So it pains me to say that Eddie bored me to death in the first episode.
Who says with a straight face: "My motto is: what would you do today if you knew you could not fail?" (Or something like that. The quote was just so silly I didn't bother to go back and check it.) It's funny he mentions not failing, because it strikes me as odd that he'd memorize a little line like this, knowing he'd be asked this question.
Would someone who's not afraid to fail recite a memorized, banal line like that? Can't a fearless person just speak from the heart?
And then his presentation at Butter was just redic, as the judges noted. "A recipe is a foundation, but your hands should create the symphony" ??????
I think Eddie must have thought these lines would come off as touching and powerful, but truthfully they just sounded like a reality show contestant memorizing things he thought people would want to hear.
Try again, Eddie!
