Now that we only have two days left of Round 1 voting we're getting to the middle of the pack and a more even playing field. Today seed 8, George Mendes (planning his restaurant Aldea), goes up against seeds 14-17 Scott Conant, Michael Psilakis, Tom Colicchio, and Marc Murphy. It's a power house group, so choose wisely. And to you eager campaigners, PR kids, and tech savvy fans: please note suspicious voting could end in disqualification. For a look at all 45 contenders, see a gallery here. May the hottest chef win.
