Congratulations, Chef Tiffany Derry!

Chef Tiffany Derry racked up another dual Quickfire-Elimination Challenge win this week, taking home both $10,000 for her Quickfire win and a trip to Paris for her Elimination Challenge win.

For the Elimination, Chef Derry was tasked with deconstructing a gyro, which she did by serving the elements of the traditionally messy sandwich separately, prepared in a refined fashion. Judge Eric Ripert called it "the most elegant gyro" he'd eaten in his life and one of the CIA guys said he'd order it anywhere.

Tiffany's been creeping up on the so-called leaders like Carla did on her season. Good luck, chef.

I think she's going to win, both the cooking competition and for fan favorite.

She's by far my favorite. Food I'd most like to taste, and best personality.

Tiffany rocks, both from consistenty being near the top or winning, and to her level heade personality. Of all the chefs on this season's show, the chef that I would choose to eat their food regularly, clearly would be Tiffany. A bit sad that she got sent home. But Still the best chef on the show. just wasn't the best tonight (with the bad luck of her mussels freezing).

Tiffany has been the best overall chef this season, in terms of really flavorful, creative and consistent food. She is the chef that I would pick if I had the opportunity to eat regularly for both flavorful food and consistent delivery. She also brought the most solid level-headed personality to the kitchen, No drama, etc.
It is unfortunate she had the problems with the mussels freezing tonight that contributed to her being leaving the show.
Still the best chef this year, just was 5th tonight, when 5th sent you home.
