'MasterChef' Judge Graham Elliot: Suzy Picked Christian for His Talent, Despite His Arrogance

Graham Elliot is a world renowned chef and judge on Fox's 'MasterChef' who'll be guest blogging for AOL TV from time to time this season. Here are his thoughts on this week's episode ...
Here we are with the fantastic four!
This was a big big deal for us and it was important to show our last four that they are part of a worldwide phenomenon. This competition spans almost 30 countries, and we were confident that our American home cooks could impress the panel of international judges.
I'm not surprised Suzy picked Christian. She knows he can be arrogant but I think she has always respected his talent. It really is a battle of two different mindsets: on one hand you have the technical chefs who approach cooking as more of a craft, and on the other you have those who cook with more of an artistic touch.
That pantry was out of control. We spent a lot of time making sure we had ingredients that represented the country. There was lamb, beef, pork, lobster, chicken, spot prawns, duck and amazing produce. Nothing says USA like amazing product, and this selection was badass!
