Bravotv.com: What did you think of the other chefs’ dishes?
Everything was very good even if I did not like some of them, but it is a personal opinion so I really can't say much.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised it was you and Stefan in the bottom two?
He got more critique than me for the dishes and for the cocktail, but at the end he did two New Orleans dishes and he got to move on. He is a great chef. He will win.
