Week Three: "Top Chef" Power Rankings

Ah, Melissa ... you dazzled us with your big bangs, deep, gravelly voice and mouth-watering fish tacos. We bet you do a stunning karaoke rendition of "Runnin' With the Devil," as well. Diamond Dave would be proud.

Gangsta Gene ... we've poured some drink in the ground for you, our daikon-loving, fish head servin' fallen homie. You may not have had a look-a-like in our original blog post. But your hard-knock upbringing earned our respect. Mainly though, you just scared us. Like, seriously. We're surprised you didn't gut Stefan like a red snapper.

Nine contestants remain, but more importantly, two front-runners have emerged in Channel Surfing's "Top Chef" Power Rankings. However, it's still early, and let's also not forget that readers ACon and Ms. Quarter each have 5 points a piece.

Make sure to keep pace by offering new rankings in the comments section. Skip a week and you'll be more lost than Spike with a bag of frozen scallops. Newbies are also welcome to join the festivities a week late (you're even with Boyd, after all).

Read the rules here. Overall winner gets Adam Reinhard's best-selling new cookbook, "Do You Like Burritos?"

"Top Chef" airs at 9 p.m. Wednesday on Bravo.

1. Fabio, not that Fabio.
2. Stefan sounds like a name of a guy who poses for romance novel covers
3. Hosea I like the "can you see," very clever Ms. Boyd
4. Leah
5. Ariane
6. Mimbo Jeff, though I hate him and never see "dilido" beach club when they credit him
7. I know a girl named Radhika, but she's way cooler than this Radhika.
8. Jamie
9. Crazy Eyes has to go for the sake of my sanity and health

Jamie doesn't get an explanation because she's forgettable.

PS - I just finished typing that last line when they announced Stefan as the Quickfire winner. You can believe me, you can not believe me, but I had class tonight and so could not send in my rankings until now.
