Last night was the finale of Bravo's "Chef Academy," a show that started off pretty interesting and then lost me pretty fast. In fact, the only reason I stuck with it to the end was to see how Carissa from Charlotte fared. I'm happy to report that she graduated.
In fact, everyone graduated except for Suzanne, the sweet but brassy Orange County housewife. But then, last week's episode with the whole fish allergy drama, seemed like an exercise in breaking Suzanne down just so that someone would fail. I mean, Novelli Academy can't be considered a very legitimate cooking school if everyone passes, right? The problem is, this is television, and Suzanne was probably everyone's favorite character. I mean, student.
But back to Carissa.
