"The Biggest Loser's" Cate Laughlan said the red team put in the work in the gym. It just didn't show up on the scale. "It was not a reflection about the work we did," she said of the team's abysmal weight-loss numbers. The only person more unhappy than Cate, who was sent home, was Dolvett Quince, who was flying high after winning the first two weigh-ins. While she was disappointed to be sent home so early in the game, Cate said was completely transformed by her time at the ranch, brief as it was. To date, she has lost about 50 pounds (including 10 pounds more than was shown in the "Where are they now" segment)

So, let's see if we've got this straight. When Ja'Nel is on the red team, the team racks up an unbelievable winning streak, taking home the trophy for every single challenge -- save one. And when she gets switched over the the blue team, lo and behold, they turn their losing streak around by nailing the relay challenge. Is Ja'Nel the one to beat? Perhaps, if she can stay out of the way of flying lobster. And perhaps, unless we find out this has all been crafty editing and one of the other competitors -- Mary, maybe?

Edison's Heidi Prestegard slid a shot into the corner of the goal with two minutes left in the game to give the Red team a 2-1 victory over the Navy team in the Orange County Girls' Soccer Coaches Assn. Senior Classic Monday night at Chapman. Prestegard, a Times all-county second-team selection, took the ball in front of the goal and sailed it away from Los Alamitos goalkeeper Jenny Willemse, who had no chance.

OK, that made sense. Barret was banished from "Hell's Kitchen" this week, the first of three to go home. Were you surprised by Michael? Were you disappointed at the hint that Nedra was getting busy in the romance department ... only to find out that doesn't appear to be the case? And were you sorry to see Zach get away with sabotage during a dinner service meant to honor military men and women who served their country with much more honor?  The week kicked off with the men losing yet another challenge to the women, with the scoreboard reading 1-9. Talk about a throttling.

Ventura County has gotten itself some unlikely cheerleaders. After years of grousing about the backbreaking cost of doing business here, several dozen executives this week banded together with local politicians to form the Red Team--a self-declared "strike force" dedicated to selling Ventura County. "It's time Ventura County begins to roll out the red carpet and tear up the red tape," said Assemblyman Nao Takasugi (R-Oxnard), who founded the group Thursday.

There's really only one reason to watch "Hell's Kitchen": to see just how high chef Gordon Ramsay can turn up the heat on his charges. Using colorful from-across-the-pond language like "donkey" and "cow," combined with other spicy adjectives and expletives, the British chef heaps all kinds of verbal abuse on the men and women who have made a deal with this devil, signing away any shred of self-respect for their shot at running a professional kitchen.

David Martinez no longer has a shot at winning "MasterChef. " But he does have a new job working for "MasterChef" judge Graham Elliot. Elliot offered Martinez a gig just as Martinez was being bounced from the show for failing to properly cook a well-done steak. (Seriously. Chef Gordon Ramsay says there's an "art" to making a steak well done, so that it's properly seared, cooked through but not overdone, and yet still juicy. Martinez needs to go to that art school.) It was clear that Martinez wasn't ready to go the distance in this competition to find the best home cook in America, but he came close.

Brad Burton of El Capitan added 21 points and Demetrius Laffitte of Monte Vista scored 19 for the Blue team, which led from the outset. Poway's John Colborne led the Red team with 20 points and had a game-high 12 rebounds.

Three practice sessions didn't put them in peak postseason form, but for the 30 seniors who gathered for the Orange County All-Star Wrestling match Friday night at University High, it didn't matter. This night, to honor their high school wrestling accomplishments, was more about fun. "It's good for the kids, it's a compliment for the seniors, it's just a fun thing," said Santa Ana Coach Scott Glabb, who coached the winning Red team.

In a surprise twist, "Top Chef" veterans Josie Smith-Malave (Season 2), Chris "C.J. " Jacobsen (Season 3) and Stefan Richter (Season 5) returned to the competition Wednesday night. Padma Lakshmi announced that, after serving as judges on the Quickfire Challenge, the three chefs would join the existing chefs to compete for the next "Top Chef" title. Josie is still a fireball; C.J. is timid, though with a little more confidence; and Stefan is as arrogant as ever. "There isn't one person I've met who hasn't said, 'Stefan, you should have won,' " Stefan told the camera.

Has there ever been a more intimidating panel of celebuchefs in the history of cooking competitions? Even the Bocuse d'Or -- the Olympics of the food world -- arguably does not pack such recognizable star power as this week's "MasterChef" lineup, including: chefs Gordon Ramsay, Graham Elliot, Guy Savoy, Daniel Boulud, Alain Ducasse and restaurateur Joe Bastianich. The final four home cooks did just that, breaking down into teams of two. Christine Ha, as the winner of the last challenge, decided the lineup.

Ryan Umane's elimination this week from "MasterChef" was almost anti-climactic. Almost. Umane baked himself out of the competition when he failed a pressure test. He served up a sorely undercooked molten lava chocolate cake, so oozy that it caused chef Gordon Ramsay to wonder whether it would best be eaten with a straw. If Ryan gets credit for anything, it's that he manned up and volunteered to give up his white apron. Frankly, viewers would have preferred to see Tali Clavijo go instead, and so we'd get one more round of fireworks between Umane and rivals Christine Ha and Monti Carlo.

First-round draft pick Byron Irvin starred in an outdoor rookie game, and Clyde Drexler slam-dunked a ball into a basket elevated to 11 feet 7 1/2 inches at the Portland Trail Blazers' Slam 'N Jam event Saturday night. A crowd estimated at 20,000 attended the event at Civic Stadium. Irvin, a guard from Missouri, scored 15 points, nine in the second half, to lead the Red team to a 77-68 win over the White squad. He left the game with two minutes to play because of a sprained right ankle.

Reporting from Avondale, Ariz. -- Few could have blamed Kasey Kahne and his Red Bull NASCAR Sprint Cup team for ending this season with a whimper. They finished with a bang instead. Kahne won the Kobalt Tools 500 at Phoenix International Raceway on Sunday to snap an 81-race winless streak, and Red Bull won for only the second time since the team joined the Sprint Cup series in 2007. And it wasn't a fluke. Kahne has had perhaps the strongest showing of any Cup driver in recent weeks except for Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart, who will decide the championship next weekend after finishing second and third, respectively, behind Kahne on Sunday.

The Kings arrived in Los Angeles in the wee hours Sunday morning, ending Part 1 of their annual February tour of North America. It was a happy flight home after Saturday's lengthy 4-3 shootout victory over the Calgary Flames, the Kings' first win in the Saddledome since December 2005 and one that lifted the team into the top eight in the NHL's Western Conference. Now comes the hard part. Because after doing some laundry and picking up the dry cleaning, the team leaves again Wednesday to continue its franchise-record streak of 10 road games with an eastern swing in which they will play six games and cover more than 5,000 miles in 12 days.
