  1. Predictable, but sad. Liya is pretty much a one-trick pony. Asian food and dumplings, dumplings, dumplings. Grayson showed far more finesse and versatility in every competition. He was often somber, and in the end a lot of it came down to a personality contest because he didn’t kiss but t as much as Liya did. Grayson is by far the better chef.

  2. After getting hooked on this great series, although Liya and Grayson were outstanding ) as were all; I’m with the Second Prize ‘ gets nothing crew, whichever way it went. Grayson as well as being super talented was super poised at the announcement but with all that , he or any second prize winner should have gotten something! Glad I’m not the only one.. who will be hesitant!

  3. It is disappointing that the runner up doesn’t get something. That’s a lot of work, and making it to second runner up to not get any products or money.

    • I totally agree. Kids are the future and those kids that have a love for cooking and can do it with so much enthusiasm and talent should receive something for being runner up. Lyla did Win and congrats to her, but Grayson was who I was hoping to win it. He should of got something for his efforts.

  4. Even in Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune there are consolation prizes. And they sure don’t work as hard as these kids!

    • Totally agree, I think Grayson should have received something he worked very hard and to get nothing was so unfair. Gordon need to change that, these are kids.

  5. I came to this site also looking to see if the runner up received any prizes. Did he? He deserved to win something. There should definitely be a consolation prize of some sort for the runner up!

  6. A good show:series. Why however is it winner take all? The runner up should receive something tangible too. Without runner up, there was no competition to watch.

  7. Great series! LOVE, LOVE the kids, esp Ivy💕.
    My question is, what does Grayson get for second place?
    He surely deserves a big prize as well. Lyla was outstanding👏👏👏👏

    • He gets nothing which is so unfair and I feel Gordon needs to change this because the runner-up worked very hard. And the winner got so much and Grayson got nothing

  8. I’m very disappointed Grayson did not win. His dishes were harder to achieve and looked the best. It’s hard to believe the winner gets so much and 2nd place gets nothing! I doubt I’ll watch next year.
