Top Chef Power Rankings: Spam And Shocking Eliminations

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

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

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. Food truck legend Roy Choi showed up as a guest judge for the quickfire and asked the chefs to put their own spin on a po’ boy sandwich.

Top Chef Power Rankings: Technique And More Technique

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

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. The New Orleans super chef is revered by pretty much everyone in the culinary world, and that almost universal respect was on full display when he walked into the kitchen to judge this week’s quickfire.

Top Chef Power Rankings: Questlove And College Students

Did you know Questlove is a big time foodie? Apparently the beloved Roots drummer owns his own restaurant and always makes dining a major priority wherever he’s at, which considering he works as a professional musician is all over the world. For this week’s quickfire challenge, the big man showed up and asked the chefs to put a spin on one of his favorite proteins: the drumstick.

Top Chef Power Rankings: The Best And Worst Service In Restaurant Wars' History

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

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

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.

Top Chef Power Rankings: Highlighting and Lowlighting Local Ingredients

People always point to restaurant wars as the toughest Top Chef challenge, but honestly, I don’t think there’s anything more difficult than the ones in which the contestants are asked to cook outside. Nature adds such a crazy element of chance and in theory, greatly limits the number of dishes, at least for those who aren’t Nina.

Top Chef Power Rankings: The Battle Of The Arancinis

After a week with only an elimination challenge, Top Chef returned to its quickfire roots this episode with a little help from Padma and Gail’s mothers. Some production assistants wrapped every single item in the pantry in tin foil. The players were split into two different teams, and the mammas were set loose on a shopping spree to get their ingredients and materials.

Top Chef Power Rankings: Vietnamese Tomato Sauce

Like any large city, New Orleans has more than its share of thriving ethnic communities, one of which is Vietnamese. The immigrants came en mass to help with the shrimping industry, and over the years, they actually began putting their own stamp on the local food. So, to celebrate that rich history, Top Chef producers decided to axe the quickfire and immediately challenge the contestants with making Vietnamese food this week

Top Chef Power Rankings: Recreating Classic Food Perfectly

This week, Top Chef started with a bang. Jumping right in, Padma announced that the quickfire would be an elimination challenge. The tension in the room was palpable as contestants busted their bottoms to finish an excellent dish in a timely manner. Aaron unfortunately overseasoned his kale, causing it to be salty and “inedible.”

Top Chef Power Rankings: Cooking For Hurricane Katrina Volunteers

This week’s episode began right where last week’s ended. The chefs, exhausted, were sitting around after the first challenge when Padma showed up, which is not a good sign. The competitors were then tasked to pull an all-nighter, or at least part of one, to create a gumbo dish inspired by their lives.

Top Chef Power Rankings: Cooking Alligator In The Swamp

The chefs aren’t forced to cook their way into the competition in Season 11. In fact, there’s not a lot of lead-in for the competition, as the chefs aren’t even given a quickfire challenge this week. Instead, they are tossed mardi gras beads with a protein on them and asked to head straight to the elimination challenge where they will cook dishes with either turtle, alligator, or frog legs in the swamp.

Top Chef Power Rankings: The Last Chance Kitchen Winner Returns

This week’s challenge for the finale was a toughie. The three remaining chefs were asked to work in Tom’s restaurant, Craft, to complete a three-course meal for the judges and other diners eating in the restaurant. During the show Tom expedited which was partly a treat to see and partly a slightly scary ordeal. Brooke almost crumbled under the pressure, which was strange because that was the first time we’ve really seen a big moment of indecision from her all season.

Top Chef Power Rankings: Babies And Bittersweet Endings

The first few minutes of this week's episode were closer to Top Travel than Top Chef. The final three contestants were taken uphill via a helicopter and then were taken by sled dog to a glacier where they cooked for Iditarod runners. For the quickfire the three had to work with camp food and tiny stoves to create a dish. Brooke won with her halibut. However, that was only the first of challenges to come.

Top Chef Power Rankings: A Salmon Slip Up

Top Chef contestants hopped straight off the Alaskan cruise and into the next quickfire challenge. This week, the final four chefs were asked to create a yummy dish using crab to the best of their ability. Interestingly, Lizzie, Brooke, Sheldon and Josh all interpreted this differently and came up with some dishes that ranged from a simple crab and toast to a strange-sounding miso soup. The latter may sound strange, but apparently it was delicious, because Sheldon’s miso dish took home the quickfire win.

Top Chef Power Rankings: Grueling Days At Sea

Last night’s episode of Top Chef was a critical one. With five contestants left, the crew left Seattle to take a cruise toward Alaska, where the last few episodes will take place. Top Chef Masters host Curtis Stone was the guest judge this week, and after a tough quickfire in which the contestants had to create 200 single bite dishes for some of the guests on board using iceberg lettuce as a main component, Sheldon took home the quickfire win. Luckily, after that tough event, the contestants were given some downtime.

Top Chef Power Rankings: Fried Chicken Failures

All Top Chef assignments can typically be split into one of two categories. Either they’re pretty broad challenges like “make a Thanksgiving dish” that allow a contestants a slew of options for both course and flavor profile, or they’re far more specific and only allow for a small bit of improvisation. This week, both of the challenges the chefs faced fell into the hyper-specific category, and consequently, some of them played to people’s strengths and some of them did not.
