  • Recreate a gourmet French dish in the quickfire, and the chefs serve French culinary teachers in the elimination challenge.

    Hung nailed the quickfire challenge, proving his technical superiority, but has yet to prove his creative prowess. The two best from the challenge were Casey and Hung. The judge (who's dish they were recreating) admitted that he wanted to say Casey wins because he is a man and she is beautiful, but in the end went with the truth: Hung. This proves my point about Casey. She's an average chef with above average charm and looks, and definitely influences the judging on the show with her latter qualities and not the first. In the elimination challenge they are required to use 3 ingredients, chicken, potato, and onion. Brian suprisingly comes through with a non-seafood dish that is really good and everyone liked, although his phaesent sausage upstaged the chicken which is why he didn't win. Dale and Sarah really messed their dishes up, Dale trying to do to much, and Sarah again, not being bold enough. This time it was enough to send her home, which is dissapointing because I think she is the best leader that Top Chef has ever had. If only she was not so reserved when making her own dishes. Casey gets trumped again by Hung's superior technical skills and he is the winner of the elimination challenge. (note: he didn't win a trip anywhere in the world or a computer like Casey did when she won.)
