After teams pulled an all-nighter to make chili on Top Chef, the judges added insult to injury when they made the losing team repurpose their chili mole in a cook-off, ending in Richie Farina's elimination. "It was just another twist that none of us expected," he tells "When they told us, we were like, 'What the f---?!' But I get it. It was a good way to differentiate who would go."

Find out why he was so emotional, how he knew he would get eliminated and more.
