The secret ingredient in the final challenge was chicken. Ali Bouzari and Cat Cora were the judges of the secret ingredient challenge and they decided that Chef Nakajima would be the chef eliminated. Stephanie Izard won by a large margin on the scorecard with it being 33 to 24.
That leaves Jason Dady, Stephanie Izard, and Sarah Grueneberg as the final three chefs in Iron Chef Gauntlet. Next week, there will be a double elimination and the winning chef will be the chef that has a chance to become an Iron Chef on May 21st. They will compete against Bobby Flay, Masaharu Morimoto and Michael Symon in a three-round gauntlet where they will have to outscore the three chefs combined.
