So far during Season 12 we've seen a handful of chefs pack their knives and go -- but they have one more chance to redeem themselves.
Starting after Episode 8 on December 10, the eliminated chefs will have a shot to win their way back into the finale -- all they have to do is cook well enough to impress Tom Colicchio and keep winning to hold their place in the finale. (A feat that can be done, just ask Kristen Kish).
But it's Top Chef so of course the fourth season of our Emmy-winning series will be full of twists. You'll just have to wait until December to find out what they'll be.
Until then, catch up on what the chefs that will be competing as they sit down to talk the crush of defeat with Richard Blais.
