Top Chef's Brooke: I Didn't Like the Finale Format

Brooke Williamson was riding a three-elimination challenge win streak heading into the Top Chef finale, but the Los Angeles-based chef came up short to Kristen — or more specifically, two rounds short after Kristen took the title 3-1 in a best-of-five contest. "I didn't love the format of how they judged in rounds," she tells TVGuide.com. "I felt like it should've been a collective judging based on an entire meal. It would've been nice to actually put my dessert out." What was her planned dessert? Does she regret making those fried chicken wings? And does she have any more phobias? Find out below. //www.tvguide.com/News/Top-Chef-Brooke-1062100.aspx?rss=breakingnews

Top Chef's Kristen: "It Doesn't Feel Real"

It's hard to believe, but Kristen Kish forgot Last Chance Kitchen existed on Top Chef . "I thought I was done when I got eliminated," she tells TVGuide.com. "And I was fine with that. I took responsibility [for Restaurant Wars], but I also felt like I deserved to still be in it." Fortunately for the Boston-based chef, Last Chance Kitchen does exist, and she won five straight face-offs to return to the regular show. And unlike last season's LCK winner Beverly, Kristen made it all the way to the final and won it all, beating Brooke 3-1 in head-to-head rounds. What is she going to do with the $125,000? And what does she think of the new finale format? Find out below. //www.tvguide.com/News/Top-Chef-Winner-Kristen-1062024.aspx?rss=breakingnews
