While not everyone agrees with the judges decision to award the Top Chef on Bravo win to Kevin Sbraga, Tom Colicchio recently blogged about the win and why he was chosen. Keep reading for more details!
Top Chef‘s Tom Colicchio blogged about Kevin’s win and the fact that some folks thought Kevin had an advantage due to Michael Voltaggio being his sous chef as Kevin and Michael had worked together in the past. In his statement about the possibility of an advantage Tom says “No. Kevin got lucky in being paired with Michael because they knew one another and had enjoyed working together in the past, but thatâ€™s the extent of it. One could just as easily argue, for example, that Angelo got lucky in being paired with Hung, who worked quickly and efficiently while Angelo was flat out. Folks will also argue that Angelo was disadvantaged by being sick. Surely. But would he have won had he been well? I donâ€™t think it would have made a difference. Kevinâ€™s food was the best weâ€™ve had in any finale. It was exciting.”
Tom Colicchio goes on to say that Kevin’s deserved the win and as he breaks down every dish for us, Kevin is clearly ahead of the rest on each course in the finale. And Tom wasn’t the only one who knew Kevin had the win, despite Kevin thinking he had not won, according to Tom, the past season winners knew Kevin was headed to victory. In his blog, Tom said “And it was clear that night, too. In fact, the winners of the prior seasons all said that they knew as the evening progressed that Kevin was the clear winner.” For a full break down of each course, you can visit Top Chef on Bravo and check out Tom’s blog, he explains it in full detail!
