Will it end with a classic dose of sibling rivalry? Or will Kevin spoil the Voltaggio-family party?

Check out our contestant-by-contestant analysis on who will win.


Bryan Top ChefBryan Voltaggio
Why He'll Win: Bryan thinks things through very carefully. Often, his face remains stoic and unflinching, signaling that he's weighing every option. His cooking falls in the middle of the other two finalists -- not too crazy, but not that simple either. In other words: he's consistent. Sure, Bryan has never won a Quickfire challenge, and may not be the fastest contestant in the game. But with time on his side this time, we think his work could shine.
Why He Won't: The judges have been critical of Bryan's flavors at times this season; they've also have problems with his direction. And based on what we've seen this season, we don't expect Bryan to cook anything out of the ordinary, which could ultimately be his downfall.

Michael Top ChefMichael Voltaggio
Why He'll Win: More so than any other Chef this season, Michael cooks and thinks outside the box. So far, every time Michael has gambled, it's paid off, and to win 'Top Chef,' we're guessing that he'll whip up something pretty big. He also just won a car from last week's Quickfire challenge, so odds are in his favor heading into tonight's episode.
Why He Won't: Michael's strengths could ultimately work to his disadvantage in the finals. His risk taking can be too much at times, and his inspiration may read as confusing to the judges. As many people in Vegas know, you can't win every gamble.

Kevin Top ChefKevin Gillespie
Why He'll Win: Kevin can often see the bigger picture and incorporate that into his dishes. Even though he's been criticized for making "simple food," he always brings a wealth of foodie knowledge to the table -- ie, the reasons behind its origins, its purpose, the evolution of the style of cooking and the intentions of the challenge. We think that Kevin will use his vast knowledge of food culture to drive his dishes above the rest.
Why He Won't: It's really Kevin's competition to lose at this point, so unless he makes a costly mistake, he should take home the crown (and the loot). And he's been nothing but warm and genuine throughout the season, which hopefully won't come back to bite him in the end.

Our final prediction: Kevin will win 'Top Chef: Las Vegas,' while the Voltaggios are left to call it a draw between themselves, leaving everyone to wonder who was actually better than the other. Ah, the irony.
