I don't think it mattered how many they started with asking as some chefs were eliminated. They could always throw in a double elimination challenge if there's too many in the beginning.

I don't know, but I wish it would come back.



I'm with you guys on thinking that Life After Top Chef would feature more than just those 4 chefs. The Pelligrino woman . . . she seems so frazzled, not sure how far she'll make it. And I really wish she'd pin back her hair/bangs -- I just kept thinking of her hair falling in the food.


Between her bangs and others who sweat over the food.......

Looking forward to the new seaon. I thought the omelets all looked pretty uninteresting. I'm also surprised the Wolfgang fell for the old "pile stuff on top so it looks prettier" trick.

We are Top Chef fans. Would love to see them do New England some day.

I ate at Fabio's restaurant about 4 years ago, right after his original season was finished. My company rented half of his banquet room (where he does his cooking classes on the life after top chef show) for our holiday party and we had about 30 people dining and drinking. I was put off for three reasons: 1) the food wasn't that good and I'm not really a food snob. 2) I have a lactose intolerance and part of our prix fixe menu included mashed potatoes. I asked to sub roasted potatoes or anything that didn't have dairy and they said no. 3) Fabio was there and smoozing with every table in there except our's. Now I don't know if someone from our company pissed him off, but he did not come over to say hello to our table but spent time greeting every single other table in that restaurant.

So, not as judges but actual contestants? Hmmmm . . .

True and no telling how it was edited. Those challenges could have been on different days and after Tom picked "x" number, then that left "x" for the next chef/judge, etc.

No doubt, the sweating was pretty disgusting.

I was out of town last week and missed the first show. I'm off to find it on demand! I'm excited - I love Top Chef!

I loved Padma's ruffled collar dress during the quickfire.


Quite a few characters on the show this time around.

The one dark haired woman who won't SHUT UP, I want to slap. I can't imagine working next to her all day.

I can't believe the Japanese woman who said she thinks so much she can't focus! For a chef that would be lethal. How the heck would she be able to do orders of dishes as they came in?

I can't believe Stefan is back.

And that Mr. Arrogant Stefan almost went home first! Oh I wish he had - I liked the guy (I am HORRIBLE with remembering names) who did go home.

Yeah, I'm already dying to slap that stupid yackity yackity YACKity woman!

Ugh...I can't stand they brought back past contestants but I liked how they were on the bottom. And I think they should keep their "we played this game already and know how it works advise to themselves". First, they already lost this game. Second, why do they want to separate themselves from people they will likely have to work with on teams? Third, if they try to assume take on this "follow me" role, they make themselves a bigger target when facing the judges.


Carla is going to be a problem. That's a fight waiting to happen. I wanted to yell SHUTUP at the TV.

I can't believe the chefs were not more mad about the returning chefs. I would have been swearing up a storm at the camera. It feels like a cheap and offensive stunt. What, were those three too busy to participate in the All Star season?

If one of those three wins, I declare the entire season invalid. (Like anyone cares what I say, haha!)

I just watched the first episode today over lunch (I'd recorded it). I can say I'm in! I reserved judgement until I watched the first episode though-originally I thought I'd be watching "Life after Top Chef", but once I watched the first episode, I cancelled all the others.
