Top Chef Finale Guessing Game – With Bravo Prizes!

Posted by on December 8 2009 in Contests, TV

tc computer gameCan you believe Wednesday evening marks the conclusion of another Top Chef season already? It seems like only yesterday an inebriated gansie was watching the season four premiere and inventing Top Chef live blogging. We’ve since ceased our own live blog, now that everyone and their mother is doing it. But this year Bravo is seriously upping the live blog game with a Top Chef Virtual Viewing Party, complete with fan questions and live commentary from this season’s chef-testants thoruhgout the finale. Check out the facebook page to RSVP.

AND we’re happy to announce the return of the Bravo/Endless Simmer Top Chef Finale Guessing Game. This year’s rules:

- Guess five ingredients. You get one point for each ingredient that is used by any of the chefs in the final episode. Double uses count — if all three chefs use your ingredient, you get three points.

- You can’t guess basic things like butter, garlic, salt or olive oil. If you’re guessing a major meat group like beef, pork or chicken, you have to be more specific, i.e. “pork belly,” “Kobe beef,” or “cornish game hens.” Guessing more unusual proteins like duck or tuna is acceptable.

- You get three bonus points for correctly predicting which chef will be the champion.

So, for example, here are my guesses:

1. Lamb

2. Red wine

3. Pine Nuts

4. Phyllo Dough

5. Pancetta

Winner: Kevin

The guessing game champ wins a Bravo gift card and a copy of Top Chef: The Video Game. Guess away in the comments.
