The Best of Top Chef

No contestant was eliminated on this week's episode of Top Chef, so I didn't get to interview the losing chef. Thus, I've decided it's a great time to take a look back at what happened on the show this year.

2008 was an exciting time for the reality competition: viewers got to indulge in two exciting seasons in two important cities — Chicago and New York.

We witnessed the crowning of the first female chef and watched what happened when Europeans were thrown into the mix. Here, I've rounded up my favorite moments from season four and the first half of season five.

Did I forget something? What were your favorite Top Chef moments?

I'm really enjoying Fabio this season. His quips and quotes are hilarious, but somehow he always comes off endearing. "This is Top Chef, not Top Scallops" It’s not how many dragons you kill; it’s who takes home the princess—and I go for princess" "...the best cheese, five years aged" And so many others!

well - here's the kicker - aren't 2 chefs going home next week? that's the one thing that makes sense i guess. what i've learned is that if you know how many episodes are left, and how many chefs are there and how many are going to the finale - you can usually figure out if someone goes home or not :) well not that it was a good thing - but remember the shaving the head scene? that was kind of crazy when all that went down. that was by far one of those scenes that you'll NEVER forget
