After cooking an overly seasoned bento box "last supper" for Masaharu Morimoto, Antonia Lofaso had to endure one final Top Chef: All-Stars twist before learning her fate: cook a "one last bite" to earn a place in the finale. Unfortunately, the Season 4 alum's flavorful grouper fell to Mike's surf-and-turf with beef tenderloin and lobster tail. "[The judges] were really torn," Antonia tells TVGuide.com. "Mike and I knew it could be either one of us. We both knew we had flaws and there were some excellent points in both our dishes. Sometimes you have a feeling hanging in your stomach of [getting eliminated], but I didn't feel that here." See what else the Los Angeles-based chef has to say about the challenges, what went wrong with her hamachi and why she's OK losing to Mike.
