Executive Producer Shauna Minoprio gives you the insider scoop.

I have no idea what Tom, Gail and Padma are writing on their blogs but from a production this judges table was a marathon. I think one camera operator might actually have fallen asleep while shooting because it went on so darn long. You know when judges sometime say 'it was a really difficult decision blah blah' - well this one was a doozy. I'm thinking there might be a bit more hate mail coming our way because of the decision they finally made... maybe I'll just head back to Hawaii for a while...

Late in the day!
Late in the day!

Marcel! If you're reading this, I just want to tell you that I am sorry you didn't win. I think you're the more deserving candidate with your creativity and talent. I don't know where you and Ilan are at right now but I'm pretty sure you're more successful. Ilan is not as good a chef as you. He is less creative. And he's so childish and a bully too! Good luck to you Marcel and chin up!
