    Hey foodnetwork, get a better web designer. It's so hard to get any information where we can make comments. On that note; congrats on such a nice award. Chopped is a great show. I only issue is "girl" contestants seem to be judged tougher.

    Watching tonight's show…my god; how much money did Penny invest into your network. She is a poor sport, she has poor character; she is very classless; and if she becomes a representative food network's future….I'm out!

    Its sad that Penny cant seem to understand that she has no humility. And if she thought about it, she would have gone home first had Symon not forgotten the fried okra. Even the judges said his app was the best they tasted. I'd hate to be Penny's daughter. She is gonna grow up being classless like her mom.
