Top Chef Finale – Wednesday, February 27 @ 10/9c on Bravo
This season of Top Chef Seattle has been so intense. The drama, the backstabbing, the stress and, oh yeah, the insanely delicious looking and tasting food.
The ups and downs of this season were just crazy. The most exciting moments were the roller derby racing, digging for oysters in the middle of the sound, and taking a helicopter to the top of a mountain only to be whisked away by a dogsled. But these had nothing on the drama behind the plates: Josie completely throwing Kristen under the bus for sauce, and Josh waiting for and then missing the birth of his baby girl Georgia was absolutely heartbreaking.
Can we talk food for a moment? My favorite challenge was when they used the local vendors from Pikes Marketplace as the inspirations for their dishes. I’m a sucker for local businesses and really enjoyed seeing their products on display. Then there were the king crab, fried chicken, butter cake with goat cheese and berries, Josh’s endless line of breakfast items! Oh I just want to lick the screen.
All of that has lead to tonight’s duo that is competing for the title of Top Chef, Wednesday, February 27 @ 10/9c. Chefs Brooke and Kristen will be facing off head to head in a LIVE competition with an audience watching their every move.
I have to tell you that I am really surprised on who has made it to the live finale tonight. Brooke, though quite capable, just seems to get flustered quite easily. Maybe it is just her personality, and it comes from working with her husband who she can vent with all the time? Her food does look incredibly delicious and I guess owning two restaurants in Los Angeles has been giving her practice.
Kristen has worked her way back after being eliminated even beating Josie in Last Chance Kitchen. That was a little taste of humble pie. (And can you believe that CJ lost at all in Last Chance Kitchen? He was on quite the streak there.) Kristen does seem to be fully focused on the task at hand, though. I think that she may be the winner tonight, but really it depends on the team that she has with her.
Who else do you think should have made it tonight? I was also pulling for Josh and his mustache. It was quite surprising that he went home instead of Sheldon’s red hat at the Governor’s mansion. I am glad that Josie went home, though. Not because of her cooking, but her poor attitude during the entire competition. Is that so wrong on a competition show? Maybe, but that is why I am not a judge I just watch from my couch.
I cannot see what they pull out tonight with their team. My only complaint is that I do not get to try the dishes along with those in the audience.
Who do you think will be crowned Top Chef?
