One participant who definitely left an impact on the trio, as well as the viewers, is none other than Jordan Brady. Despite his tumultuous journey, the culinary expert was one of the finalists in season 1 and has garnered much popularity. Needless to say, people are eager to know more about his current whereabouts, and we are here to explore the same!

Jordan Brady’s Five Star Chef Journey

Jordan certainly had a strong start in the competition, as he was the first one to present a dish to the judges and was immediately selected to be a part of the top 7. On the second day, he did struggle when it came to creating a tasty yet opulent dish, landing him in the elimination challenge. Competing against three other chefs, Jordan had to turn up as much profit as possible and ended up staying in the competition with a gain of £245 (about $320), which was higher than Anne Banfield’s £178 (approximately $233) profit.

Jordan made s strong comeback during the next round when his team, which had him partnered with Adria Wu and Igor Sapega, won the VIP challenge, saving them from elimination. However, the next day certainly did not start well for the culinary expert. When asked to create three dishes for an elevated afternoon tea, both his presentation and flavors disappointed the judges heavily.

To ensure his survival in the competition, Jordan played to his strengths in the next round and presented a Spanish-style whole roasted pig. The flair of his presentation and the taste of his dish certainly won many over, though Michel Roux Jr commented that his carving could have used some more finesse. Jordan’s steady but comforting performance allowed him to move on to the finals, where he had to go head-to-head against Adria and Dominic “Dom” Taylor.

For this round, the participants had to serve as the head chef of Palm Court for a day. While Jordan’s concept of three-flavored dishes remained a seemingly modest idea for the judges, they were highly impressed by his leadership skills and how he managed his kitchen. Even though he did not win the coveted position as the restaurant’s head chef, the culinary star did earn praise from the three judges.
