Alright, it's the moment you all have been waiting for (some probably have been waiting for this competition to finally end and go away). But after nearly two weeks of voting, you have picked your favorite chefs and narrowed the playing field from 36 to the two hottest (we're sure some people's mothers would argue with the results).

The Eater Chicago Hottest Chef Competition now enters into the final round, a match up between Graham Elliot exec chef Merlin Verrier and Chris Curren, exec chef of Elate and Blue 13. To make things more interesting, the polls will remain open until 5 p.m. CST on Tuesday. And whoever wins will advance to compete against the winners from each Eater city on Eater National on Wednesday. You ready to rumble? We know we are. Go vote!
