Get Ready for Another Helping of Top Chef

Yippee! My current fave food show, Top Chef, has just been renewed for a third season. Looks like this season has outperformed last year by a massive 56 percent.

"The second season of 'Top Chef' has outperformed even our highest expectations both in ratings and the quality of this non-fictional competitive drama," said Zalaznick. "We look forward to discovering another group of culinary talents with the same passion for food and cooking with commanding personalities that make 'Top Chef' a must see every Wednesday night."

Also, for those of you that have enjoyed Queer Eye's Ted Allen as guest judge, then you're in for a treat. Rumor has it he's signed on for several guest spots in season three. However, if you can't wait until next season, then be sure to catch tonight's "super-sized" episode (Ted's filling in for Gail again). All I can say is, after several weeks of repeats, tonight's episode better be a good one!

Think you have what it takes to be a Top Chef? They'll be having cook-offs in Dallas, Las Vegas, Miami, New York and San Francisco. Here's more info on auditioning for Top Chef Season 3.

I agree that some of the challenges are very ridiculous but they have to keep the chefs on their toes! I always found it funny that the cooks always were complaining that I only cook "high end" food and they can't cook just regular food. JUST COOK! But I do agree just because they are in the "industry," doesn't mean a thing!

I love the show as well, but Season 2 really sold out. I mean a challenge with TGIF, that ridiculous Bailey's cocktail competition (chefs DON'T need to know how to mix a good drink!), the vending machine competition...I don't know what that was about. Were they trying to appeal to the average American? Not to mention 3/4 of the people on the show were pretty talentless. I know they're all in the industry, but some of the stuff they put out was just embarrassing. I know who the final 4 are supposed to friend is friend's with Elia. (He used to work at Robuchon as well.)
