Top Chef spoiler alert!
It seems that the obsessed fans may have been onto something yesterday. News of Ilan's quitting his line cook job at Casa Mono set into motion speculation of his Top Chef win. The finale's not till next Wednesday, but last night, when Padma was done slurping poi off her fingers for the camera, the judges sent home Elia and Sam. (Chow.com has podcast interviews with the losers, who are thinking of opening a restaurant together!).
Meanwhile, Ilan and Marcel are left to bitch-fight it out. At first, we felt bad that this is exactly the opposite of what we expected. But then again, the upset is a producer's wet dream. But we have to admit we're not particularly rooting for either of the little men. What about you?
