Short Order Chef pushing Captain Insane-O.

Due to lack of participants, Short Order Chef was already in the TV rounds, where it eventually faced Captain Insane-O. In the match, Short Order Chef was caught on the killsaws and landed on top of Captain Insane-O. After that, both robots would either avoid each other or start pushing each other. The time ran out soon after and Short Order Chef won on a close 23-22 judge's decision. This win put Short Order Chef to the round of 32, where it faced T-Minus.

T-Minus flips Short Order Chef onto its back.

In the match, both robots went straight at each other, but hesitate to come too close to one another. Short Order Chef tried to turn to go at T-Minus' side, but it wasn't fast enough to do that effectively. T-Minus tried to get under Short Order Chef's low body, but almost stopped over Short Order Chef's flipping arm. T-Minus escaped before it could be flipped. T-Minus got under the hinged skirt, but when the arm went up, it didn't catch anything but the skirt. T-Minus went onto its back while Short Order Chef stayed on the ground. T-Minus launched itself into the air and landed on Short Order Chef. T-Minus tried to flip Short Order Chef again, but got underneath the skirt again and flipped itself. After T-Minus self-righted itself, T-Minus got underneath Short Order Chef and finally flipped it onto it's back. Short Order Chef couldn't self-right and was being counted out. T-Minus won by KO and Short Order Chef was eliminated from the tournament again.

As of 2015, it is unknown if Short Order Chef participated the middleweight consolation rumble during Season 4.0.
