After trying all of the burgers (34 this year), the judges decided that the Sandwich King, Jeff Mauro made their favorite burger and he was awarded the judges champion.
The people's choice award goes to the burger that the people in the audience think is the best, and Michael Symon has taken home that award for the past three years. This year however, Bobby Flay edged out Michael Symon, and took home the people's choice award for his Green Chile Burger (pictured to the right.) Michael Symon came in 2nd place, and Guy Fieri showed he could hang, with a 3rd place finish in the vote. Guy did use his famous Donkey Sauce in his burger and he did show up dressed like this:
