If you Google “Top Chef”, the first news link is this.  It seems I agree with the overwhelming majority of viewers that the wrong guy, Hosea, won the season.  Hosea did do the best cooking in the final and so there was nothing unfair in him winning.   The other two contestants had “fatal flaws”.  Stefan is overconfident and Carla is too laid-back.  Hosea is a solid and consistent performer.  As the other contestants gave in to their flaws in the final show, Hosea ran past them onto the winner’s podium.  Good luck to him.

The fault lay in the initial choice of contestants.  Despite this show being in New York, there just wasn’t a great selection of good, young chefs.  It’s the producers who lost.
