Season 28 : Episode 13

Show Summary

Hosted by Ted Allen, Chopped challenges four promising chefs to turn a selection of everyday ingredients into an extraordinary three-course meal. In each episode, four chefs compete. The show is divided into three rounds; in each round, the chefs are given a basket containing between three and five unrelated ingredients, and the dish each competitor prepares must contain all of these ingredients. The competitors are also given access to a pantry and refrigerator, which is stocked with a wide variety of other ingredients. Each round is times, and the chefs must cook their dishes and plate them before the time elapses.
After each round, a rotating round of culinary judges critique the dishes based on presentation, taste and creativity. The judges then decide which chef is "chopped," and that chef is eliminated from the competition. By the Dessert round, only two chefs remain. When deciding the winner, the judges consider not only the dessert course, but the entire meal presented by each chef as a whole. The winner of the competition receives prize money, usually in the amount of $10,000.

  • Judges are so prissy

    2.0
    Aaron Sanchez goes on to a contestant about all of the flaws with her dish and then goes on to say there isn't enough on the plate to judge on. Clearly there was enough for him to make so many critical remarks. Prissy little girl, that Aaron.
  • The judges

    5.5
    The judges need to cut the crap on the salt I feel like sending them a box of salt just to shut them up. So what if they use wrong bread, forget an ingredient if it take good without it what does it matter. The judges are so aggravating to seasoned or not seasoned enough give people a break.
  • Definitely need racially diverse judges

    3.5
    Not being whiny. I have observed and commenting on what my eyes see and ears hear, Chopped needs to judge fairly and not be racist.
  • 2nd place again!!!

    5.0
    For the second week in a row,a black child has come in second place! I'ma keep it short n sweet, this shit blows! How can someone in the entree round makes 1 taco and that's considered an entree,she should have lost by that aspect alone! I've seen it done when all the are white! I really like this show,cause I like that these kids are really great chefs! I wish they would have had something like this when I was growing up. Clearly this show is racist!Tease them with second place and know one will notice! I'm really pissed,cause this child was representing Philly! I'm done watching! Food network..

    You need to do better by these kids!!

  • chopped and all food network shows r racist

    1.0
    as much as white people like to believe this world is racist and I hoped that the cooking competitions would not be, the only thing left on TV I was hoping I could watch, wrong. I see time after time blacks lose especially if they speak of being entrepreneurs or helping their families with the winnings. and I'm not whinning! and I will stop watching. I have seen a black woman get chopped for under cooked red meat, then when there wasn't a black person but a white person against a Latino person the white girl had under cooked fish and she won over the Latin guy. yes every episode has been racist unless the others were so blatantly bad then a black wins. they never have 4 blacks because that will mean a black will win. hummm. but they have 4 italians , 4 whites, 4 Latinos, NEVER 4 africans. . it's to be expected. it's white dominance due to the truth being that afrikans are the original people and huemans and had everything stolen but I will not go any further. I'm sure the white people will never understand.moreless
