All right, friends: The first round of the second-annual Hottest Chef contest wraps up today, after Gabrielle Quiñónez Denton emerged victorious in yesterday's bout. She'll move onto the semifinals along with previous winners Andrew Garrett, Mika Paredes, Jeff McCarthy, Greg Gourdet, Zoe Hackett, and Amber Wester. The sure-to-be-hot semifinal heats start Monday.
But first, one sexy chef must be added to their ranks. Today's top seed Aaron Barnett (the heavenly chef of St. Jack) takes on sweet thang Kristen Murray (Paley's Place), chef-to-the-extreme Leather Storrs (Noble Rot), adorably dreamy David Anderson (Genoa), and so-hot-his-restaurant-burned-down Jasper Shen (Aviary). Polls close at noon tomorrow (Saturday).
