Top Chef 5.15: The Reunion

One of my favorite episodes of any season of Top Chef is the reunion show. It's refreshing and fun to see the chefs out of the kitchen and away from the competition. I also love the intrusive questions host Andy Cohen inevitably asks. To discuss the get-together and find out who won fan favorite,

.

  1. Were you surprised to find out Stefan voted for himself for fan favorite?
  2. Which contestant looked the most different in street clothes?
  3. Gail said the judges fought over who should be Top Chef. Who supported Stefan and who supported Hosea?
  4. Did you forget about any of the contestants? When they flashed to Gene, I couldn't help but wonder, who is that guy?
  5. Do you want an "I Love Fabio" tee? I do!
  6. How hot was Tom when he described saving Joan Nathan's life?
  7. Would you be embarrassed to watch a recap of your adulterous relationship (like Leah obviously was)?
  8. How entertaining were the stew room clips? My favorite was when Leah and Jamie got wasted!
  9. Which part of the reunion did you most enjoy?
  10. Who was your fan favorite? As much as I love Fabio, I was hoping Carla would win.

1. Were you surprised to find out Stefan voted for himself for fan favorite? Nope. I would have voted for him, too. ♥ 2. Which contestant looked the most different in street clothes? Ariane. She looked weird to me. 3. Gail said the judges fought over who should be Top Chef. Who supported Stefan and who supported Hosea? All three of the original judges supported Hosea while Toby wanted Stefan to win. If you're asking who I supported then I supported Stefan. The judges say that Hosea deserved to win and Stefan is happy about not winning so what can I really do? 4. Did you forget about any of the contestants? When they flashed to Gene, I couldn't help but wonder, who is that guy? I didn't forget anyone. 5. Do you want an "I Love Fabio" tee? I do! You bet!! 6. How hot was Tom when he described saving Joan Nathan's life? He was so cute throughout the whole thing. He is always so hot! I loved it when he told (I think Big Gay Richard - that is his nickname right?) that he wasn't supposed to tell anyone about them dating. lol So adorable! 7. Would you be embarrassed to watch a recap of your adulterous relationship (like Leah obviously was)? Um, that would never happen to me. I'm not a cheater and I doubt that if I ever did cheat it would be somewhere that it could be filmed. Leah is just stupid. 8. How entertaining were the stew room clips? My favorite was when Leah and Jamie got wasted! I loved the bed and when they were doing the leg thing. That was awesome! 9. Which part of the reunion did you most enjoy? How about what part didn't I enjoy the most? It was all great!!! 10. Who was your fan favorite? As much as I love Fabio, I was hoping Carla would win. I thought Carla had a huge chance of winning, but I'm glad Fabio won. I thought he might get it.

[Were you surprised to find out Stefan voted for himself for fan favorite?] Weeeeeell... there were a LOT of outraged people after the finale!

[Who was your fan favorite? As much as I love Fabio, I was hoping Carla would win.] Oh, Fabio. Definitely. He was so entertaining!

Were you surprised to find out Stefan voted for himself for fan favorite? No, but I like Stefan and think it's hilarious that he did Do you want an "I Love Fabio" tee? I do! No, but I desperately want a "Cougar in the Kitchen" tee. Even though I'm only 26. I'll earn it! How hot was Tom when he described saving Joan Nathan's life? I love that story. Tom's the type of guy you can depend on. You want him on your side. He's a good protector. Would you be embarrassed to watch a recap of your adulterous relationship (like Leah obviously was)? She deserved that and worse. I can't abide betrayers! How entertaining were the stew room clips? My favorite was when Leah and Jamie got wasted! Yeah, that was hilarious! I also loved the Fabio/Stefan clips and the "birthday curse" clips. Which part of the reunion did you most enjoy? The funny clips. Seeing everyone be friendly together (no judges or competition here!) Fabio winning fan fave. :0) Who was your fan favorite? As much as I love Fabio, I was hoping Carla would win. F-A-B-I-O! I love charmers.

