It certainly entertains me. I personally enjoyed Sam Choy this past week. I am glad that Cat is fighting like a regular and it seems like Morimoto is the once in a while guy.
I think I would love to see some more out there secret items. Hamburger and chicken just don't cut it for me. How about Uzu? Rattlesnake? Cactus? Spam? Liver? something that would make them think on their toes.
I also will continue to argue that the Challenge should be able to pick his opponent. That was always a fun element of surprise. Although I think once the cooking starts Alton and Kevin do a great job of commentating.
