Melissa ruins entire show

Last episode says it all! Pathetic Melissa stated several times in the episodes “that women are the best bbq cooks”. Rasheed hands down beat all the constants throughout the 10 shows only to be told he”was a gentleman”! Really Netflix at least get some real bbq cooks and judges that are not so obviously slanted! Why only two judges if this is the “Greatest Bbq contest in America”???
