Stefan Richter has never been known for mincing words. The bald-headed Top Chef veteran's return to the show surely put some fear in the Season 10 contestants, as he made it to the finals once already -- but wasn't so lucky this season, as his way-too-crunchy pork ultimately did him in.
After being told for the first time ever to pack his knives and go, Stefan thinks that his past on the show was a bit of a burden. "I think the judges maybe judged a little harder than everybody else," he said in our exclusive BravoTV.com exit interview. "I did not deserve to go home ... Maybe it's a little bit of the All Stars extra kick in the ass."
Sticking to his guns, Stefan is confident that his cooking throughout the season was quality, and he's proud of his record -- having cooked more than 60 dishes during his multiple Top Chef stints.
"It wasn't like I didn't do good food. I was on quickfires, seven eight times on top," he says.
And what about his pick to take it all this season? "I think Brooke is going to win because she's smart. She can cook."
Will Stefan stay alive in Last Chance Kitchen? Watch below to see if he's still alive!
I agree with you, Stefan. You did not deserve to go home. Additionally, your dish in LCK was much more complex and showed greater skill than what Kristin demonstrated. I love your humour and hope to see more of you, perhaps in "After Top Chef." Your food looks delicious and you are highly entertaining.
I don't think you even deserved a second chance on the show. Go make lollipops. Auf venersain.....
sorry from what i have seen Sheldon has consistantly put out better food. Yes you are an ass, but you have not won challenges. Maybe they had to think who had a better chance of winning. I thought you should have been eliminated a long time ago.
It has become clear over the seasns that at times it is not the food that is judged but the personality.
