With the polls open over the weekend, the latest vote had the biggest turnout yet, with Dennis Lee edging Mourad Lahlou to join William Werner and Melissa Perello in conquering their scrappy underdogs. This week, as the first round continues through Friday, expect the remaining votes to get increasingly suspenseful as the gap closes between the seeds. Friendly reminder: let's keep the votes clean; eliminations will be enforced if necessary.
And today, the competition continues, pitting the one and only Hubert Keller against a fellow French looker in Luce's Dominique Crenn, RN74's Jason Berthold and Coi's Daniel Patterson. May the hottest chef win.
