These last episodes of Top Chef Season 20 have been incredibly shocking for those who have been following it so far. In our last update, we listed former Top Chef: Middle East winner Charbel Hayek as one of the favorites to win the entire competition. The next week, he was eliminated. This came as a shock to most oddsmakers, as Hayek had strong dishes in his last couple of episodes, before serving a failed attempt at a seared lamb loin with carrot Dijonnaise. 

On May 4, the chefs finally participated in “Restaurant Wars”, one of the highlights of Top Chef. In this elimination competition, the contestants were split into two teams, and they served up an entire curated menu for the judges to enjoy. It was the restaurant “Root”, vs. “United Kitchen”, and United Kitchen came out on top, with Nicole Gomes being eliminated, as the judges deemed her dish was out of place and poorly executed. Nicole was a consistent candidate up until this point, so it was equally shocking to see her go.

Buddha Lo Back on Top – Ali Has to Settle for Second

One of the major storylines this season has involved Houston chef Buddha Lo, who has emerged as a fan favorite for Top Chef: World All-Stars. In the most recent episode, Lo acted as the executive chef for United Kitchen, creating a cohesive (and delicious) restaurant concept that managed to deliver on its promise of fine dining revisions of classic British food. Not only did his team win, but Lo was also selected as the individual winner of the challenge for his masterfully executed strawberries and cream dessert. All in all, it was a strong showing for Lo, and one of the many strong showings that he has enjoyed this season. For that reason, he’s at the top of our odds table this week. 

Ali certainly wasn’t the worst contestant last week, but his team lost, and his dish wasn’t even the best of his teams. We’re giving him credit for the consistency he’s shown throughout the season, but last week’s outing was certainly not his finest work. 

Tom Goetter is His Own Worst Enemy

Initially one of the favorites of the early season, things have not been going according to plan for Tom Goetter. Of the past four episodes, his dishes have been deemed one of the worst three times. In this recent episode, Tom made a huge blunder by forgetting a basket of crucial vegetables behind, costing his team the victory, and causing Nicole Gomes to be sent packing. 

Tom seems to be cracking under the pressure of stiff competition from Buddha, Ali, and Amar. If he doesn’t get into a groove soon, he won’t last much longer in the competition.
