    Well, everybody the final four. In New Orleans, which had a setback during Katrina. And in the, aftermaths. Is trying to recover. We see Carla, Hosea, Stefan, and Fabio in the, final four. And they are greeted by well-known chef, Emille Lagasse. But the twist is, they have three ex-eliminated chefs. Including Leah and Jeff. Jeff wins the first, challenge but the catch is. He must win, no second place or beyond. In order to stay in the game. We see the final four, really in a panic mood. But Carla wins and secures her place, in the final three. Along with Hosea and Stefan. As Fabio, he was entertaining and really missed. Fresh off her honeymoon, Gail is back. Much more better than, that annoying Toby Young.moreless

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Fabio: (playfully, when told that he's eliminated, and Stefan's in the finale) If you don't win, I'll kick your ass! You have no idea!

    • Hosea: (when Stefan says that Fabio dressed as a woman for Halloween) Do you always go as a woman?
      Fabio: Yes. The first year I was Catwoman, the second year I was Wonder Woman. You gotta have balls to dress as a woman!
      Hosea: Well, they can't be too big or they won't fit in the thong.

  • NOTES (2)

    • The chefs are asked to cater a dinner for the Krewe of Orpheus. The Krewe of Orpheus was instituted in 1993, and is therefore a relatively recent addition to the line up of parade krewes. They put on one of the largest Mardi Gras parades in the famous Carnival celebrations of New Orleans every year. The krewe was founded in 1993 by Harry Connick, Jr. and Sr., along with Sonny Borey.

    • Fabio says he was watching this episode air in Tom's restaurant Craftsteak, and was very touched when everyone in the restaurant booed emphatically when he was eliminated.
