Top Chef Power Rankings: Spam And Shocking Eliminations image
This week’s episode began with a few lush shots of Hawaii. The chefs arrived and barely had time to settle before they were asked to go outside. Shirley, Nick, and Nina were convinced a challenge would commence, and they were right. First, though, Louis popped up as the winner or Last Chance Kitchen—a feat considering he was eliminated eight weeks ago.

Top Chef Power Rankings: The Last One Before The Finale image
It sucks to get eliminated at any point. That’s not a fun experience, but as Tom pointed out in this week’s episode, there are two potential eliminations that suck more than any others. 1) Getting eliminated immediately prior to the finale and 2) getting eliminated first.

Top Chef Power Rankings: Jon Favreau Helps Narrow The Field image
Remember last week when the judges bizarrely decided to award immunity with only six players left in the competition? Well, they went to that same well again this week.

Top Chef Power Rankings: Technique And More Technique  image
How long will there be immunity for? That’s always a serious wonder among the contestants on Top Chef. Sometimes the show puts the coveted get out of jail free card up for grabs when there are six contestants left, and sometimes Padma throws up the middle finger and says no more.

Top Chef Power Rankings: Smothered Crawfish And John Besh image
Pretty much all of the guest judges on Top Chef get at least a few nice comments and pieces of praise from the wide-eyed contestants, but very few of them routinely achieve as much adulation as John Besh.

Top Chef Power Rankings: The Best And Worst Service In Restaurant Wars' History image
Restaurant Wars. It’s the one challenge every single incoming chef thinks about prior to the start of the season. Sometimes Tom and company do it with ten competitors left. Sometimes they do it with eight. Much to the delight of the ten people left in the game, the judges decided to make it ten this year, and without a quickfire, the players were thrown into the twenty-four hours of hell as soon as this week’s episode started.

Top Chef Power Rankings: Potluck Special image
Battling bad weather and a lack of equipment always leads to some bad dishes, but if you were to ask the players what wrinkles they like least, I’m confident they most despise any challenge that involves trading food. Throw them outside. Take away their knives. Do damn near whatever you want. Just let them finish their own dish.

Top Chef Power Rankings: Breaking Down A Pig image
In case if you needed a reminder as to how fundamentally weird New Orleans is, we got it this week thanks to Dr. John. The noted eccentric and beloved musician is most famous for one badass song, but he’s apparently also a well-known lover of hot sauce. As such, the quickfire required each of the contestants to put their own spin on the classic condiment.
