Top Chef Masters: Love It or Hate It?

On Thursday, Bravo announced a second season of Top Chef Masters. When I heard the news, I had mixed feelings. While I'm a huge fan of Top Chef, the first season of Masters seemed to drag on. Kelly Choi was annoying and the critics lackluster. Although the participating chefs have not been announced, I'm not sure I want to watch. How about you? Am I the only one who is starting to tire of the Top Chef brand?

lol. what is it about these lovely hostesses that i find annoying too? i really quite put my finger on it. top chef masters wasn't as exciting as top chef, but it was enjoyable for the most part. maybe i'll just stick with iron chef and top chef.

I agree that Kelly Choi was extremely annoying to watch; I really enjoyed seeing master chefs compete against each other.

I enjoy learning about the chef's background and I always learn some new foods or kitchen tips. I love it and will watch.

I just don't want another season. top chef masters to me felt like finding the top of the top. i think it kind of kills the point if another round happened. and i wasnt annoyed by kelly choi but she wasnt the best foodie critic.

I hated Kelly Choi, well, maybe not hate, but I didn't like her. I liked the points system, it seemed fair and transparent. I missed Tom, but I love Gael. What I liked best was the lack of drama (I'm starting to hat the Volt Bros. this year because they are so passive aggressive and arrogant. Eli and Mike I. need to leave my TV and never return), rather, I liked seeing chefs at the top of their game, who make amazing food and help each other out, while respecting the fact it's a competition.

I didn't think Kelly was annoying. Sure, her knowledge about cooking/food is limited, but then again, she didn't pretend like she knew. She was a lot more charismatic and articulate than Padma for sure.
