Jeff McInnis is a Floridan chef who is currently the Chef de Cuisine of The DiLido Beach Club. He has cooked at many clubs, restaurants, and cafes. He competed on Top Chef Season 5 and placed seventh at first, but then was invited back later to the finale in New Orleans. He beat Jamie Lauren and Leah Cohen in the quickfire challenge, and was at the top of the elimination challenge, but had to win to continue on. Carla Hall won, so Padma Lakshmi eliminated him even though his dish was greatly appreciated for it's quality from the judges..
