    I think they applauded her for her pie was significant. Ramsay was trying to make the point her lack of self confidence was only doing her a disservice for advancing people with disabilities. She really did have the best pie crust, even if it didn’t look completely perfect. She deserved to win, perhaps when one looks at her “even Steven” approach that Joe Bastianich praised on his blog. The season was riveting though, to say the least. I started having my Dish coworker over to watch since he introduced me to the show and we made a big event out of the finale. Instead of the commercial breaks, we used the Auto Hop on my PrimeTime Anytime recordings to watch commercial free, and then took food breaks. Everything took an hour anyway, but we enjoyed the time we would have been watching commercials by loading our plates!

      On the other hand, and this is perhaps a more eloquent way of saying what I meant – I don’t necessarily think it’s fair to put the advancement of those of us with disabilities on her shoulders. All we can ever do is our best, and frequently, we get placed on pedestals when we do something well.

      That being said, I look up to her and the season was fantastic! She clearly deserved all the praise that she received.
