Recap of Bravo's Top Chef Reunion Special Hosted by Fabio Viviani

Top Chef Reunion Dinner: Did You Watch?

The latest season of Top Chef was put on hold last night and instead of the regularly scheduled programming, Bravo brought us a little special. An all-star dinner hosted by season 5 fan favorite and upcoming reality star, Fabio Viviani. The best and most infamous competitors from the first five seasons of Top Chef gathered in Los Angeles to eat and relive their TC histories. Did you watch? Want to discuss? You know what to do:

.

  1. How fabulous was the intro? So fun to see the chefs now and then!
  2. What with all the spinoffs, I can't help but wonder: Why doesn't Bravo do a Top Chef best of the best? And pit the final three chefs from the first 5 seasons against one another?
  3. Who were you most excited to see? I didn't realize how much I missed Carla!
  4. Has your opinion of any of the chefs changed?
  5. Do you think the conversation was force fed by the producers?
  6. What season did you start watching Top Chef?
  7. What was your favorite line? Mine was when Harold said, "The Top Chef knife block needs to be napalmed, in my opinion."
  8. How cute were Marcel and Ilan when they were grocery shopping?
  9. What did you think of Fabio as the host?
  10. Overall, did you enjoy the special?

1. How fabulous was the intro? So fun to see the chefs now and then! I liked it, but I only started watching at the end of season two and I don't even think I saw the final episode. 2. What with all the spinoffs, I can't help but wonder: Why doesn't Bravo do a Top Chef best of the best? And pit the final three chefs from the first 5 seasons against one another? That would be better than Top Chef Masters. 3. Who were you most excited to see? I didn't realize how much I missed Carla! Stefan!!!!!!! 4. Has your opinion of any of the chefs changed? A bit. 5. Do you think the conversation was force fed by the producers? Hell yeah! 6. What season did you start watching Top Chef? End of Season 2, but I watched every episode from season 3 - now. 7. What was your favorite line? Mine was when Harold said, "The Top Chef knife block needs to be napalmed, in my opinion." I didn't have one. 8. How cute were Marcel and Ilan when they were grocery shopping? I wasn't watching that. I'm just listening for now. 9. What did you think of Fabio as the host? Love him but things are forced. 10. Overall, did you enjoy the special? Yes.

First, yes I watched the first part of it and did not watch the last half, love Carla, love Fabio - so cute. I like the challenges, this mess was weak.

1. Intro was great! Loved seeing the "before" and "after" - Carla looks fab with her hair straightened. 2. I agree that a show with the top three finalists from each season would be fun to watch. 3. I was glad to see Harold, Richard, Carla and Fabio. 4. Hung seemed to have calmed down a touch. Everyone else seemed the same. 5. The show seemed scripted. I found myself not paying full attention because it felt like Fabio was bring up topics that would result in drama. 6. Season one - and still going (although I was going to call it quits after Season four and the dreaded Lisa) 7. When Fabio stopped asking questions of the chefs in the kitchen and told them they could continue "coo-hing" and Stefan teased him about his accent. 8. Marcel is far from cute. . . I can't stand the kid. 9. I heart Fabio. 10. It was ok. I missed seeing Lee Anne, Dave and Stephanie. I would have dumped Tiffany and Lisa.

Oh, forgot to mention, the best part of the reunion show was seeing clips for next week's Top Chef w/Nigella. Love her!

I watched, was hoping for some more drama, but it was pretty blah. I was most excited to see Carla for sure, also Richard! Least excited to see Casey, she annoys me. The conversation was most DEFINITELY fed by the producers, asking each season which was their favorite challenge, prying info out of Marcel about his incidents, etc. Very forced. Not a fan of Fabio as host. Would have preferred Padma or Tom to host & let Fabio participate like everyone else so he'd act more normal. I don't know, I loved Harold on his season, but since then he seems so annoyed to be part of these specials which just rubs me the wrong way. He wasn't looking so great either. I wished Sam were there!

1. Loved the intro, but then it just went downhill from there. 2. I'd be willing to bet your idea is in the works. They should take all five winners and doing a mini Top Chef challenge. Or wait until the end of this season and do restaurant wars. There are so many possibilities that I'm sure Bravo is just waiting to unveil. 3. Carla. I love her so very much. She was so sweet about the Casey thing, too! 4. Nah, still all the same. Marcel is still a d-bag. 5. I couldn't help but think about how scripted it was the entire time. You could tell Fabio had an agenda and specific questions to ask each chef. Who would naturally bring up the almost-hair-shaving incident with Marcel? Sometimes Fabio's questions were so out of the loop and awkward that there's no way he was just starting an innocent conversation. Worst part, for sure. 6. I watched the first season, then stopped until season 4. 7. I LOVED Richard's "too aware" rant where he just went on a tangent of questions. Hilarious! 8. I don't think Marcel can be thought of as cute period. Blah. 9. Lame, actually. Which is sad because I really do like Fabio. 10. lol, no. I thought it was a sad replacement of the TV show I'm addicted to. I was only excited to see Richard and Carla. I really do think Bravo is reaching with these things and they should stick to only Top Chef!
