Harold passes the title to Ilan Hall, and he's totally OK with that.

I'll say this: I'm proud to pass the torch. It's been a great experience. Ilan is good kid. I think he's going to be a really strong chef. I feel good about being able to focus on the next phase of my life. And I have to say, that next step is nuts. Getting a restaurant open is unlike anything I've ever done. I already know how to run a kitchen, and now I'm learning a lot about...paperwork. I have to say thank you to all of you. You're a dedicated fan base, and you should know how much I appreciate it. It means a lot. Until next time, Harold.

I was shocked and disappointed that Illan emerged the winner. I agree that he is so undeserving of the title. Appalled by the childish behavior of most of the contestants. in particular, Ilan and Betty were downright vindictive and spiteful. Definitely not a case of 2 negatives make a positive.

Late in the day!

Oh Harold, a pity that you passed the torch on to someone so clearly undeserving of the title.
