Top Chef has just started and already, I’m severely irritated…no, not by Ashley, I’ll get to her in a moment, but by those annoying Vitagglio brothers…jeeez!…you are competing, but you’re brothers, I get it!…move on!
Okay, back to cheftestant/chefbian Ashley Merriman…the elimination challenge in episode 2 involved catering a bachelor and bachelorette party–which ended up being dumb, because both parties were all together–well, Ashley immediately gets some ill feelings since she’s gay and she can’t legally get married…yep, I know…and boy did the producers run with it…you see her hanging out with the other contestants, including fellow lesbian contestant Preety, and she again, complains…Preety revealed she has been in a 13 year relationship, she understands…again, can we move on????
I like Ashley, although she almost screwed up and got sent home, but there’s a time and a place for politics…Top Chef is about cooking, and yes, you will see other scenarios, after all, it’s a reality show…let’s not make that reality all about the contestants’ sexual preferences…
Hang in there Ashley, Preety, and Ash–he’s awesome–and kick some ass!
