A local restaurant owner walked away with $25,000 after showing off his superpowers in the kitchen.

Darnell Ferguson, who owns Super Chefs on Bardstown Road, was named the winner of the Food Network's Ultimate Thanksgiving Challenge.

Ferguson competed against five other chefs as they were given just three hours to put their own creative spin on the traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

“It's all about who you are and staying true to that. That's my whole thing. I’ve got to stay creative. I’ve got to try to do things every round I've never done before, never heard of before,” Ferguson said. “I always try to push the envelope, and I feel like my creativity is what took me to the finale. Then, I felt like I was finally comfortable for one round and it just so happened to be in the fourth quarter with five seconds left.”
