Tournament of Champions Season 2 Winner

Tonight at 8pm ET of Food Network is the season 2 finale of Tournament of Champions which will be two hours long. There are still five chefs remaining who are competing for bragging rights, a new SUV and a special mystery prize.  Jet Tila and Antonia Lofaso have a quarterfinal rematch after tying last week and the three contestants that are already in the semifinals are: Maneet Chauhan, Brooke Williamson and Darnell Ferguson.  The semi-finals of season 1 had Antonia Lofaso, Brooke Willamson, Amanda Freitag, and Maneet Chauhan, so the results are similar to last year.


For the semi-finals tonight, the winner of Jet Tila vs. Antonia Lofaso will face Brooke Williamson and Maneet Chauhan will face Darnell Ferguson.  Then the two winners of those match-ups will face off in the finale to determine the winner of Tournament of Champions season two.
