I am blogging through blurred vision right now because I am in hysterics and crying my eyes out. Ashley Merriman is gone! Noooo! She was eliminated from Top Chef tonight. (Hey, don't judge me. I get really into my TV.) She was my underdog. She was cooking against really talented chefs, but there was just something special about her. She knows how to cook, but she also has integrity. She would never throw her competitors under the bus. I have been rooting for her since the beginning of the season. But she got cut tonight!
She made salty gnocci and undercooked prawns. I was really worried. The other team at the bottom had my favorite Michael Voltaggio. He has been doing so well all season, so I knew he was probably safe. So that meant Ashley was in danger. I was in denial the last few minutes of the show. I kept chanting, "No, not Ashley." Then when it came down to Ashley and Michael, I starting wailing. There was no way it was going to end well...for me. Then when she was eliminated, I was blubbering and hiccuping. I am not proud of it, but WAHHH!
I am going to miss Ashley. I adore her.
