Top Chef 2022: Why did Lilian Douchet leave the competition?

This Wednesday, April 13th, M6 will broadcast the ninth week of the Top Chef Competition. From the first minutes, Stéphane Rotenberg announced the departure of Lilian Douchet. Explanations.

Incredible twist top chef. This Wednesday, April 13th, M6 will broadcast the ninth week of its prestigious culinary competition. A sequence characterized by the great comeback of Adrien Cachot. An emblematic candidate for season 11, the chef is promoted to guest judge. The eight candidates who are still in the running are in fact surprised to discover that he has invented a test in his own image, that is to say atypical (but which will not surprise fans of the show): preparing a dish with offal . But that’s not the only surprise the contestants had. You could write it down the lack of one of your own. Lilian Douchet, who had qualified the previous week, decided to put an end to his adventure, as revealed by Stéphane Rotenberg at the start of the programme. “For this ninth week of competition in Paul Pairet’s purple brigade, Lilian had to withdraw from the competition for personal reasons“, announces the moderator of M6 simply. The main prospect is now declined to elaborate or comment on the reasons for his hasty departure.

Against all odds, Paul Pairet’s team isn’t leaving with one candidate less. Lilian Douchet was”replaced by the last outgoing one as provided in the rules“, he assures. It is therefore Wilfried Romain, who has the possibility of a second chance. A great joy for the young man who was eliminated with a single bite. Last week Hélène Darroze faced a terrible last chance as two of her three chefs faced each other. Worse, they only had one bite to convince their squad leader. After a difficult decision, Hélène Darroze had preferred the realization of Louise to that of Wilfried and consequently eliminated her. Finally – and he was no doubt the first to be surprised – Wilfried hasn’t said his last word yet. The task of Lilian is profitable for him. But will he use them and manage to conquer the Palace of Cooks? Answer during this episode.

Top Chef has already experienced abandonment

This is not the first time top chef experienced such a turn – although the circumstances were very different. A candidate from the third edition – won by Jean Imbert – has chosen itgive up the second episode. This is Mehdi Kebboul, who was waiting for the episode to end before throwing his apron. At that time they were seven Last Chance candidates whose theme was the rabbit. At the end of the cooking lesson given to the contestants, Ghislaine Arabian, Thierry Marx, Christian Constant and Jean-François Piège had decided to eliminate Florent Pietravalle. Nevertheless, they had warned Mehdi Kebboul about the level of his performances. Struck to the core, he then decided to leave the competitionwhich allowed the newly eliminated to repeat the competition.
