  • Trivia

    • First Run Fan Poll:

      Who would you have sent home in the High Stakes Quickfire?

      1. Ashley 25%
      2. Jesse 50%
      3. Robin 25%

      (all percentages are as of the end of the initial broadcast.)

      The winner of the weekly prize was Gina H. (Milledgeville, Georgia).

    • Continuity: While the chefs are waiting in the Stew Room before the winners are asked to go to Judges' Table, you can clearly see Kevin sitting in the corner with the others during one shot, but a few seconds later he is shown walking in.

  • Quotes

  • Notes

    • Tom loved Kevin's bacon jam so much, he did something he's never done before in all the years Judging Top Chef- he took the idea, developed his own version of the jam, and used it in a dish (softshell crab) served in his exclusive Tom: Tuesday Dinner menu.

    • While the chefs were shown a variety of live snails, they were given dead, precooked snails to work with for their QuickFire Challenge. This is because purging the cephalopods takes too long to accomplish in the space of a short time. Also, according to Tom Colicchio's blog they were precooked in order to level the field for those who had never worked with escargot before.
