    I think the judges decision at the end, defeated the title of this TV program.
    I am very disappointed about this and I do not want to watch it again.
    My opinion is that their judging was inconsistent with the title of the show.
    The “Wickedly Perfect” winner should have been someone who did not need chances for a come-back!
    The “Wickedly Perfect” winner should have not been someone who just has the “potential to do great things”!
    The “Wickedly Perfect” winner should have been someone who has consistently been whipping their competition into submission!”
    The judges shows favoritism to someone who they thought who was sweet and talented but not the best and they are stereotypical in their judging!
    Mitch (MAP), by far, deserve to be the The Wickedly Perfect Winner!!!

    The show winner does not live up to the name. The judges loved the underdog from the moment, they brought her back on the show after being eliminated. ELIMINATED!!! How does being ELIMINATED mate with being Wickedly Perfect? It does not!! The judges and producers of this show must have had her picked as the winner from the beginning. Kimberly is beautiful and talented woman who would be a poster child for Country Living Magazine. She is also easy to teach and willing to be molded into the image of their choosing. That is how she won.

    Mitch, on the other hand, is “Wickedly Perfect” and should have won. By his on camera comments, attitude throughout the show, competitive nature, presentations, leadership ability, ability to make quick decisions, ability to answer questions intelligently on the fly, and ability to play the game. He was axed by producers who changed the rules of the game to give eliminated contestants a chance to get back in and two judges with a soft spot for Kimberly. The judges should have had the name of the show taged on their foreheads so they could remember what they were really looking for in a winner. I think it ended the way that the producers wanted it to because Mitch would not have been as easy to control. That’s my opinion.

    Kimberly isn’t/was’t qualified to even be one of “The Last Two”. Dawn or Amy were better than Kimberly to go toe-to-toe with Mitch. And Mitch should have still come out the ultimate winner!

    Kimberly showed herself mostly to be one dimensional–ribbon flowers everywhere/everytime–and mediocre. I appreciate her carpentry ability. But throughout Mitch had all that and all else to be a style, taste leader. Mitch “has it” with which to write a book. “The Kim” does not.

    What’s wrong with the world today, “the Kimberly instances”–bullshit annointed; how also Darlene was voted off after pulling back the Crafty Beavers from nearly 100% failure on that episode.

    I enjoyed “Wickedly Perfect”. But if all they wanted as result was a Martha Stewart knockoff, stating that upfront would have resulted in a worthy Martha Stewart knockoff.

    At the last, I expected better of Bobby Flay.

    The only thing “Wickedly Perfect” about the finale, was to prove that the winner was a “Wickedly Perfect” fix. The producers picked a pretty female face, probably from the beginning, and she was going to win no matter how bad her individual projects were. She did not have an original thought in her head throughout the entire show. My prediction? Kimberly will be a flash in the pan and Mitch will go on to bigger and better “REAL” success!!!!
    Bobby Flay picks her when her food SUCKED at her big party? What?? This is the first and last “reality” show I have/will ever watch.

    I think anyone who does not check the food of their own affair should be a big indicator that there is a problem there!

    Mitch was my vote from early on, although I did like Darlene…
    One thing I did notice on the cbs site, is that Mitch didn’t have but one “how to” and I was looking for the “grandmas” breakfast roll recipe that Bobby helped himself to a second time.

    Here I am thinking Mitch was gonna save this for his first “show”!!!

    Mitch was consistent and just plain wonderful.

    I hope he finds a deal some place else… I would love to see him again!

    Dudes (Bobby) and (Candace), just who were you watching on this show. I thought that you sought talent but in a real disappointing way you picked the untalented mean spirited but pretty one.

    Darlene was the best person in the whole series. She was the best cook, seamstress, wood worker, and everything else. I know that she was a little quirky in the beginning but after a while she really was great.

    The great disappointment is that it boiled down to the beauty queen. No talent, no grace, pretentious, and a head as big as the moon. Was that woman successful at one task?

    Shame on you dudes.

    Geez, had I’d known all you had to do to win the contest was to just make cheap-looking flowers out of ribbons, I would have entered myself! The judges should have required a little bit more that that from the winner. I watched every episode from beginning to end and I kept waiting for someone to stand out and show us what it really means to be wickedly perfect. Darlene was right, sometimes people cash checks that their talent can’t cover.

