And so -- along with Cory, Kevin, and Jeffrey -- Nipa became the latest finalist to be eliminated this past Sunday.
I have a feeling Nipa's application for the show included a reference to "having no idea how to handle squid" or any seafood, for that matter.
Note to potential reality show contestants: Expect everything you list on your application in the "I hate the following...," "I know nothing about...," "I will instantly die if I come into contact with..." categories to show up in some way during the show.
I loved the look on a very nicely done-up Tyler Florence's face when Nipa said to "take the eye off" from the squid.
I kinda liked her Bollywood dance lesson, but the Coast Guard men weren't feeling it. It was a rare, almost happy looking moment for Nipa.
So Nipa's gone. Let's be honest: I don't think she could handle a show of her own. I'm not saying there couldn't be an Indian-focused cooking show on the network--there could. I just don't think Nipa could be its host.
