Who you see as a villain or a hero reveals too much about who you are as a person and if there's one thing you want to reveal on a first date, it's that.
Me, for instance, I love Howie, the squat fireplug of a Miamian who speaks with the flattened vowels of a New Jerseyite though he was born and bred in Florida.
"I'm here to watch Top Chef, not make friends."So who is my villain? But that mohawk, those clothes, that taste, those candles!
No multicolored octopus lamps and fake leopard skin rugs and beads instead of doorways and tons of asymmetrical mirrors.
But as Howie says, he didn't come to Top Chef to make friends.
I love how he wears a bald cap as a sign of empathy with Colicchio.
