Christina has been the oddsmakers favorite to win the fourth season of Hell's Kitchen from the seasons beginning and just hours before Tuesday's (July 1) finale is installed by oddsmakers at online sportsbook BetUS.com as 2/5 odds favorite to win the coveted Senior Chef position at Gordon Ramsay's new Los Angeles restaurant. However, her winning isnât a guarantee as shown by the late season charge put on by her competitor, 47 year old Petrozza of Charlotte, N.C., who is holding down 7/4 odds for an upset.
"I like his 'Petrozza' chances," said Point-Spreads.com reality television analyst Reno Goldberg. "I expect Petrozza to win the job based on his experience, skill level and overall demeanor. Nothing seems to rattle the guy and if I had a multi-million dollar restaurant to run I am not going to throw in a culinary student like Christina to head the kitchen."
Tuesdayâs finale will also feature the return of six previously cut contestants to help in the kitchen. It will be very interesting how some of these former working relationships or 'lack of' will affect the outcome.
Last week Christina and Petrozza edged out Corey to enter Tuesdayâs episode as the final two remaining contestants.
The winner of the cooking competition will earn a coveted senior chef position at Chef Ramsay's new restaurant, Gordon Ramsay at the London West Hollywood, which is scheduled to open in summer 2008.
