  1. S16 (Kentucky): Justin forgot an entire plate of food. He was still recognized as one of the the top 3 dishes, but he was ineligible for the win.
  2. Lol at the blatant lies in this thread. This week was the first time Dawn made reference to her experiences as an African American female chef in the industry. I would know because I found it odd they didn't play up that angle more. They have done it in the past with season 15 runner-up, Adrienne, and it seems like an obvious route to go, and producers love an obvious, easy-to-follow plotline. They decided to go primarily with the Olympian storyline with Dawn. I have literally heard more about Shota being Japanese and people not understanding Japanese cuisine (probably like every episode
  3. I thought I was in the Shota fan thread for a second.
  4. It works out to one elimination per week. so 5 --> 4 --> 3 --> 2 (finale). Had someone won LCK like last season, it probably would have been a three-person finale. As I figured out above, Gabe, Dawn, and Shota are the top 3. I'm 100% sure on this. There is a clear shot of those three walking in the episode where they go digging for clams with Brooke for the quickfire, which is top 3 week. I'm certain Dawn is the finale. I cannot figure out the other chef. I'm leaning toward Gabe, but that's an educated guess. I think Dawn is winning. Her edit this episode was such a roller-coaste
  5. Yeah. They did a similar LCK finale challenge last year and Kevin (he won 2 out of the 3 rounds) ended up returning to the competition (I bolded the winner of each round): Round 1: Kevin vs Brian Round 2: Kevin vs Bryan Round 3: Kevin vs Gregory
  6. Well looks like there is no LCK winner, which is why I was having trouble trying to figure out where they come in. So that confirms a 2-person finale.
  7. I checked again. You are right! Not sure how I missed it. I must have checked 10 times lol, but it was late when I was checking. Although, we already deduced that Nina is a guest judge on the challenge where both Shota and Dawn (and Gabe) are still in so the Nina follow doesn't reveal any new information to me. I don't know about the "Tiffany being upset" theory cause she follows Gabe as well. Plus, it seems a little petty and far-fetched imo. I don't think grown people think that way. It's only Shota she doesn't follow. It could mean she didn't really interact with Shota as a finalist,
  8. I actually looked further into the Instagram follows thing and Nina actually only follows Dawn. She doesn't follow Shota or Gabe, even though both follow her. Then again, Sara also follows Nina so this seems really low-yield lol. The only big takeaway here is that she follows Dawn which means nothing tbh since we already know Dawn makes it that far. Another thing is that there is a tvguide description of the finale: "After 13 grueling weeks of competition, the chefs must create the best four-course meal of their lives for their final challenge at Willamette Valley Vineyards. They'll serv
  9. On tvguide, they have the descriptions for the rest of the season but skip over episode 11, "Blind Ambitions." It makes me wonder if this is when the LCK winner comes back and they didn't want to spoil it. Scratch that, I found the description on another site: "In teams of two, the chefs each take a turn entering the box where they blindly taste a dish created by guest judge Gabriel Rucker and then must try to re-create it." Episode 10 (Tournament of Tofu), we go from top 6 --> top 5 So the episode 11 description supports my theory that the LCK winner comes back because ho
