Next Iron Chef: Crenn out, making gender disparity worse as 1 woman 5 men left

Recap: Our favorite Chef Dominique Crenn was eliminated last night in the tamarind challenge, after being in the bottom two for the past several weeks. That leaves Chef Amanda Freitag as the only woman chef remaining. 5 men remain! The gender disparity gets worse! In 4 weeks, 2 of the 3 women have been eliminated on the Next Iron Chef. And, as you may know, Cat Cora is the only female Iron Chef (with 4 males).

Our new favorite is Chef Amanda Freitag. She will be the Next Iron Chef. We hope.
