From the elimination Quickfire to the high-intensity Elmination Challenge, Hubert Kuller felt the pressure.

I must admit, things got funky on last episode -- how about Matthew’s gravy foam? And where Rebecca was told to pass the mic!

Now seven chefs remain to compete! And interesting how Sally hangs with the boys because she thinks she is better than the girls, and how Katzie does not like it and she promises that she will kick her butt? Time will tell us. Also, getting deeper into the competition Chris and Matt are getting even closer now and promising that they will watch each other’s back! I think it is cool and definitely part of a competitive strategy.

Let’s get to the Quickfire Challenge: guest Judge Mark Israel, baker and owner of the Doughnut Plant in NY, definitely a pro and huge donut lover. Since the donut can be found in so many flavors, shapes and size, today’s challenge is: create the perfect donut! And in order to pump up the chefstestants, a $10,000 is offered to the winner, but no more immunity from now on! And what a surprise when Johnny announced that the chef who will serve the least favorite donut, will be eliminated, talking about pressure now. But that’s what I love about Top Chef, always the most unexpected! The hardest now is getting through pressure!
