Did not see a thread for this so thought I would start one, as this is one of my favorite summer shows. I was delighted to discover that they had ditched all of the open audition rounds and got right down to business in the MasterChef kitchen. This is a lesson that American Idol should have learned years ago. Good opener overall, I thought. Too early to pick any favorites, but I'm already rooting for that loudmouth from Malibu to turn in his apron.
