Get ready folks Top Chef is back! Okay, well not really, but filming for season 3 will begin in Miami this month. According to the Miami Herald (whose article is no longer available for free online), 13 of the 15 episodes will be filmed in Miami starting this March. No word yet on where the finale will take place, and no word on who the contestants are either. Although I do know there will be 15 contestants and that auditions were held in Dallas, Las Vegas, Miami, New York and my stomping ground, San Francisco.
When the Top Chef folks were here in San Francisco, we headed down and spoke with a few of the people waiting in line. Did we talk with the next Top Chef? We'll find out as soon as Bravo releases the contestants. I hope we did, but even if we didn't, we sure did talk to a bunch of interesting folks. Check out our interviews and see if you like any of the prospective candidates!
