im pretty much a couch patatoe on the weekends and i think i have seen almost every episode of throwdown. ive seen pizza, BBQ pork, cheese steak, fish & chips, meatloaf, breakfast, cheescake, cocktails and just now fried chicken - probably a few more, im pretty sure he is a big O for. he always goes up against a chef that cooks the throwdown item in the classical style and he always has to throw in some ancho chili powder or some other spice to set his apart. i really think its hurting him in the long run, he should just stick to the classic style for the given showdown and he may be able to pull one off or is it that he is just going up against the best of the best for that given dish? i really can't put a finger on it. it sucks being a bobby flay fan, go SHARKS...
