      Crunch Time

    • This was technically the second $50,000 tournament held on Chopped. However, the first tournament was set up so that each winner would win $10,000 per round and advance to the next consecutive round of the competition. Thus, the total amount given in prize money was $50,000, but it did not all go to the same competitor.
      This tournament was set up as a bracket system; each winner from rounds one through four competed against one another in the grand finale. The winner of the grand finale then won the full $50,000 prize.
