After four tumultuous rounds, four celebrity competitors have emerged as the best in their class and will move onto the Chopped Tournament of Stars finale. Star athletes, Rachael vs. Guy veterans, comedians and actors have competed and shown that any one of them can cook transformative meals out of mystery baskets. But only one will walk away the champion and winner of $50,000 for the charity of his or her choice. Who will it be? Watch the finale on Sunday, April 6 at 9|8c to find out. But until then, fans, here’s your chance to show your support in the fan vote.
Brandi Chastain proved she’s as much of a competitor in the kitchen as on the soccer field. Her fearless attitude helped her excel in the Chopped kitchen, and now she’s ready for the finale.
Carnie Wilson came in with an axe to grind for not winning her season of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off. Though she seemed rattled at times, she proved that no one’s food could match her comforting dishes.
Gillian Vigman showed she wasn’t just all fun and games when it came to competing. For her, cooking the mystery baskets was a lot like improvising in a comedy skit — she was able to run with whatever, turning out strong dishes that beat out her colleagues.
Michael Imperioli became a menace in the kitchen, pulling out all the stops and showing no fear when it came to using technically advanced equipment. The judges were beyond impressed as were his fellow competitors.
