I was worried for Dan in the quickfire, but it's hard to top raw fish.

23 out of 26 has to be some kind of record. Writing was kind of on the wall the whole way through after that though.

Savannah's mood board mirror really got that concept over the line, eh? Worked out well.

Man I'm so bummed at how they filmed the blind taste challenge. I would have sworn that we get more insight into how people actually did instead of the montage then a surprise.

I caught on to the alphabetical order thing pretty quick but I really want to know what they used for the letter X! Also glad to see Manny finally go.

It is the record, according to the maintainer of Top Chef Stats in her appearance on The Dish with Kish. They also made a dish using most of the ingredients that were missed by all or most.

Dan was very, very lucky this week, serving an inedible quickfire dish and a horrible dish in the elimination challenge. That raw fish saved him. But for that, Dan would have gone, for sure, as the judges seemed to agree that Manny's dish wasn't too bad overall.
