Ripert Defends Jamie Elimination
It looked like pure producer interference to me, but Eric Ripert defends Jamie's elimination. In a Bravo Q & A, Ripert is asked if Jamie's over-salted celery was really the "worst culinary crime that day." His answer?
Oh Eric, I want to believe that Jamie's elimination was true and just, I really do. But I just don't know that another week of staged Leah-botching-fish/Hosea-reacting shots are really for the best. I just don't know.
