What You Didn’t See on the ‘Top Chef’ Finale #topchef

Spoiler Alert! If you haven’t watched the Season 10 Finale of ‘Top Chef’ then click HERE for a recap or go hit up your DVR!

Last night we watched Kristen Kish take the title of ‘Top Chef‘ for the Seattle based adventure. She competed against Brooke Williamson for the second female winner of the cook off. They were thrown into an area filled with culinary VIP including the past 9 season winners.

“That was more intimidating than anything,” said Kristen after winning. “It was kind of comforting because they knew what we were going through, but it was very intimidating because they can be some of the harshest critics.”

Things seemed super rushed, but in reality…what you didn’t see was covered by the magic of tv.

*It took over 8 hours from start to finish to film the finale.

*Diners used plastic cutlery. Using metal messes with the sound quality of the show. All the clinking and scraping is incredibly distracting.

*The diners portions were drastically smaller than what the judges were served.

*A sound snafu held up filming for 1 hour, but the cooking went on.

*In fact, the cooking never stopped – not even during critiques from the judges. The girls’ team continued cooking while they received their votes.

*Kristen won in the 4th round, but still served her 5th round dessert.

What did you think of last night’s TC finale? The new format seemed to get mixed reviews.

bravo, top chef
