Everyone’s latest cooking competition series obsession is the UK show Five Star Chef, now streaming on Netflix in the United States after premiering across the pond in June on Channel 4. Five Star Chef entered Netflix’s Top 10 chart within just a few days of its debut.

It won’t be easy to make it through the gauntlet of challenges to impress the judges, but when the grand prize is the chance to make Palm Courts your own, it’s worth taking the risk.

In the end, only three finalists are left standing! Keep reading to find out who makes it to the end, what they cook for the grand finale, and which chef wins.

Five Star Chef finalists

The final three competitors are plant-based chef Adria Wu, Caribbean cuisine aficionado Dom Taylor, and Jordan Brady, the master of three-flavor concepts.

Each chef has their strengths, but they also have their problem areas. Dom struggles to be a strong and decisive team leader, while Adria often goes over her time and needs better time management skills. Jordan has excellent concepts but sometimes lacks attention to detail, and his food isn’t always consistent.
