In Kenny Rogers’ classic song “The Gambler,” the title character tells his train-mate, “Son, I’ve made a life out of readin’ people’s face/And knowin’ what their cards were by the way they held their eyes.” But that skill goes way past the poker table.

Wynn Las Vegas Director of Race & Sports Operations Johnny Avello is pretty good at reading people, too, and he’s had his eyes on the faces of Top Chef: Las Vegas’ 12 remaining chef’testants. Catch a glimpse into his crystal ball with these lines for the upcoming episode of the culinary competition:
