SATURDAY 7:10 p.m. - The first round of Top Chef Jeopardy is Slumdog Millionaire’d by a teenage boy named Sam. His parents cry when he’s crowned the ultimate Top Chef fan for his encyclopedic knowledge of the franchise. The ever-stoic Colicchio is also visibly moved.
Yes, all of this. Disastrous finale, not by the outcome but by the ludicrous “live” format. (Spoilers of the winner within.)
Robot Chicken’s “Top Chef: Sweden” brought me to tears.
Watch: First 10 Minutes of ‘Top Chef’ Season 10 Premiere | Bravo
Chris Pratt fans should watch.
Here’s the only new Bravo show I care about:
Life After Top Chef
Produced by Magical Elves with Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz, Casey Criley and Nan Strait serving as Executive Producers.
For the first time cameras are taken outside of the Top Chef kitchen and into the lives of Bravo’s most beloved former cheftestants as they reach milestones in their personal lives and culinary careers. From opening their own restaurants to expanding their growing franchises, viewers will follow Jen Carroll in Philadelphia, Richard Blais in Atlanta, Fabio Viviani in Los Angeles and Spike Mendelsohn in D.C.
But seriously, last night’s Top Chef was so bogus. Next season better knock it off with the shenanigans.
“These are the best pancakes I’ve ever had.” In case you missed it, Pee-wee Herman killed it as guest judge on Top Chef. [bravo]
