Aren't you all kinds of excited? Let's take a look, shall we?
The New Contestants
Steve Tolin, Scott Ramp, Samantha Allen and Rick Prince
Lyma Millot, Laney Parkhurst, Eddie Holecko and Adolfo Barreto Rivera
The Returning Contestants
Tate Steinsiek, Roy Wooley, RJ Haddy and Miranda Jory
Laura Tyler, Frank Ippolito, Eric Zapata and Alana Rose Schiro
I knew Eric Zapata was returning, thanks to his win on Face Off Redemption (think Top Chef's Last Chance Kitchen) last season. I did NOT know that so many others would be returning. Do you approve of who came back? I'm OVER THE MOON to see Alana, Roy and Laura from s3. I'm also glad to see Tate, and not just for someone to drool over. Hey, speaking of which, where's my Wayne?
What? Since when am I YOUR Wayne?
Oh, honey, since January 15, 2013.

Neither Eric or Alana are the youngest, it's Eddie who is still in school at SCAD. I still have to root for Laura, since she's from Orlando (as am I) but I want to cheer on the eldest, Rick, too. Some of the fresh contestants have impressive credentials. Hey, doesn't Adolfo remind you of Alexis Matteo out of drag? Laney is sporting some Sandra Bullock realness. Steve looks like Steven Weber from Wings, huh? RJ sort of looks like a showered & spruced up Jerry, eh?
