Hosting live from Chicago, Lakshmi and the audience members were more pumped up than ever tonight for the season finale of Top Chef: Season 3.
Still in the mountains of Colorado, the three remaining cheftestants (Hung, Casey, and Dale) were preparing for their final shot at winning this competition.
The first morning, they were surprised by a delicious breakfast provided by room service, with a note attached. They were told to meet Lakshmi and Colicchio at the top of a mountain, and we all know the easiest way to get up there is a gondola ride.
After the chefs enjoyed a scenic tour of Colorado's breath-taking mountains, Lakshmi and Colicchio presented the final challenge. It took place at the world-famous Aspen Mountain Club, whose membership costs over $100,000 and whose waitlist is years long.
