LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Top Chef New Orleans 2014 winner is set to be announced over a two part finale. Who won Last Chance Kitchen 2014, who wins Top Chef New Orleans 2014, what are Top Chef spoilers saying about a possible winner, and is Nina Compton the frontrunner? For Top Chef fans, a programming change erupted last week and continued tonight. During the 2013 season, Top Chef fans watched as the Last Chance Kitchen winner was brought back into the competition against two chefs (Brooke and Sheldon) remained. But tonight, the part one Top Chef finale starts with Last Chance Kitchen winner Louis Maldonado facing three remaining contestants.
Previous Louis defeated Carlos in the final Last Chance Kitchen online episode to air this year on BravoTv.com. Now Louis is back into the competition. And fans tonight get to learn if he can do what Kristen Kish achieved in the season finale in 2013.
But while Kristen re-entered to face two remaining contestants – arguably a more exciting programming tactic – tonight Louis reenters to face three chef-testants. They are Nicholas Elmi, Nina Compton and Shirley Chung. Unfortunately they have been no good online Top Chef 2014 spoilers this season suggesting who might win. But by all indications, Nina appears to be the front runner with Louis as a potential candidate as well. UPDATE: Eliminated tonight were Louis and Shirley.
