Speaking of Bravolebrities, @kellyliken may have been eliminated in last week's episode, but that didn't stop her from joining in on some Talk Bubble action! "Singapore was amazing," she said. "My favorite? Chili Crab!" Apparently Padma liked the chili crab too according to @ericripert who whipped out his iPhone to tweet to the Bubble: "Padma is emotional about chili crab in Singapore." But it wasn't chili crab that had the Talk Bubble emotional – it was Angelo's sudden illness that threatened to force him out of the competition. MsMegan777 said she was, "nervous about how this #TopChef finale is going. Angelo could have won, easily, but being sick may be his downfall." Not everyone was so sympathetic to Angelo's plight, like Talk Bubbler LibertyJoy who asked, " So Angelo's sick....does Hung get to go for the money??!!" And @latinabug_nj seemed to disagree about Angelo being a shoo-in when she tweeted "Ed looks hot and skinny!" Time to put back on that yellow dress, Ed!
In the end, it was Team Kevin that would prevail when their Cheftestant took the Top Chef crown. Bubbler Susan Gooch Spence was practically foaming when she presaged the come-from-behind win, shouting from the rooftops "KEVINKEVINKEVINKEVINKEVIN." Former Cheftestant @kellyliken must have felt the big win in the air as well when she tweeted "I want to eat Kevin's "Singapore Sling 2010", looks so refreshing!" just minutes before the big announcement.Tweeter @aaronhoskins thought the wrong man won, "Ed got robbed. At least it wasn't Angelo." Good thing @ndnbhar was there for a little diplomacy, "Either way, these three should be so proud and humbled to even be in Singapore cooking for such amazing chefs and people!!"
And with that, the curtain closed on Top Chef D.C. Congratulations to all the great cheftestants featured this season! And congratulations to you Talk Bubblers on a night to remember!
I am SOOO glad Kevin won. I screamed when they announced his name. He TOTALLY deserved it. I don't think Angelo had a chance. It was between Kevin and Ed. I think Angelo has issues. I question his physical illness.
Bravo Kevin....your personality (thought combative if you thought it was necessary) was low key and you did run under the radar. You are perhaps not your own best PR guy. But you were the guy with the goods ...I like ED a whole lot, but I think it was because he seemed the only one who really appreciated what a great person Tiffany was and I loved her personality and work.
I must say you always talked about your family and that you were doing this for them. I think your kindness and caring about your family brought you mucho lucki. When you told us that you knew and had worked with MichaelV, I am sure most were surprised as I was...Michael is so volatile and you are so laid back. Congrats and live the dream!
I never figured out how to do the Bubble Talk. I wish it had been a live chat instead. It was awesome to see so many people all over the country watching TC - goes to show it is an emmy award winning show. While surprised that Kevin won, I am happy. Kevin will put the money to good use. On a previous episode the chefs were talking about what they would do with the money and Kevin was the only one to say he would open a resturant. I would like to see TC to be a competition of only chefs who had not yet opened up a resturant. OliveAnne FloridaFan
