    Episode Title: “Cabin Fever”

    Synopsis: The remaining chefs head to the mountains, a few hours outside of Los Angeles, to go to Summer Camp where they are challenged to an outdoor grilling Quickfire for Padma and “Top Chef” Kentucky winner Kelsey Barnard Clark. Before the sun rises, the chefs get to work on an upscale brunch buffet for 200 moms vacationing at the camp using a very limited stock pantry. It’ll take more than s’mores and a round of kumbayas to impress the moms. Another contestant is eliminated from the competition.

    Another great episode but that elimination didn’t surprise me at all

    It looked like it was going to be between LeeAnn and Melissa. Kinda sad for one of the OGs not to go further, and she also tanked it on “LDK.” Nice challenge win for Brian V! All of those people packed in that campsite eating cafeteria-style food. That actually made me cringe now. I thought he might steamroll this competition, but Gregory has taken the driver’s seat instead. Kevin will most likely return to the competition. Looking to be a competitive fight to the finish!

    2 hours of “Top Chef” lol! Glad for Kevin making it back in. Interesting how they did “LDK” bringing back two chefs this season. If this show can ever come back, I hope this element of “Top Chef” isn’t abandoned. Poor Karen. It wasn’t her episode. Losing for another Asian dish, and this time in a complicated Japanese progressive menu elimination challenge. She had one of the bottom deserts in the Quickfire, and then couldn’t outmatch Kevin to get back in the competition again. Yay Stephanie! Major first win for her. Sad that her prize was a trip to the Tokyo Olympics. Wonk, wonkkkk. I hope Bravo gives her the cash equivalent of the trip or something. Also sad getting the backstory of Stephanie’s deceased brother. I’m guessing opioid addiction was the culprit. Strong final six chefs! Looks like the show is going to Italy for the finale! It’s crazy how much the world has changed since this was filmed. Final predictions? Depends on how many are allowed in the finale. I’m betting on Gregory, Brian V., and Kevin. Malarkey is too spastic. No women in the finale would be scandalous, but between Stephanie and Melissa, I don’t know. I was expecting LeeAnn or Jennifer to make it farther than they did. Melissa if it’s a final four. Otherwise, I think the others are more likely, barring a major upset elimination.

    Been disappointing to see Melissa in the bottom so frequently… she was a winning machine at the beginning of the season. I hope she can regain her footing and make it to the end. My money’s still on Gregory to win the whole thing.

    I don’t see her making it to the final 2/3 but I want Stephanie to make the top 4/5. I love her.

    Not that many people left, damn. I love Stephanie so it was nice seeing her her win. Of course her one win had one of the best prizes but now she’s fucked until next year…maybe.

    I think it’s anybody’s game right now. Nobody is dominating. They’re sort of moving into a Bryan comeback while Melissa, once a frontrunner, keeps slipping. Which is sad.

    They showed like 2 seconds of LCK and there were like 6 people there, so, I don’t know what’s going on or what this means.

    Episode Title: “Michael’s Santa Monica”

    Synopsis: Tom makes his final decision from “Last Chance Kitchen” on who should return to the competition. Then the chefs take off in a Quickfire with Padma and Jonathan Waxman making a two-course Business-Class dish for an airline. For their final challenge in Los Angeles before jetting off to Italy for the finale, the chefs go to Michael’s Santa Monica. Another contestant is eliminated from the competition.

    Tough break for Malarkey! He was the one most expendable out of this six, and he certainly wouldn’t have been saved for Gregory. The plating/servers incident rightfully threw him, and then doing a dreaded duo that Tom hates (do one dish well and not two dishes half-assed lol!) was enough to send him home. Part of me wanted him to quit for the drama, but I guess that would have been unfair to Gregory to make it to the finale on a technicality with his competition resigning. I hope the chefs enjoyed Italy for the finale, since that’s never happening again now.

    Episode Title: “Lucca”

    Synopsis: The final five chefs travel to Italy, where they must make an apertivo for 30 locals from the town of Lucca that pairs perfectly with a Peroni beer; in the elimination challenge, they hunt for the elusive white truffle, which they must use in a dish for a Tuscan food festival; another contestant is eliminated from the competition.

    I had Gregory winning the season outright! I’m devastated.

    I thought for sure Stephanie would leave this episode. I like her a lot but she just seems like the weakest out of the 4 (now 3) remaining and she hasn’t had the best season. I also thought Gregory was winning this when the season started.
