ATC Love to Chefs CJ Jacobsen and Tyler Wiard

For Chef Jacobsen, his second chance at the Top Chef crown was short-lived. In this case, his strategy to underthink his pickle dish backfired. While pickles go great with burgers, the obvious choice did not impress the judges, and the mistakes made in its creation only made matters worse. It's unfortunate, because we've all seen him do better work.

Chef Wiard may have been right to take the pickle in a more creative direction, but he didn't want to argue with his partner. How many times have we seen chefs go down for going with the flow and not standing their ground? It's hard to say if his ideas would have worked better, but the lack of creativity was definitely a big negative with the judges.
