Tough break for Ramon Bojorquez, the chef originally from Rio Rico competing on Top Chef: New Orleans. To avoid killing people via temperature-born bacteria in his too-hot dashi, he ended up diluting the broth with ice, making his the worst dish on the series' first episode. He does still have a chance to redeem himself on the show's online component, Last Chance Kitchen, but it'll be a real challenge to hang in there after a long series of match-ups against the 15 forthcoming eliminated contestants. Oh well.
