I liked Ji pretty much from the start. She was unfortunately not on the show for very long, as she injured herself in the second episode of the fifth season. However she managed to set herself apart from many of the other contestants on that season, being she was a talented cook, and I didn’t see any bitchiness on her side in the edit.
I truly admired her though when she carried on working despite the pain that she evidently was in. She didn’t seem to make any major mistakes, concentrating on the task at hand, rather than her own pain and discomfort.
More than that though, she was the only one that seemed to have any real compassion for Lacey. The other contestants, understandably avoided Lacey during her emotional breakdown after the scallop competition, given Lacey’s previous behaviour, but Ji went to talk to her, in a attempt to help.
The standing ovation that the blue team gave her, when she made the decision to leave, was well deserved and a rather touching moment in a series which doesn’t often have such things.
I'm a thirty something woman who lives in the north of England. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, creating stories both written and verbal since childhood. While studying at Edge Hill College, I got several poems published by a small publisher in the USA, and in Europe. I have been part of several writing groups, and done quite a few courses in a attempt to hone my writing skills further. I love reading different genres of fiction, knowing that the best way to develop my own writing, and my vocabulary is by exposing myself to the different ways that other people choose to describe things.
The most recent writing course that I've been part of, run by a published author, included a exercise in which we were challenged to read things that we would never usually even look at.
It inspired me to take up a challenge. Namely to attempt to read at least one book by every author which is stocked in my local library. I soon realised that I was being far too ambitious, especially given the fact that every library rotates their stock too often for me to keep track.
I've decided to instead attempt to read a book every day, starting with a author whose surname begins with A, and ending with a author whose surname begins with Z. It doesn't matter what the topic of the book is, or if it's fiction or non fiction, everything is useful for me at the minute.
