Carla or Fabio, nice as they are, just haven't been pulling it together.
Hooty-hoo is bound to go!
Ariane, Carla, Leah or Jamie. I think my top five picks are Radika Hosea, Stefan, Fabio and Jeff. We'll see how it all works out!
I think Carla and Jeff are the most likely to go.
If it came down to talent alone I'd say Carla or Radhka, but isn't this around the part of the season when one of the real contenders gets the shaft, especially when there is a team challenge? Stefan seems particularly vulnerable in the group challenges, b/c you know he is going to put himself on the line by insisting on making "executive" decisions for his team (whether they want them or not). The previews suggest that Carla, Jamie and Stefan are on one team. So maybe the final 9 will break up into groups of 3? If so, it will be difficult to predict who stays and who goes, since it will come down to which team succeeds and which one flops. Both Jeff and Hosea look like they may be in trouble in the preview, as well as Jaimie and Stefan (butting heads). Hope all four stay, and the fabulous Fabio.
Carla would seem the obvious but I agree, the obvious person isn't going to go right now. Ariane isn't going anywhere--she has hit her stride and she knows how to be in the top now. She is obviously excellent with proteins and this is probably enought to keep her in for perhaps a very long time. Jamie is so up and down I think she may be the one this time. Fabio will skate by. Leah hasn't made a big impression and Tom doesn't like Jeff's style so those two may be in trouble. Radika is another one who knows how to 'not lose'.
Apparently all alone in hootie-hoo wilderness, I don't think Carla is the most obvious pick to go.I'm leaning toward Jeff, Ariane or Radhika. If I had to pick just one, it would be Radhika.
I think its time for the surprise elimination. Someone nobody expects gets the boot, Hosea maybe. cb
