    My favorite show! The only one I watch religiously since a girl I went to high school was on 2 seasons ago. (Ariane) I fell in love with Carla and I'm rooting for her too. She's a great chef and she has the best personality (and hair) of all of the cheftestants.

    I was also rooting for Dale and Fabio as backup to Carla, but they got booted...

    I agree that Richard Blais is one of the best chefs..technically...but Carla's got my heart and my vote!

    Carla's hair looks way looser this season. Looking back at her first season, it appeared kinkier to me.

    Curl type appearance depends on both product and styling method, as well as weather. Carla's hair varies in its curliness even in this season's show.

    And whether kinky or curly, Carla rocks her look, her personality, and her wicked chef skillZ (yes with a capital Z!)!

    Go Carla, go Carla, go Carla... :love4:

    i think in her first season, she was strictly doing wash n gos. but this time i've noticed in some interviews she's wearing a wig/half wig, sometimes she's rocking a braid out, and other times it appears to be a wash n go. if i remember correctly, i think it's been a progression too. so it made me think that she had intended on just wearing the hair piece for the most part, then got tired of that, tried a few different things, and is just going back to wash n gos.
