Who Should Win Top Chef All-Stars?

Tonight is the moment we've all been waiting for: the season finale of Top Chef All-Stars. The battle to see who is the better chef is between TC Chicago's Richard Blais, known for his scientific ways, and TC Vegas's Mike Isabella, who's been taken less seriously but is on a roll. My money is on Richard simply because he seems like the better chef. How about you? Who do you think is going to win?

Ugh. Mike is such a misogynistic jerk, I hope he loses. He constantly dissed on the final females' dishes, though he's cooked similar meals himself. Talk about a sore loser: "Psh. THAT won?" Yeah, well, maybe it tasted good Mike, unlike that crap you put together. Also, stealing Richard's dish earlier this season pretty much put him in my ass panda zone. So Richard gets my vote (though I would've preferred Antonia)

POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT OK, this isn't really even a spoiler, but I don't want anyone to read more than they want to and get upset. I've been hearing for quite a while that Mike wins because he's opening his new restaurant in D.C. (He was the chef at Zaytinya, one of Jose Andres' restaurants, until relatively recently.) The timing just seems to work out for when he quit Zaytinya and started to really focus on opening Grafiato (as far as coinciding with when filming was done on the show). Make of that what you will, but that's what I've been hearing since before the season aired.

I think if Mike wins, there will be some major upheaval among Top Chef viewers.

Richard might have a stroke when he finds out what the last challenge will be....he worries too much....although I think the editing has something to do with that.......

I agree! I'm excited to see how it goes down.

Even though Richard is the better chef, I want Mike to win because I don't like Richard's attitude. He's too inside his head, which is annoying, and he's a really sore loser. I think it would be a huge upset if Mike pulled out the win over Richard. Probably won't happen, but it would be comical if it did.
