Padma Lakshmi, Top Chef

With no fancy celebrity guests this week, the grouchy, knife-wielding Top Chef contestants nearly turned on each other. Or on Stefan, mainly, because the dude annoys.

Still, they focused their energies enough to prepare grub for judge Gail Simmons' bridal shower, and in a rare show of sportsmanship worked together to help one of the groups get its food plated in time for host Padma Lakshmi and the assorted guests.

In the end, though, the judges were the grumpy ones, and they vented their frustration with dishes of do-it-yourself sushi and barbecue sauce by sending another chef home.
