Top Chef New Orleans Winner 2014: Who Wins Finale Results, Nina, Nick?

Top Chef New Orleans Winner 2014: Who Wins, Nina Compton Nicholas Elmi  in live results tonight Finale

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Who wins Top Chef New Orleans 2014, who is the Top Chef 2014 winner this season, does Nina Compton win, or does Nicholas Elmi deliver an upset in results tonight for February 5, 2014? The lack of Top Chef New Orleans spoilers online for weeks has prompted LALATE to predict that Nina would be in the finals. Last week that came true. After questions about who wins Last Chance Kitchen 2014, and who will make the final three, Bravo revealed last week that frontrunner Nina Compton originally from Saint Lucia is heading to the finals. But does Nicholas pull off an upset?

The Top Chef New Orleans 2014 winner tonight will be either Nina or Nick. And for weeks, Nina has been the apparent likely winner while Nick, according to Bravo’s on-screen polls, has not resonated particularly well among many viewers. From early in the season, it appeared likely that Nina had a chance to head to the finals. Early on, Tom asked “where is she from”? A native of St Lucia, her training has impacted the judges dramatically. Nina has trained in “French, Caribbean and Italian kitchens.” That breath of training has delivering surprising dishes weeks to week. But where does Nina work now? She is currently Chef de Cuisine, Scarpetta Miami, Fontainebleu Hotel, Bravo tells news.

Some critics have been impressed with the cooking this season but not necessarily the programming twists. As covered extensively on LALATE, last year the show brought back the Last Chance Kitchen winner into a final three format. This year, the Last Chance Kitchen winner, Louis Maldonado, was brought back into the show in the penultimate episode, but in a field of four not three contestants.

This week, the show ditches its live finale format from last season. It also gets rid of the multiple round of cooking, using a point system, employed last season in the finale. Rather Bravo explains that tonight’s episode features “the final two chefs” and their attempt to “execute the best service of their lives while opening pop-up restaurants to win the title and the bragging rights to be ‘Top Chef.’”

Nicholas Elmi has landed in the bottom several weeks, and has won several rounds of the competition. And where does Nicholas work now? “In the fall of 2013, Nicholas is opening French/American restaurant, Laurel, at 1617 East Passyunk Avenue in Philadelphia”. For live results tonight click HERE.

    I was not surprised. Why would they base one meal on an entire season. Statistically look at all of the top chef winners. Again I’m not surprised.

    With regret I watched the poor choice your committee made rewarding Nicolas temper and unprofessional behavior. It seems the criteria of selecting top chef are biased and questionable regarding gender and race. This is the last time I allow Bravo channel culture and values in my house. Bravo … you are switched off!

    Nina is a classy woman who cooked amazing food all season long, as well as, prepared a 6 course meal that seemed to be right on spot. Nick has shown himself to be a tempermental child in the kitchen, abused his servers verbally, and STILL could not properly season a dish. Honestly, this is the last time I watch Top Chef.

    Unreal. Nick was an * all season to his competitor’s then to his servers on the finale. Clearly to everyone who watched the show he did not deserve to win. Nina’s food was superior to his by far. Obviously it’s true that women have a tougher time getting the respect they command in the culinary world.Tom C. being the producer pulled his trump card on this one for sure. I’m no longer a fan of this show. Oh, and by the way I live in Vegas. No desire to ever visit Tom’s restaurant again. In my opinion way over priced and the food does not warrant it !!

    Wow! What an awful finale.I have a bad taste in my mouth after watching this. I have been watching this show for years and the one thing the judges always say is that seasoning is “Cooking 101″. They have sent people home for lack of seasoning and now here comes this arrogant, selfish fool that consistently under seasons everything and HE WINS? He should have gone home weeks ago when he made yet another under seasoned meal, but he sent another chef who didn’t deserve it,home. He may have won, but he is NO winner. Judges I am sorry that you were bullied into making the wrong choice. I will no longer be watching this show. If you can’t eat someone’s dish HOW can you be named TOP CHEF? . Boo Top Chef… Congratulations on continuing to encourage this fool’s DB behavior. But Frankly, Tom seemed to be wearing that crown tonight as well.. Top Chef please pack YOUR knives and go!

    What a crock. Nick should have gone home 2nd round. Nina was consistent. His duck was not palatable by everyone, are you kidding me. How could he win.

    Nina should have won top chef because she won more rounds then Nick. By watching the show I was very disappointed she didn’t win. She was a better chef then Nick.

    The judges really blew this one. Nina consistently won challenges throughout the season and was a gracious yet strong competitor. Nick consistently lost challenges , moaned, and whined all season long. He even had the poorest dish in a team challenge and let the judges send home a chef with a best dish because he had immunity. They offered him the opportunity to resign, but the low-life classless person that he proved himself to be let them send home the better chef. Guess the judges prefer chefs that shout curses and swear at their servers loud enough that the whole restaurant hears. After this ridiculous decision, I am through with Top Chef. The judges have lost my respect and all credibility. What a shame that a good show became so classless!

    I agree with the previous sentiments. A total farce! Why have a “Panel” when Tom Colicchio simply decides. On what criteria – no one knows.

    quite obvious that tom influence the end result when not only some of the clips showed the other judges favoring nina, but the viewers overwelmingly chose nine 85% to nick 15%. i lost all respect for the impartiality of the judging on this show. hands down, wrong person won this year.

    Nick is the worst choice Top Chef could have made not even his teams liked or respected him if he should open his own restaurant I will bet it will not be successful he must be a very insecure and unhappy person I have watched Top Chef since the beginning and I an done:”"”"”"”" forever

    I’ve been watching Top Chef for years now, and was dissapointed in they’re decision. All along Nina was clearly a superior chef. I was rooting for her and thought for certain she would not only rack up another female win but, also be the first winner of color in Top Chef history. Sadly, that was not to be. I told my husband weeks ago, if she does not win I’m officially done with this show. I plan on keeping my word. Nina you were robbed!

    Tom should not be a judge.. He is bias and clearly manipulated the outcome…
