This week on Top Chef Seattle, the Final Five contestants — Lizzie, Stefan, Josh, Sheldon and Brooke — boarded a cruise ship and only four got off in Alaska.
The final returning contestant, Sheldon, was the one who packed his knives and go. That means the final four is Lizzie, Josh, Brooke and Sheldon. And one of them will be the next Top Chef. Well, unless Stefan or Kristen or CJ win Last-Chance Kitchen and return to win the show.
So the chefs are headed to Alaska for the final challenges, but before they get there they’ve got to complete this week’s Quickfire Challenge and Elimination Challenge aboard the ship. Fun, fun.
Top Chef Episode 13 Scorecard
Quickfire Challenge: Create a dish with iceberg lettuce as the main ingredient. And foodies across the country fall down and die.
Quickfire Winner: Sheldon’s Vietnamese lettuce wrap (not pictured above because Bravo.com dropped the ball this week)
Elimination Challenge: Put a new spin on Surf N Turf. And it’ll be served in the ship’s quirky restaurant Q-sine.
Top Chefs: Brooke, Josh and Lizzie
Winning Chef: Brooke for her frog legs (that’s turf???) and mussels
Bottom Chefs: Sheldon and Stefan
Eliminated Chef: Stefan for his over-crunchy pork belly and eel ravioli
Were you sad to see Stefan go? Did the judges make the right choice (not that you can truly answer this question since you didn’t taste the food — ha!)?
