Reactions to Top Chef Texas Finale Part 3

In this final episode, we were first treated to a mini competition between former cheftestants and renowned chefs Marco Canora and Barbara Lynch as they fought for eight coveted sous chef positions. Paul ended up with Barbara Lynch, Ty-Lor, Chris Crary, and Keith, while Sarah got Nyesha, Heather, Grayson, and Stone, Tyler Stone. (Remember him? Nope, me either.)

After Paul and Sarah made their choices, the teams planned menus and did a ton of shopping because the goal was to dazzle 100 guests and judges with four carefully-crafted, amazing, stupendous dishes.

Paul stayed in his comfort zone, creating a Japanese-influenced Asian menu. Sarah mostly stuck with her Italian style, but added in some German touches. The judges were blown away by each course - despite small issues here and there - and had a difficult decision to make.

In the end, Paul's menu won out, and he was awarded the title of Top Chef, with all of the accompanying goodies.

88% of voting Bravo viewers thought Paul should win. What did you think? Please leave a comment!

I was SO glad Paul won! The way the show was edited, it made it look like Sarah might win. Paul won so many challenges throughout the season. I only caught up with some of the prior episodes yesterday during the Top Chef marathon - I didn't realize how often Sarah was in the bottom. She did obviously finally find her zone, but Paul deserved to win. I wish them both the very best.
