See, now I didn't really think that was all that funny.
First, she claimed she would NEVER look like those model-types anyway, so she might as well eat whatever she wanted... fattening or not. So she grabbed one of the canapes and instead of popping it directly into her mouth whole starts to essentially "eat around the fattening stuff" and only eat the little that's left.
Funny? Laugh out loud funny? I don't know... not terribly humorous.
Also, I thought Matt LeBlanc's line delivery was EXTREMELY ham-handed and UN-FUNNY, like when he came into the restaurant to meet them for the first time. Hadn't really been prepared beforehand about the show or whole idea, as the creators had been told he would be. He was just rude, snotty, took his cell phone calls, etc.. Hollywood-cliche? Sure. Funny? Not really... his delivery was just awful.
Hey, I'll give it some more opportunity. But for me Episode Two was NOT as entertaining as Episode One.