    Thank GOD! I thought it was just me. I fully believed it would come down to Mitch and Darlene – when Kimberly got to finals my jaw dropped but I figured Mitch would smoke her.
    Just a personal note – I’m invited to two parties – both have a great look – and the food is horrible at one. Gee which host/hostess am I going to want to emulate.
    I would have followed Mitch’s career because he showed some real talent – ditto for Darlene particulary since she got shafted after almost single handedly salavging the park challenge. Kimberly I could care less about – her ideas look exactly like what I would find in Southern Living…

    I was appalled that “no talent”, bitchy, boring Kimberly was chosen over the multi-talented and innovative Mitch. Kimberly’s party theme was oh-so-done before and not to sample the foods before serving to guests is just stupid! Hello – entertaining 101! To say that this passe princess is “Wickedly Perfect” is just ludicrous – she’s not fit to shine Martha Stewart’s shoes (and she’d probably use the wrong polish!).

    Contrast her fuddy-duddy “Country” French decorating ideas which went “out” in the 80′s to Mitch’s cool metropolitan style and who should have won this competition is really no contest!

    I’d watch Mitch’s show every week, but could care less what the insipid Kimberly is offering. Anyone see her first visit on the CBS morning show? She showed how to make party invitations in the shape of diapers and aprons! What is this – the 1950′s?

    I’m relieved to see that other people besides me think the show was “rigged” – the only reason I could think of for their not chosing Mitch was because he was “gay”. The “control” issue never crossed my mind until reading it on all these posts.

    Shame on CBS in either case.

    I am very glad that Kimberly won. I think Mitch is a backstabbing, overdone, annoying poster boy for Egos R us. I know Kimberly and her family. I am very proud that someone I know is going on to wonderful and exciting adventures. Kimberly is elegant, down to earth, knowledgable, and very respectful to others around her. Mitch is all about himself, that just doesn’t cut it. I think the judges made a wonderful decision. I think that some people have a problem with class and elegance. Kimberly’s party was excellent. Yes, the food may not have been the best..but OVERALL hers BLEW Mitch away. His looked like a Pepto Bismol bottle exploded. Did ya’ll see the arrows on the floor??? Oh my gosh!!! Cheesy..pass the velvetta. I am proud of my friend, and I am proud that a southern girl took it all!!

    Okay,… I know it’s only May after all, but is there anything Kimberly Kennedy can do that Carol Duvall of HGTV hasn’t done already? Cheap invitations and rubber stamps – the woman’s skill level hasn’t even reached fourth grade art class! CBS was either desperate as hell or pussy-whipped by Candace Bushnell to think this southern bore could be the next stylemaker. Her title should be changed from Wickedly Perfect to Wicked Pretender.

    I missed the last two shows and I was dying to find out if Mitch had won. When I finally found that he did not and that Kim had won, I was floored. My husband and I watched this together and we both were rooting for Mitch because he was very talented and aggressive and strived for perfection. Plus Kim was eliminated!!! Why in blue blazes was she brought back. ELIMINATED MEANS ELIMANTED. It was not a true contest. Boo to the network and producers for allowing that to happen. We won’t be watching you again.

    I was rooting for Darlene the whole way after she had proven herself time and time again that she had the talent and flexibility to meet every challenge, from wood-working to gourmet dish. I was so disappointed at her elimination and felt that the show had not upheld its integrity that I couldn’t watch another episode after that. I was disgusted.

    I am so glad I get a chance to express my disappointment in the winner Kimberly Kennedy. I would NEVER watch her do a thing on TV or read anything about her. She was about creative as that tree stump. Mitch and Darlene were by far better winners because of their creativity and style. Where can we see them?

    Just let me know when Mitch and Darlene get a show or a book deal. They have my total support. They made the show. All Kim demonstrated was that she was not smart enough to control her hateful attitude in front of millions of viewers. If the show comes back, and I doubt it will, even though I liked it generally (not the outcome), it will only be if they get rid of the judges and change the unfair format. Each week I sat there amazed at the unfairness of the show.

    The best outcome would be if both Mitch and Darlene get successful shows and the flower stringer is recognized for what she is.

    I agree with every other post re: Mitch is… Wickedly Perfect and he should have won no doubt not Kim! Kim’s personality is fake. Mitch is real and makes no apologies.
