Top Chef Power Rankings: Questlove And College Students
#4) Nicholas Elmi (31): Nicholas came back down to Earth a little bit after a few incredible weeks in a row. His quail was oversalted in the quickfire and his elimination challenge dish was largely greeted with mehs. Luckily, said elimination dish was better than three of his opponents; so, he ended up in the middle of the pack and will fight on another day.
#5) Carrie Mashaney (30): Carrie took home the quickfire title this week, and as such, she decided to let the other chefs choose their work stations before her. At this point in the competition, that was the right thing to do, but even with the disadvantage, she should have come up with something better than broccoli and sauce. Thatís like first week of culinary school shit.
#6) Brian Huskey (29): Brian is good. On any given week, he has the capability of competing with any single person in this competition. What he lacks, however, is consistency. So, while I certainly wouldnít say he has no chance of winning the whole shebang, itís hard to imagine him getting through the rest of the competition without making a blunder serious enough to send him packing.
#7) Stephanie Cmar (24): Everyone left is good. Weíre long past the point of eliminating people who canít hack it. Everyone left should be very proud of themselves. More importantly, everyone left has the capability of making something extraordinary, but Stephanie really hasnít shown the ability to wreck multiple challenges in a row, and thatís what she would need to do to advance to the finals.
