Half Way Across the World

Intense Atmosphere

And then there were four.

Tonight's episode of Top Chef: D.C. (or is it Top Chef: Singapore now?) takes the culinary showdown to a foreign land — because what's more patriotic for the season taking place in our nation's capital than to have the finale in Southeast Asia?

In the preview videos below, we get some insight into Singapore's street cuisine by Chef Cito. I've never heard of him, but apparently he's some expert on Singaporean cuisine. He gives the chefs a tour of a huge market with numerous street food stalls, giving them insight into the fusion of flavors and cultures that is found in the food there. Hmm...I feeling they'd better be taking mental notes for an upcoming challenge.

And I'm right! For the Elimination, the chefs must work as a team and prepare a Singaporean inspired feast for eighty guests at a dinner party hosted by Food & Wine's Dana Cowin. The heat is on (in more ways than one).

Who will be booted tonight and which three talented lucky contestants will make it to round two of the finale? If I even had a clue, I'd be placing bets right now — this competition could still go any way at this point.

Check out the preview videos below.
