ATC Love to Chef Erika Davis

After such a strong showing earlier in the competition, it was nearly a shock to hear Gail tell Chef Erika Davis that she had lost this challenge. Her Lemon Poppy Seed Ice Cream with White Chocolate Pavé & Blackberry Crème Brûlé did get points from Gail for not being dark chocolate, but there were issues with the ice cream that just didn't work for the rest of the judges.

Chef Davis, you were a strong competitor the whole way through, and you displayed not only skills in the pastry department, you also seemed like a really nice, calm person and one of the few non-diva characters in the kitchen. We'll miss your calm demeanor and wish you much success in the future.

This post is only for positive comments about Chef Davis. If you have anything negative to say about her or her competitors, please do so here.

now that Erika is gone, I have no motivation to watch this show anymore. can't believe they eliminated her instead of Danielle.

Also, didn't the editing prove puzzling. the judges were trashing Zac's dish during the event and praising it to the heavens at judging. and vice versa for Erika.

I agree with lou. I really wanted Erika to win this. I've had the opportunity to try a couple of her desserts. She does great things with ice cream and herbs. I assume they used the editing to shock us with her elim. Also, "Team Diva" are REALLY becoming unlikable to me.
