Posted By on Thu, Nov 24, 2011 at 10:53 AM

On this week's "Top Chef," a cowboy love story, starring Richie and Chris J.

Ya know it could be like this, just like this always. You should know though, my stomach has a lot of issues with spicy foods.
  • "Ya know it could be like this, just like this always. You should know though, my stomach has a lot of issues with spicy foods."

When Richie ends up on the bottom, Chris J. walks over and massages his shoulders. "I'm good," says Richie, and Chris leans over and whispers into his ear, "Emotions kill." (Other chefs look around, shift uncomfortably in their seats.)

SPOILER

Later on, after Richie's eliminated, he runs into the arms of Chris J., bawling, "I didn't show them what Moto can do!" "It's OK, I love you," says Chris J. It's very moving, like when Frodo and Sam are on the edge of Mount Doom.

Hey, it's Thanksgiving! How about a list of all the things cheftestants and judges are thankful for.

The judges: They're thankful for being assholes.

Chris C. is thankful for Padma on a horse: "Seeing Padma on a horse is like looking at Fabio on the cover of one of his romance novels. It's pure beauty." It's funny how some people get pure beauty confused with gross.

Beverly is thankful for tears.

Chuy is thankful for the toy rocking horse that somehow ended up in a house for adults on a reality TV show.

The old lady judge is thankful for acid.

Chris J. is thankful for gigantic stars.

Everyone else is thankful for not getting kicked off. Except for Richie, who got kicked off, twice if you count last chance kitchen. Which we do.

OK folks, don't forget to leave your picks for the top 3 in the comments below. PRIZES are at stake!

Everyone's still in the game. Here's where we stand:
Nom Nom Nom: Sarah, Nyesha, and Chris C.
totm: Edward, Whitney, Chris J
JMF: Whitney, Lindsay and Chuy
