Predictions-- Top Chef Final 2 Tonight?

I say Casey and Hung. Dale a third, Brian on the bottom.

  1. As popular Casey is, I don't see her in the final two. I'm going to sound like a total Top Chef nut, but in an interview where they were Andy Cohen and Tom were playing word association, Tom replied "chef" when Casey's name was brought up. When Hung's name was brought up he declined to comment because he said that he was still judging him.

      Interesting on the word association! But perhaps Tom meant that the jury is still out on Hung as to whether he's "chef" material?

    2. I'm going to agree with you madison, only because they're the best two of the remaining four. Unless Brian pulls a rabbit out of his hat (and is able to cook it properly! LOL), I doubt he'll pass muster. HOWEVER....the first quickfire challenge in Aspen is trout - cleaning, gutting, and cooking it in 20 minutes alongside a river. Mr. Seafood ought to be able to deal with that. Depends on the elimination challenge.

      1. Yes, Casey and Hung. Casey will win in the end because of Hung's poor leadership skills (just like Marcel lost because of his).

        1. this is hard but I will rate Brian above Dale. If seafood man cannot do a proper trout then he is in trouble!! I see Casey as more of a leader than Hung and much more likely to start something than the last season winner.

          1. I think Hung and Casey with Dale as first "runner up"

            Just as an FYI - tonight is the reunion show and next week is part one of the finale.

              um, no, tonight is part 1 of the finale, 10/3 is the finale with the live reveal in Chicago.

                Really? I thought for sure I heard that there was to be a reunion show and then the finale starts on 10/3. Guess not.

                1. re: heathermb

                  nope, the excitement begins tonight. set your tivo!

            2. i just checked the website and part I of the finale is tonight and the finale is in 2 weeks from what I understood. soooo I am guessing the reunion is next week.

              1. So I'm confused, is there no reunion episode? Or are they doing it after the winner is chosen? Because 10/3 is this Wednesday.

                1. alll the trailers for the show coming up on the third indicate it's the final of the finals with the live reveal.

                  I haven't heard anything about a reunion.

                    they may not do one.

                    don't forget, they already had a reunion show earlier in the season with contestants from all 3 cycles.

                    the episode was really lame, and it would be a bummer if they shafted us this time around...but we may not get to see all season 3 chefs reunited on one show this season.

                    1. re: ChefJune

                      According to TVGuide.com - 10/3 is the finale with a live reveal in Chicago (site of TC4), and 10/10 will be "Andy Cohen presides over this reunion clip show in which the Season 3 chefs gather with series host Padma Lakshmi, plus "Top Chef" figures Tom Colicchio, Gail Simmons and Ted Allen, to dish on the season's highs and woes."

                        right on! nice detective work.

                        now the $64,000 question...

                        who's going to make that t-shirt for hung & send it in so they can present it to him on the show?
