Spoiler alert: This article contains major spoilers for Season 3 of Next Level Chef.
Most of us can agree that Fox’s Next Level Chef is food television gold! Aside from having British restaurateur Gordon Ramsay at the helm with Nyesha Arrington and Richard Blais who all serve as mentors and judges, the competition series spotlights proficient chefs from across the country.
Interestingly, the competition set consists of various floors with different kitchens that are meant to test the chef's ability to adapt and thrive in undesirable conditions.
Season 3 of the series features chefs ranging from home cooks to notable social media chefs. And since the competition is stiff, folks wonder who could cook for the occasion and who fell flat.
So, who was eliminated from Next Level Chef in Thursday's episode? Here’s what to know.
Who was eliminated on Season 3, Episode 5 of 'Next Level Chef'?
After Izahya's dish wins Team Ramsay's team safety for the night, Lauren and Ari are put into the elimination round. Despite judges Nyesha and Richard liking the taste of Ari's butter chicken dish, it doesn't hold up against Lauren's, and Ari goes home.
Who was eliminated on Season 3, Episode 4 of 'Next Level Chef'?
Up until now, the eliminations have been from the audition stage. Now, things are heating up, and in Episode 4, we have just one eliminated contestant, Matt. After the draft divides up the chefs into three teams — Gordon's, Richard's, and Nyesha's — they all get to cooking. Matt from Richard's team, and Chris from Gordon's team face off in the elimination challenge at the end of the episode. Unfortunately, Matt doesn't make it through, and he goes home.
Who was eliminated on Season 3, Episode 3 of 'Next Level Chef'?
After serving an "unpleasant" chicken liver pasta, Jennie heads open early in the third episode of Season 3. Summer, who is six months pregnant, leaves the episode second after a less than successful attempt at clams with cauliflower puree lands her a one-way ticket back home. Charity leaves last, after she "overcooks" her prawns.
Who was eliminated on Season 3, Episode 2 of 'Next Level Chef'?
Things are still intense in Season 3, Episode 2 of Next Level Chef. And even after wowing the judges for part of the episode, multiple people go home. Daniel fails to impress Nyesha with his cauliflower soup with poached shrimp, so he's sent home early on. Then, Monika delivers an "underwhelming" turkey breast Bok choy to Gordon and she heads home. The third and final contestant to get the boot in Episode 2 is Joe.
Who was eliminated on Season 3, Episode 1 of 'Next Level Chef'?
As we all know, the premiere episode of any reality competition show is like a massacre in terms of eliminations. And during the third season premiere of Next Level Chef, we see 24 chefs start out at the ground floor of the multi-level kitchen scenes. This time around, there are a handful of social media chefs who are also competing. They’ve wowed Gordon in some way prior to the show, and now they’re here to prove themselves.
Sadly, one of those social media chefs, Brittany, goes home before the episode is over. And at the end of the premiere, another Brittnee (though spelled differently, clearly) is eliminated. We also see TikTok Chef Tim get the ax.
At the end of the season, only one winner can take home a one-year mentorship and $250,000 cash prize. So yeah, we’d say the stakes (steaks?) are pretty high.
Who will get eliminated next? Come back for weekly updates and watch Next Level Chef Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on FOX.
