And the winner of Last Chance Kitchen was…Kristen Kish! Well, obviously. But that wasn’t even the best part of last night’s episode! The best part was watching Sheldon get kicked off (sorry Sheldon; nothing personal, and we’re obsessed with your adorable daughters), because that means Top Chef Season 10 will have a female winner! In nine long seasons, there has only been one Lady Top Chef, and it was Stephanie Izard all the way back in Season 4. We’ve been living in a testosterone wasteland ever since, but last night, Tom Colicchio, Hugh Acheson, and Emeril Lagasse advanced Brooke and Kristen to the final two.
Next week, they’ll face off in a live studio audience-style/Iron Chef-esque kitchen stadium battle. And they’ll be doing it in front of alllll the Top Chefs who have taken the title before them. No pressure, ladies.
