'Top Chef Masters' Reveals Three Chefs Competing in the Finale (VIDEO)

'Top Chef Masters'On the semi-finals of 'Top Chef Masters' (Wed., 10PM ET on Bravo), the four remaining chefs got to cook a buffet-style meal for service personnel coming back from tours of duty and their families. Each had to incorporate into the meal the dish their serviceman or woman missed the most while away.

It was a fitting tribute to our fighting forces as 'Top Chef Masters' heads into the homestretch, though the challenge was decidedly more difficult for some chefs than others, as it pulled them farther from their comfort zones, and some of the favored dishes were a little less-than-ordinary.


With a dish that had to incorporate Hawaiian flare to it, including a raw fish (Poke), it was Naomi's rice salad that did her in and sealed her fate. But with $25,000 earned toward her charity, she can be proud of her accomplishments on the show. And now she can go home and yell at her dad some more, as she did in the earlier challenge.

I am tiring of these weak minded critics who are criticing these outstanding chefs for just doing what the challenge forces them to do. They are not operating on an even playing field when they are asked to cook to please a particular client. Give them all the same challenge and judge them, better yet let some of these critics have a few hours to prepare something to meet the taste buds and requirements of a client. I will probably not watch next time if this is how they are going to operate this show. I would think some of these chefs are glad to go home because they are not cooking their food in these challenging situations, they are being asked to please someone else's palate in unique circumstances. Ridiculous premise with excessive and unrealistic criticism from the panel who at times don't seem to be aware of the challenge. Like two weeks ago when the chef had to prepare a salad course using beer and pretzel. The judges acted like, OMG, where did that come from!

Really sad to see these quality chefs reduced to such low levels and then criticize them when they are not preparing their food as an appetizer, entree or dessert, but rather to meet the expectation of some client. It seems that the clients have always been happy, but the pea brained critics don't understand that this is what the chefs were asked to do. This has gone on week after week to the point I can't take it anymore.

I am a TOP CHEF fan in a big way, but this challenges my sense of fair play to the point that I am close to the edge.
