Bryan or Melissa for the win is my new mantra. The rest I hope loseJune 9, 2020 at 11:36 am #1203523815
With Gregory gone, I see the finale being between Kevin and Melissa.June 10, 2020 at 3:30 pm #1203526591
However, like with Richard, this All Stars could just be for show and they’re beloved Bryan Voltaggio was always gonna win.June 11, 2020 at 1:50 pm #1203528419

No Kevin! I thought Brian V. was the actual goner. It just wasn’t his episode. It had to especially hurt being told from Italian chefs that your dishes had no “soul,” and he’s Italian-descent. Kevin’s pork dish must have been worse, and more points were taken away for not featuring the prosciutto di Parma properly. I should have known in the editing that once Kevin said that he “knows” he will be in the finale, that would prove not to be the case. Seems like this is Melissa’s crown to lose, but is it that simple? Stephanie’s doing her best cooking of the season and is clearly the underdog choice of these three chefs. I had Kevin winning this without Gregory around. I feel bad for Kevin going through all he did in “LDK” to fight back to the main show only to lose in the penultimate. Looks like the finale will be intense. We’re getting back LeeAnn, Malarkey, and Kevin to help execute! No Gregory? I would have thought he’d be asked or available before some of these others.June 18, 2020 at 4:18 am #1203540158
Episode Title: “Finito!”
Synopsis: In an epic Italian showdown, the final three All-Stars cook the meal of their lives in an effort to take home the ultimate title and prize. To win, all they’ll need to impress not only the judges–Tom, Padma, Gail, and Nilou Motamed, but also culinary superstars Mauro Colagreco, Clare Smyth, Marcus Samuelsson, Janice Wong, Tony Mantuano, Eighth Generation Italian Butcher Dario Cecchini, and Food and Wine magazine’s Hunter Lewis. It’s a fight to the bitter end, but only one will be have their second chance to finally be crowned Top Chef. Season Finale.

YASSSS MELISSA! Finally a female winner for a change lol! She did that shit tonight! Such a humble and inspiring winner! At various times in the season, I actively rooted for others (Gregory, Kevin, Brian V., LeeAnn, Joe Sasto, etc.), but Melissa was a consistent force in the competition that I definitely took for granted. Great season as a whole. Savor it while you can, b/c who knows when we’ll get another season again, if the series continues at all logistically in the “new normal.”June 19, 2020 at 7:55 am #1203542088
Not gonna lie, I feel like Voltagio won the first course and econd course and Mellissa won the 3rd and fourth. That dessert put her over the edge i think
