With a tie breaker to kick off the Tournament of Champions finale, many Food Network fans are wondering what food TV chaos Guy Fieri has in this episode. Although some of the unpredictable moments have been questionable, everyone is waiting to see if Brooke Williamson retains her championship belt or will another chef snatch it away.
According to the Food Network, the Tournament of Champions finale features the following:
"Guy Fieri welcomes the last remaining chefs for the tournament’s epic semifinal battles. The final two chefs left standing face off in one more head-to-head battle, with the winner taking home the championship belt, a brand-new SUV and a special mystery prize."
Looking the five, yes, five not four, remaining chefs, it might be hard to pick an odds on favorite. Given that Antonia LoFaso and Jet Tila have to battle again to earn a semi-final berth, this scenario can be beneficial for both chefs. When a chef can get on a roll in a competition, that chef could steamroll a path to the finals, and even the championship.
Overall, this Tournament of Champions finale will have an unexpected outcome. The whole season has been leading to towards that storyline. From Amanda Freitag losing in the first round to a quarterfinal tie, no one could have seen those scenarios. The idea that Brooke Williamson could repeat as champions seems highly unlikely.
In some ways, everyone is wondering what the randomizer will hold. While some people were unhappy with Guy Fieri “unsticking” it in the last episode, people are wondering how “random” it really is. Still, the secret ingredients from Iron Chef were always hidden, but were part of a list. Maybe the chefs were given some hints and there have been no repeats. Could the chefs have an ace up their sleeve?
No matter the final outcome, everyone will be watch the Food Network Tournament of Champions finale. Who will walk away with the belt remains to be seen. Do you have a prediction?
