...It's Fatima Ali! Though she was just a few challenges shy of the finale, the New York-based chef delighted the judges throughout the competition with her unique, Pakistan-inspired cuisine. Fatima's fun personality and excellent cooking impressed her fellow Cheftestants and judges alike, and it looks like her run in the kitchen had quite an impact with the viewers at home, as well.
Fatima thanked her fans on her Instagram account, writing, "Just finished my seven day chemo cycle and I’m so WIPED but I just want to thank EACH and every single person that voted for me for #fanfavorite. Here’s a pic of me and my beautiful mom @bravowwhl before the taping and announcement. Friends and family and support like I couldn’t imagine ♥️ you all make my heart sing."
