Back to the beach! Given how Nina Agdal seems right at home in the surf, as evidenced by the cover of this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover, it only makes sense that the 21-year-old would be asked to shoot her second spot for Carl's Jr. and Hardee's somewhere tropical. In the commercial, we see the gorgeous gal walking seductively toward the camera before biting down on a Charbroiled Atlantic Cod Fish Sandwich, all while giving us a come-hither stare. Of course, Agdal isn't the first beautiful babe to help make products for Carl's Jr. even more delicious. She's part of a long list that includes Kate Upton, Padma Lakshmi, Kim Kardashian, Katherine Webb and Jenny »

To kick off the finale, Padma Lakshmi brought in previously eliminated contestants to act as helpers. As winner of last week’s challenge, Nick got to choose his team first, selecting Jason, Louis and Brian. Nina chose Shirley, Stephanie and Travis – her top three regardless of Nick’s “advantage.”
Each chef is tasked with preparing a four-course meal for an entire restaurant. During prep, Tom visited the kitchens and gave the chefs some last minute critique. He played mind games with Nick first, clearly disapproving of Jason as his first pick helper, before moving onto Nina where he questioned her dessert choice.
Nina planed her four courses as Island with an Italian twist, serving a first course of tuna tartare with tomato water and jalapeno. Tom loved it, »
The final two chefs left standing were Nicholas Elmi, the 32-year-old from Philadelphia, and Nina Compton, the 34-year-old from Miami. All season long, they were fairly evenly matched, with both of them winning three challenges, though Nicholas was in the bottom five times to Nina's two.
In his post-win interview, Elmi says, "This is a pretty great feeling right now. I don't even know what to say. Winning means a lot for my family, it's life-changing."
Nina says that she's proud to be a role model, »
