LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Last Chance Kitchen New Orleans winner last night Louis is prompting a Top Chef finale twist. Who wins the final Last Chance Kitchen New Orleans 2014, does Louis reach the finals, and who will win Top Chef New Orleans 2014 Season 11.
The Last Chance Kitchen New Orleans winner last night was Louis once again. So is Louis becoming the Kristen Kish of 2014? By accounts, he already has. Louis has now won seven Last Chance Kitchen episodes, a reported record for Bravo. Most recently he defeated Stephanie, two weeks ago, and Brian, last night.
By all indications, Louis Maldonado, 32, from Healdsburg, California, is expected to reach the Top 3 of Top Chef. As fans watched last season, when the main competition is down to two remaining contestants, Bravo brings back the Last Chance Kitchen winner. So how does this work?
The show’s main competition is down to Carlos, Nina, Shirley, and Nicholas. Last night, Brian was eliminated, even though viewers thought last week, and the week before, that Nicholas should be sent home. Even Nicholas thought he deserved to be sent home. So are producers holding onto Nicholas to create ratings between him and Carlos? So far the front three appear to Nina, Shirley and Carlos.
Bravo previews suggest next week that Nina makes a critical error and faces elimination. LALATE believes that without any major twist the final two should be Nina and Shirley, at which point Louis, if he is still winning, would return back into the competition.
