Tune in to see who has a chance at the life-changing grand prize – a head chef position, working under Executive Chef Kevin Hee at Gordon Ramsay Steak at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, NV.
The Top Four chefs reveal their favorite challenges this season:
Name: Justin Antiorio
Occupation: Sous Chef
Hometown: Lyndhurst, NJ
Justin’s favorite challenge: “My favorite challenge so far has been the Blind Taste Test, because I'm holding the record for the only contestant to go four for four.”
Name: Dana Cohen
Occupation: Chef Instructor
Hometown: River Vale, NJ
Dana’s favorite challenge: “Believe it or not, my favorite challenge so far has been the Signature Dish because you are essentially introducing yourself to Chef Ramsay on a plate. It's your first opportunity to showcase your creativity and cooking abilities.”
Name: Barbie Marshall
Occupation: Catering Chef
Hometown: Philadelphia, PA
Barbie’s favorite challenge: “My favorite challenge so far was Taste It, Make It, because it tested every one of my skills from taste, looks and texture to cooperating with another ‘cheftestant’ about those decisions under a time restraint.”
Name: Christina Wilson
Occupation: Chef de Cuisine
Hometown: Philadelphia, PA
Christina’s favorite challenge: “The Steak Night challenge was my favorite. It was the first time we really got to showcase our creativity with different cuts of meat. Since Gordon is opening a steakhouse, it added such an intense and exciting element of pressure. Although the red team lost and was punished by having to prep both kitchens for Steak Night, we spent the day butchering half of a 900 pound steer. I’d take that over a trip somewhere almost any day.”
