Bryan Voltaggio teamed up with his brother Michael during “Top Chef” Restaurant Wars, but the pair did more bickering than boosting in the kitchen.

This week, the remaining "Top Chef" chef'testants (they're dropping like flies!) will have to do battle in front of two intimidating personalities: actress Natalie Portman and James Beard Award-winning chef Paul Bartolotta. So, who's scarier to cook for, the attractive ingenue or the master of Italian seafood?

Oddly, this weeks odds are betting on Kevin, who has managed to keep his cool throughout this season, but delivered a poorly cooked lamb last week - a dish designed by Laurine - and was on the losing team. Hot on his heels, according to Wynn Las Vegas Director of Race & Sports Operations Johnny Avello's lines, is Michael Voltaggio, who proved his mettle during Restaurant Wars, assuming team leadership and cranking out not one, but two impressive dishes.

As "Top Chef: Las Vegas" gets down to the final few, tempers are flaring and the competition is reaching a boiling point. Whoever can keep their head and cook up something spectacular in the process will likely take home the title of "Top Chef."
