It's a long standing tradition here on TFimB (season 4, season 5, season 6, season 7) to endorse a Top Cheftestant before the show even starts based on facial hair alone! Last year I didn't get to do it because season 8 was all-stars, so I am happy to be back for season 9. If you watched the two pre-episodes (is that what we are calling those?), you know there is one crazy front-runner in the battle of the beards.
Andrew has a pretty standard beard situation, it's a little low on the face though.
Edward is rocking the standard sushi-chef look. Long handlebars with a mini chin thing. He is flirting with goatee though.
Richie knows how to rock some serious handlebars. I was a fan of him in the pre-episodes and I think he is gonna do well.
Tylor knows a thing or two about the ironic moustache. I wonder if he also likes skinny jeans and PBR?
KEITH!!!!! Thank you Keith. You have my vote, now and forever. Also those glasses? Killing it. Do us bearded folk proud!
Have you guys caught the pre-episodes? Who do you like so far?
