Top Chef Review: The End Is Here!

It’s the finale of Top Chef and we get to see Paul and Sarah duke it out. Its been on a long road with what began as 29 chefs that got whittled down to two. On the way, we’ve seen Pee-Wee Herman grace the Top Chef kitchen, we’ve experienced el Diablo in human form (Heather, of course), we’ve seen Bev rise up against the forces of bitchy women trying to hold her down, we’ve seen sweet potato fences fall hopelessly apart (that from the creator of the edible cigar), we’ve been through more mass cooking challenges than any Top Chef audience should have to handle and we tried out a little side dish called Last Chance Kitchen, which ended up being a welcome addition to a season packed with “eh” so let’s begin to end, shall we?

Pack your bags, we’re headed to Austin! It’s the third stop on our cooking tour through the Longhorn State. One chef that is super excited to represent is Paul. Our resident worrier feels the weight of the free world as he aims to make Austin proud. In a touching moment, we learn that Paul found his true calling in Austin. He woke up one morning in a room filled to the brim with dog deuces and decided he needed to end living life as a small time pot lord. Flashback to Paul standing in a tux next to a bright red sports car, which kinda reminded me of the final scene in Sixteen Candles where hunky Mike Baker melts hearts standing next his sweet ride.
