General chatter - Who will win Top Chef?

I'm just a wee bit obsessed with Top Chef. Who do you think will win?
I'm betting on Richard, though I would love to see a woman win for once.

I hope Stephanie wins.
I'm thinking Stephanie also :)

Antonia was my favorite but now that she's gone, I'm pulling for Stephanie.

I love Stephanie too, but I also like Richard a lot. I think Richard may have the most talent, and he's very humble. I'd love to see the two of them in the finals!

Neither Richard nor Stephanie would surprise me. Both have been consistently strong all season and both are also great team players and humble. They have learned from critiques and have shown growth. Lisa shows contempt at every judges' table. I hate seeing her stand there with her arms crossed and that sour look on her nasty face. She has no interest in learning..just getting ahead at any cost. I really felt that it should have been her and not Dale a few weeks back. Antonia made a few key errors this past week..namely plating everything on one plate so that her undercooked peas ruined every dish and not just the one. Had she done things differently she would have been safe as she would have made all of her food more palatable. She shot herself in the foot trying to hard for a certain theme.
Lisa was obnoxious when she got mad at Richard and Stephanie for not congratulating her and I felt that Richard's comment about "winning the bronze medal" was right on point. Apparently a few more choice words get shared this week and maybe people will finally own up to their true feelings.
I'd be happy with either as the winner...they both have worked so hard.

I'm with everyone else -- I'd like to see either Richard or Stephanie win, because they both seem like not only great chefs but truly nice people. It would be pretty hard to like Lisa, with the bad attitude she carries around. I like Richard's creativity and I like how Stephanie is just always consistently good without making a big deal out of herself.

I love the show, but couldn't bear to watch the first half of final 4... The pig thing really bummed me out, I can't watch that stuff. I knew w/in minutes I wouldn't be watching... So is it Richard, Steph and Lisa ? Hmmm I prob could check out the website, but ....
I think Richard is going to win... I couldn't stand him first few challenges, but he's grown on me...
Sorry, bit of a hijack.. but is anyone watching ****'s Kitchen... ? YES CHEF !! OMG... Was Matt a bit crazy or what ?...

Julee, I'm totally with you on the Lisa thing. She's completely closed off to any criticism, and she doesn't realize that Tom, Padma, Gail, and Ted give really useful feedback at Judge's Table.
Like I said, I would love to see a woman, namely Stephanie, win in the end, but I wouldn't be surprised if Richard is the winner.

I hope its Stephanie but wouldn't have a problem if its Richard. I really like that show.
Does anyone watch "who wants to be a food network star"?

:D Oooooo! Top Chef!!!!
One of my favorites!
Stephanie. I really think she's going to win it.
(Also a Project Runway fan and HGTV's Design
Star and a couple other Bravo reality shows -
I blame my daughter - she got me hooked.)

I also hope Stephanie wins! I really relate to her for some reason, and I think there's sort of a push this season to finally crown a woman with Top Chef status. But I would be cool with Richard too.

Hooray for Stephanie!!!
