Bonus Caption This: Coulda Been a Contenda

By: Debra Puchalla

Brad, Brianna, Serena and Paul returned last week, brought back after their ouster to aid Aarti, Aria, Herb and Tom. Would you be glad and gracious or bummed and baneful? Ya think they'll watch the finale Sunday? Wish any of them made it to the finale? Vote now for your favorite from among all the chefs--the fan favorite will get a web series. Then caption the picture. My riffs on what they're thinking, left to right: "Where's my hat?" "What? The party can't be over--I'm here." "I swear I will slow it down." "Bobby, I like your tie, honey..."

What do you think's going on here?
