"I don't understand, ya'll!"

ZOMG, ya'll! Did you watch last night's Super Bowl edition of Top Chef? Poor Jeff McInnis got the boot. We feel for him. The chef from the DiLido Beach Club at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach couldn't wrap his head around why the judges preferred season 2's Josie Smith-Malave's warm ceviche over his rock shrimp ceviche with sangria ice.

In the end, it came down to cocky Finnish chef Stephan, doesn't-like-acid-with-his-cheese Fabio and McInnis, who looked like he was about to cry, ya'll. How sad! But that cold-hearted (but sexy) bitch, Padma, told McInnis to "pack his knives, and go home."

We feel so much for him that we are offering to come down to the DiLido Beach Club and judge for ourselves whether he should have gone home. How about it McInnis?

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
