    The judging of this show seriously needs to be evaluated. Grill ‘Em All almost lost every show, was nearly last in the money every time, but NomNom won every show, made their $1000 and left the scene before GEA even counted their money…. And NomNom looses the show???

    I’ll never watch this show again if something doesn’t change. Tyler, you should be ashamed that you are associated with such a farce! I always thought you were a better celebrity than that. Guess I was wrong.

  2. Sara Jane says:

    I agree with Mike! I think there is something going on here. Like they made sure Grill “Em All won cause they thought it would make better TV. That is crap!

  3. Tony says:

    I also agree with Mike…. maaan Nom Nom lost…. I was really hoping for the asains to win…. o wells atleast they won on the other episodes. maybe this episode was just unlucky for them….. Good job Nom Nom… Thanx for representing asain all around!

    @ Mike, Sara Jane, and Tony: Nom nom got into a car accident. They hit another car, so that cost them the race.
