Top Chef Speculation

Are we being set up for an Ed victory? I only started watching the show last season, and I don’t watch reality shows in general, so I don’t claim to have any particular insight as to how these things are edited. But:

  1. They do seem to be flogging his supposed romance/flirtation/whatever with Tiffany;
  2. They spent an awful lot of time on the “pea puree” controversy; and
  3. Generally speaking he seems to be getting screen time far in excess of his apparent merit or personality.

It’s not at all clear to me why they would be doing this except to try to force us to have an opinion — any opinion whatsoever, really (see #3 above) — of Ed as a contestant and potential winner.
