Vacation Over: Back to Live Tweeting 'Top Chef'

Last Wednesday, my plan to resume live Tweeting of "Top Chef: Las Vegas" (after a rerun episode the week before) was thwarted by my indulgent eating trip to New Orleans. I had my mouth full, and it's just not polite to eat and Tweet. I'm sure you'll forgive me.

What a week I missed: a win by Jennifer (aka Saucy), and a close call for Michael Voltaggio (aka BroVo West). Will he redeem himself this week? Something tells me he will.

As always, I'll be doing all this from the WaPoFoodLive Twitter feed, or you can follow along in this space as the night progresses (or, of course, catch up afterward).

# Please pack your Ash and go.

# Kiss his Ash goodbye.

# @cksieloff really? which one? in reply to cksieloff

# Squiggy's revisionist history: he adds the f-bomb where none existed in his "you're not my mom" argument w/Old Bay.

# 42 pounds of bulimia. RT @TheStew: RT @shelleyryan All I want to know is what is the weight limit to be a Wine Angel?

# Ash's ash is grash.

# Did Ash just refer to the room as @TheStew? Wow.

# Old Bay thinks "there's something really luscious about a thin piece of meat." WTF?

# As a 43-year-old, I want to strangle whoever just referred to Old Bay as grandma, even though she sorta is.

# Friar Scruffy nails it. Saw that one coming. He referenced the friggin' hazelnut trees, after all.

# I wish Toby were deep in the funky, hairy armpit of France right now.

# ZZZZZZZZZZ RT @lillyj: Yawn. This ep of is wicked boring. Even pork porn isn't getting me up.

# BroVo in the top with Saucy and Friar Scruffy. No Squiggy?

# Sword? Anyone? RT @TheStew: This episode could use a few random acts of Ron voodoo.

# She's guilty. RT @TheStew: The wine @ChefRobinL paired it with was a 2005 Mischief & Mayhem. Also known as "assault & battery."

# RT @TheStew: The event they're cooking for is called "Pigs & Pinot." Otherwise known as "The Real Housewives of New Jersey."

# Old Bay's dish is a hot cherry mess.

# Saucy's looking good tonight -- a second win in a row? Nah, Friar Scruffy's got this one.

# Friar Scruffy's dish is smartly edited. That's all. No snark.

# Lots of cherries tonight, naturally. Even I know that.

# Uh-oh. Maybe I should've nicknamed the BroVos Cain and Abel.

# Ash sets himself up to go home by announcing that he is finally cooking HIS food. What happens when it sucks?

# Ooh, BroVo smack talk.

# BroVo East, time to find the pressure cooker.

# Old Bay is a better nickname than Rotten Robin, although you can sing the latter like a song.

# Old Bay is rubbing people the wrong way, like a dry rub against the grain.

# Mike Isabella is such a delicate flower.

# What? They're buying parts at WF and not starting with the whole animal? FAIL

# Laurine says pinot is her favorite red wine? She and every foodie on the planet.

# Oh, Lord, it's the friggin' wine angels. Of course.

# It's the everything-but-the-squeal challenge. What took them so long?

# Old Bay it is! RT @TheStew: @WaPoFoodLive Astrological sign for cancer is the crab. I smell a Chesapeake Bay flavored nickname...about 1 hour ago from HootSuite

# Robin's parfait looks a little like Fancy Feast.

# Kevin (aka Friar Scruffy) is having himself some Funyun.

# I sense a high level of BroVoltage tonight. Sparks will fly?

# Product placement overload this week. "Your Proctor and Gamble quickfire starts now."

# Charlie Palmer in the house: Advantage, BroVo.

# Which personal story, Squiggy's or Robin's (I want to nickname her Cancer, but just can't), means they'll go home tonight?

# and we're off!

# T minus 10 and counting, until a new episode of , ripe for the Tweeting.

This is embarrassing. Honestly, WaPo, you can't do better than this? And does this guy love himself or what? Go back on vacation.
