I know it hasn't aired yet, but I'm just trying to start a trend of episode-focused Next Iron Chef threads like we had with Top Chef.
So as to not completely waste first post:
We know the cheftestants will be narrowed down to a final four tonight. Besh, Cosentino, and Symon are almost a sure thing. Besh and Cosentino have both won battles, and the judges made it clear that cumulative performance is important. Symon doesn't have any wins, but he has impressed me the most among the remaining chefs. Sanchez could take the fourth spot if he doesn't screw up the timing again. Kaysen will most likely go home tonight.
