It sort of annoys that those are the ones chosen, because I've found that the most talented ones are also the ones who don't take a lot of room, if you know what I mean? Which means that, again, reality is just reality and not an accurate depiction. Which would have been nice to see.

I was rather curious for a moment...then it dawned on me & I'm REALLY glad I didn't wake up the kids or hubby with my guffaw.
I think the only comment I took exception to was made by one of the chefs who was up for elimination when he said something about the palate's of the diners were not sophisticated - I LOL'ed at that one - pretty much all of them have eaten across the country & globe at places from lunch trucks to fast-foods to "Look what I made!" from their kids/grandkids to five-star restaurants. It came across to me that he had sour grapes about the chance of being eliminated.
That was funny, but I watch a lot of these chef competitions and believe me, chefs have HUGE egos :blulaugh:
Actually, I find we're not really that egotistical. I truly believe the people they choose could've done anything else and they also would have had egos - it's their personality, not because of their profession. You honestly cannot be egotistical and work in a kitchen, too much depends on how you work together, because no one works alone. You're too dependant on the others.
They do however, have a very keenly developed gutter-humor. And we can all be brash, just because that's the nature of the business.
Oh, I wasn't talking about your average chef out there, I'm talking about some of the ones I see on these competition shows. Especially Top Chef and Chopped. And I'm sorry, I should have said SOME have huge egos. Certainly not all, that's not true at all. Some of them though are really egotistical.
I also feel that most reality competition stars seem to have huge egos, no matter which genre it's in. Sadly. Because I hate egos, and thus I don't watch.
