Could Georgia peaches be on the menu for the finale? Maybe the Atlanta Housewives will drop in as guest judges.
Everything’s bigger in Texas, including competition. Is the city of BBQ and Spamarama the final stop for our chefs? A little Tex-Mex flavor could really heat things up.
Is the home of country music and the annual Food Industry Truck Driving Championship where the newest Top Chef will be crowned? Who wouldn’t want to see Dolly Parton at Judges’ Table?
Blending romance and classic French cuisine, Paris could be a strong contender for the finale. It was even the host of this year's Seafood Summit. Judge Eric Ripert would certainly approve.
The tropical home of samba would surely add some flavor to the finale. Could our finalists be cooking up a Brazilian beach party?
Will the chefs be rolling out fresh pasta and uncorking some Chianti on the finale? Perhaps our cheftestants will battle for the title in the city of gladiators.
Are Tom and Padma taking the chefs to the Pacific Northwest for the Bite of Seattle festival? The Space Needle would be the perfect location for the final challenge.
With its mix of culinary influences ranging from British to Indonesian, Singapore would be a spicy option. July is also the time when they hold the annual Singapore Food Festival.
We’ve seen a great deal of Asian influences in the dishes this season, making Tokyo a logical choice. The city is also hosting the Japan International Seafood & Technology Expo this summer. Will our judges be using chopsticks during the final challenge?
Between moose hunting and the impending nuptials of Bristol and Levi, Wasilla is quite a hotspot (despite the temperature). It may be the perfect place for one cheftestant to put the rest of the competition on ice.
