Well, yeah, but if he will not win, who will win? When the main character doesn't win, is when things get interesting. XD
That's what I said before about to depend of the situation. However, to increase his position in Tootsuki's hierarchy he will need to face this kind of judges very often, in huge events (like Autumn Election) or important Shokugekis. That is the problem.
Well, I don't know how he will evolve from now on, maybe he will specialize in something wide, like his father's specialization. "Strange dishes" can be anything.
