Can anyone beat Khristianne Uy? Going into next week’s season finale of The Taste, it doesn’t appear so.
Charlie Sheen’s personal chef — no, I’m not kidding — is the clear frontrunner to capture the cash and The Taste title after receiving three out of a possible four gold stars for her final dish on Tuesday night.
Team Malarkey member Khristianne, who has impressed Anthony, Nigella, Brian and Ludo with her culinary prowess each week, hit new heights during Tuesday’s “Seduction” challenge, creating a seafood dish everyone loved. She has all the momentum going into next week’s four-way face off between herself, Team Ludo’s Gregg and Sarah, and Team Anthony’s Diane.
The closest competitor to Khristianne in terms of culinary vision and great-tasting plates is Gregg, who has captured the last several quick challenge wins, but he has been burned for his arrogance. Not so Khristianne, whom I’ve been quietly cheering for since Week 2.
Tuesday’s “Seduction” test — to create a sensual, tasting plate — made mincemeat out of Team Nigella member Lauren, who admitted she didn’t know much about seduction because she’s a virgin; Team Ludo’s Paul, who had been doing just enough not to get booted over the past few challenges; and Team Malarkey’s Jeff, whose sushi plate was just mediocre enough to get him eliminated.
The Taste finale airs next Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on CTV Two and 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
