up to the challenge."

For her part, Chef Adrienne is having rather spicier pregnancy cravings. In a recent Instagram post showing herself enjoying a bowl of Szechuan fish stew in Chinatown, she wrote that the dish is something she considers "so crave-able!" It's also, "served lava hot with a half inch of chili oil on top PLUS a generous pile of raw garlic and ground Szechuan peppercorn to stir in as you eat."

But it took a second for Kelsey's victory to really sink in. "I mean, it was pretty shocking, I guess, at first. I was kind of like, 'OK, so what are we doing tomorrow?' Like, it took me a while to realize what had happened, I guess," Kelsey told The Daily Dish during an interview in New York City. "It felt great. It felt like my hard work had paid off, that the sacrifices were worth it, the struggles were worth it, and I was proud of the way it all ended. I was just proud that I won."

Fan Buzz

This is a travisty to the whole bravo network shows involving contestants and judging. If I watched Big Brother or any of the Real Housewives franchises, maybe I'd have a different take on this season. The ingredient could have made the dish better and was subsequently sent packing. Each week, the contestants are presented with a "quick-fire challege", which determines who has immunity from the main challenge for the week. You've taken suspense and controversy past commonsense and the words of your own judges.
