    I love watching chopped. It is absolutely my favorite program.
    Watching the show this afternoon however, sort of upset me. Aron Sanchez corrected one of the contestants mispronunciation of the Spanish word tomatillo. I know he is very proud of his heritage as I am proud of my Polish heritage but I would not be offended if Chef Aron mispronounced kielbasa or kiszka or even pierogi. Chef Aron needs to lighten up.

    I enjoy Alex's comments. I think she is genuine. I also like Geoffrey Z. He doesn't tolerate misbehaving chefs so well, and I love him for it. But I have often wondered how do the judges come to such a quick "chopped" decision without any consensual deliberating.

    I have been watching Chopped for many years now and have loved it!
    Today I was watching a recorded episode called Frankly Frantic and their was a super inspirational Chef named Kristin.
    I was very disappointed in the judges during this episode. They seemed to be threatened by her rapid success and I felt they came down on her. It was disheartening and upsetting. To me it was as upsetting as it was for Scott Conant to see Kristin ‘mishandle’ the fish she cooked. I have always known the judges to be supportive and encouraging. They seemed to come down on her for being successful so quickly in her industry.
    In the end she won . . . which to me continues to prove that you can be a natural at something and successful quickly when you find what you love to do and go for it.

      I agree. I felt that the judge with the glasses (im terrible with names) was not only threatened the most also became biasedd due to the story of Garrets kid. This is the first I've felt that way bout the judges.
      they are making a bad example of for future chiefs or any profession, if you know and your great at what you do than you're bound to jump ahead while others still walk!

      I, too, have watched the show for years and love it. But I distinctly remember the show you are talking about and I was very taken aback by Scott’s anger. It felt very overdone and misplaced, almost bordering on bullying. I felt genuinely sorry for the contestant and embarrassed by Scott. His reaction felt more appropriate for a context in which someone had just flung a personal insult or done something extremely reckless/dangerous in the kitchen. It just seemed odd, childish, and WAY too harsh… just mean and extremely unprofessional. I’ve had trouble seeing Scott the same since that incident. Ridiculous. Totally uncalled for and not at all appropriate for a celebrity chef like himself.

    I like "Chopped" but the moment I see Guarnaschelli and/or Freitag on the panel, I turn it off. They look at the food and raise it to their mouths and glaring up at the chefs as though the food was excrement, souramd angry; the disgusting faces they make are rude and unnecessary. I absolutely despise watching them. And the Indian woman is hardy any better.

    WHY do they look so disgusted? If they don't want to be there, find someone else who is a bit more pleasant and expects a good product before raising their noses, narrowing their eyes and making those stupid faces. Get over yourselves, ladies!

    Love the show! I especially like when you all have amateur chefs compete. I would love to see a series where the Chopped panel of judges go up against each other!
