The chefs have cooked and the judges have spoken. Many culinary hopefuls cooked for our four judges -- Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Ludo Lefebvre, and Marcus Samuelsson -- and each judge now has a team of four in their kitchen.
The judges fought over some contestants, and might have regretting picking some others. But that's all in the past. Now it's up to them to mentor these cooks, home and professional alike, and turn them into culinary masters. See which contestants made the cut and who they'll be representing this season below.
