Hung, Casey, and Dale cooked their hearts out for the finale.
They received sterling help from Rocco Di Spirito, Michelle Bernstein, and Todd English, not to mention Sara M., Howie, and C.J.
In the end Hung made the least mistakes. Dale came close, but his lobster dish was nearly "inedible" according to Tom, and Casey's best dish was mediocre at best according to Rocco's blog. Casey had built up a huge momentum up to the finale, and this was her event to lose. It was unfortunate that she drew Howie, who apparently added the salmon roe the judges disliked, but Casey's pork bellies (who chooses pork belly for a winning dish?) was overcooked. Her performance underwhelmed the judges, so the third Top Chef crown goes to Hung.
