Bravo's Top Chef . Team Marcel
[Welcome to a whole new series of posts you'll see during this brand new viewing year. It's titled Mr. GuyTVBlog's Teams. Let me explain.
Everyone within the realm of pop culture seems to always pick a "team". By this I mean people, meaning you and I, choose a person's side. Let's take Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, you're either on Brad's team or Jenn's team... or maybe you're on team "I could give a shit". My point is you end up picking a "team".
Got it? Let's begin with Mr. GuyTVBlog's first official team.]
Team Marcel: Marcel Vigneron has been cast by the show, Top Chef, as this season's villain. Okay, he kinda cast himself as the villain. Anyways, he's got this persona that he's above everyone else and he knows everything there is to know... and then some.
Regardless of his pompous actions on the show this man has got feelings just like the rest of us. Yes he was malicious during the first batch of episodes but as the season progressed the other chefs, who consider themselves to be above Marcel, starting to act a bit cunty [with a dash of asshole] towards Marcel and only Marcel.
In my opinion the other chefs have now become what I like to call this season's new multiple headed villain thus making Marcel an almost guarantee finalist in the season finale. Those cooking idiots, don't they know that when they all gang up on the one villain of the show that they make him the underdog thus giving him a guaranteed finalist with strong possiblity of making it the season finale episode. Everyone else becomes expendable.
And speaking of expendable people, let's chat about another bottom feeder chef... Betty! The first few episodes she was portrayed as a darling and a favorite to win but then as the episodes featuring the story arc of "Let's Kill Marcel's Ego" continued to air, well, Betty just became a kind hearted Cunt who created drama from anything Marcel said or didn't say. She was eliminated this past week from the competition even though she felt Marcel "deserved" to go. Whatever, get the fuck out of the kitchen.
