Top Chef New Orleans Last Chance Kitchen: And the Winner Is…

On last night’s Top Chef: New Orleans, the winner of Last Chance Kitchen was revealed, as chosen by Shirley, Nicholas, and Nina in a blind tasting, along with Tom Colicchio and Emeril Lagasse. Check out the winner below, and keep reading for a rundown of how the semi-finals shook out.

Then, the final four cooked a Spam Quickfire, which Nicholas won, and there was a double elimination, which Nicholas won, and, in conclusion, we lost many, many bets pegging Shirley and Nina as the final two for the second consecutive all-lady finale. It’ll be Nina and Nicholas going into the final challenge next week, if Nick doesn’t stroke out first. (He might be the most anxious cheftestant Top Chef has seen since Richard Blais.)
