Alton Brown isn't shy about doling out diabolical sabotages to anyone and everyone who enters the hallowed  Cutthroat Kitchen arena, including grandmas, firefighters, the judges he keeps on hand and the A-list chefs on  Superstar Sabotage. In this brand-new series, 16 all-star professionals, all renowned in their field, agreed to subject themselves to Alton's eviliciousness. While most ultimately fell in their quest for Cutthroat glory, a few shined — one in each of the four preliminary rounds and one of them again in tonight's tournament finale. If you haven't watched the newest episode, read no further, because we're about to break down the ins and outs of the battle and reveal the tournament champion.

Chef Fabio Viviani celebrates after winning Round 3, as seen on Food Network's Cutthroat Kitchen, Season 11.

In true finale fashion, Alton unleashed a heap of evilicious sabotages upon the top-four superstars, and in Justin Warner's case, he felt that storm literally, as he was sentenced to a windy, wet weather (prep) station in Round 1's fish stick test. Though Fabio Viviani managed to remain sabotage-free in that early round, he indeed received his own lot of diabolical challenges as the battle progressed. In Round 2, he and Sherry Yard were clad in monster masks as they prepped at and cooked their ramen over a flaming city, and come Round 3, he was forced to execute his dessert in 10-minute prep shifts. But despite the challenges before him, Fabio ultimately outcooked his Round 3 rival, Chef Richard Blais, and scored the win to conclude the Superstar Sabotage tournament.
