Papa's Next Chefs 2013 was the third Next Chefs tournament held from May 6, 2013 to July 11, 2013 to determine the next chefs for the eighth Gameria, later revealed to be Papa's Cupcakeria. The winners of this tournament were James and Willow.


Hey Everyone! Have you noticed that it has been over 5 months since our last Gameria? What?? Well don't worry, we have the next restaurant all planned out, and let me tell you... it's going to be awesome!

With that being said, we figured it's about time to kick off Papa's Next Chefs 2013!

As some of you may know, the Papa's Next Chef tournament is a yearly challenge where you, the fans, get to choose who will be working at Papa's next restaurant! We will be showcasing 2 battles each week, one for the guy's position and one for the girl's position. The winners for each week move on to the next round and one step closer to Papa's Next Chefs!

We would like to thank our sponsors; Dr. Cherry, Fizzo, Purple Burple, and Hyper Green for representing the four divisions this year. Let's get this party started!


BOLD means the winner of that round.

Ineligible / Characters who Did Not Participate

When Flipline Studios began their search for Papa's Next Chefs in 2012 (for Papa's Hot Doggeria), they decided not to include people that are already servers in their previous games, those who have "roles" within the game (closers - although many wind up in the competition, food critic) and those who wouldn't really fit the clothing (whether they were too short or too big) for the programming. So the following characters are not participating in Papa's Next Chefs 2013, for the "rights" to work at Papa's Cupcakeria.

Note that not all "eligible" characters will wind up in the competition. Also note that just because a character has an established "job" or "workplace" (from their Flipdeck profile) does not mean he or she will not be included in this or future competitions.

Hey Everyone!

Over two months ago, we started Papa’s Next Chefs 2013 to decide who will be working at Papa’s Cupcakeria! During that time, we had a record amount of votes counted. Thanks to everyone for voting, sharing, and spreading the word about Papa’s Next Chefs!

The tournament is over, and YOU have chosen the winners of Papa’s Next Chefs 2013! Let’s have a round of applause for the new chefs, James and Willow!!!!!


  • The divisions in this competition were named after drinks from Papa's Hot Doggeria.
  • This is the second PNC competition where James and Scooter were in the same division.
  • With the victory, James earned more votes than both Tony Solary and Matt Neff, becoming the first character to "beat" both Flipline developers in one tournament.
  • With the victory, Willow became the first character who made her debut in the previous game to win the Next Chef's tournament.
  • This is the first tournament where artwork was produced for the Grand Final.
