With the poll updated I still vote to Erina because of the same reasons. Anyone surpassed her yet.
Making a Top 3, I would choose: Erina > Alice > Hayama.
Alice is strong and has many secrets, her way of cook is very uncommon and I think that she will be a great challenge to Yukihira in the future. Hayama is strong as well, and I don't think that he will disappear after the Autumn Election.
For those who voted in the lastest poll, please, vote again.
I wish he would bring back Taku into the plot, he was the best rival.
Though I really cant wait for a rematch between Soma and Kurokiba Ryou as well.
Don't make me laugh, Takumi was the worst, he was just a comic relief, he was far from a rival.
By the way, it is time to update this poll.
