We've entered the Elite Eight. The first round saw the top six seeds advance with the 1 seed Bloomin Onion, 2 seed Skillet Queso, and 6 seed Rangoons all winning by impressive margins. Two upsets did occur with the 10 seed potato skins taking down the 7 seed Spinach Artichoke Dip from Applebees and the 9 seed Appetizer Sampler from Friendlys beating the 8 seed mini corn dogs from Buffalo Wild Wings.

We have some good matchups in the Elite Eight. Lets get right into it:

1 Seed Bloomin Onion-Outback v. 9 Seed Appetizer Sampler Friendlys: The Appetizer Sampler had a nice little upset in round 1, but that isn't going to happen here. The Bloomin Onion is an unstoppable force, much like a Kangaroos punch. I mean, yeah the sampler gives you a few good options to eat. That's probably why it pulled off the 1st round upset. Now though, it faces off against a juggernaut. Thats why it goes down.

Projected Winner: Bloomin Onion

2 Seed Skillet Queso-Chilis v. 10 Seed Potato Skins-Fridays: The biggest upset in round 1 was the Potato Skins. I saw it coming, but a lot doubted it. In this second round it could be another upset and continue the Cinderella story. Two matchups back to back against chips and dips. Paul predicted it in our latest episode, and I'm predicting it here that Potato Skins pull off another upset. The skillet queso is delicious, I would choose it every time. I only get one vote though, and I think the world likes potato, bacon, and cheese together way more then a chip and dip.

Projected Winner: Potato skins

3 Seed Calamari-Red Lobster v. 6 Seed Rangoons-PF Changs: This matchup should be interesting. A lot would think the Rangoons should be the 3 seed over Calamari. They'd be wrong. Calamari reigns over the rangoons for the simple purpose of it feels fancier. Rangoons are just eggrolls folded different and with less filling. Calamari makes you feel like you are getting a deal with what you're eating.

Projected winner: Calamari

4 Seed Lasagna Fritta-Olive Garden v. 5 Seed Fried Mac + Cheese-Cheesecake Factory: The battle of the fried cheeses. I'm not gonna lie, the Lasagna Fritta was almost kicked out in Round 1. The Elite Eight will be it's final stop. You just can't beat fried mac and cheese. You just can't. Why try??? It makes no sense. I rest my case.

Projected Winner: Fried Mac + Cheese