Fabio is just utterly charming. He and Stefan were hilarious. The Hosea/Leah stuff made me so uncomfortable, but not as uncomfortable as when they asked about Hosea's dad's health. Odd setting for that I thought. On a less serious note, the scenes of Jamie and Leah getting wasted were hilarious. I am surprised that doesn't happen more. I totally forgot Jill existed.

1. not at all - he's got a great sense of himself. 2. oh i don't know - it's def hard for me sometimes to see people out of the environment that i'm used to 3. i think that it's all for show. they knew who they liked from the get go...honestly. 4. i actually remembered gene, surprisingly. i typically do forget the first 1 or 2 to get kicked off. 5. lol...i can't do that to my other celeb manjoyment. 6. :) you gotta love that 7. um yes! it's possible that you just forget that cameras are on when you're doing things, and whoops! 8. we've seen similar scenes like that a lot. it's really amusing, and it gives you a better sense of how long deliberation takes 9. i just like seeing everyone again. 10. through the whole season, fabio was my fav - only about 1/2 way through did carla really win my heart.

1. Were you surprised to find out Stefan voted for himself for fan favorite? Ha! No, not surprised one bit. 2. Which contestant looked the most different in street clothes? Ariane looked different as in pulled together and very cute. 3. Gail said the judges fought over who should be Top Chef. Who supported Stefan and who supported Hosea? Read Toby's Blog on BravoTV.com, Tom, Gail and Padma fought for Hosea, Tobey fought for Stefan. 4. Did you forget about any of the contestants? When they flashed to Gene, I couldn't help but wonder, who is that guy? Yeah, I had forgotten about quite a few contestants, probably because they were neither memorable or didn't make good food. 5. Do you want an "I Love Fabio" tee? I do! Nah, love him but don't want a tee. 6. How hot was Tom when he described saving Joan Nathan's life? Hot? Uh, no. Sweet, yes. Don't get me wrong I love Tom. 7. Would you be embarrassed to watch a recap of your adulterous relationship (like Leah obviously was)? Ugh, they are both idiots and shoudl be embarrassed. No, I wouldn't mind a recap because I would never do something so moronic! 8. How entertaining were the stew room clips? My favorite was when Leah and Jamie got wasted! Yeah, I loved some of the clips, Jaime and Leah drunk was pretty hilarious... as well as Fabio and Stefan's "love affair". 9. Which part of the reunion did you most enjoy? The clips and seeing the judges be a little more "human". 10. Who was your fan favorite? As much as I love Fabio, I was hoping Carla would win. I was hoping for Carla but assumed it would be Fabio.

1. I'm hardly surprised. 2. Not the most different because of the clothes, but it was not a good decision by Richard to shave down to a goatee. I miss the full beard. 3. We already know from the blogs that Toby supported Stefan. My guess is that he was the only one. 4. Awww... I liked Eugene! I wish I hadn't seen Danny again though. Ariane lost her hobo-killer hairstyle and just went back to being crazy NJ girl. 5. Not enough to spend actual money. 6. I wonder if he was instructed specially not to say her name. That felt weird to me. 7. I wouldn't know. I've never been in one. 8. High-LARIOUS. While my favorite was definitely the two getting blitzed, I was amazed at the ingenuity shown by the contestants as they made a freaking bed out of the Glad Ziplock Bags. Perhaps blatant abuse of product by the contestants will convince companies not to sponsor challenges so vigorously. 9. I always love making fun of the quick exits, and I was psyched they asked Lauren and Pat about it. 10. I was hoping Fabio would win. Carla really just gets to me. Some extra thoughts: I asked this on a separate board and got very few responses, but maybe YumSugar's readers are more savvy. Does anyone think that Gail looks pregnant? Last week she was overflowing her neckline and this week she was wearing what looked like a baggy trash bag. Hmmm...
