Top Chef's Favorite Contestants of All Time

Buzz In: Who's Your Favorite Top Chef of All Time?

Bravo's cooking reality show Top Chef has issued the ultimate challenge with its latest season: it's the battle of the best! Top Chef All-Stars premieres tonight with a roster of 18 former cheftestants (see Yum's predictions here), including notable runners up like Richard Blais and Jamie Lauren, plus notorious villains like Marcel Vigneron and Stephen Asprinio.

I've been a longtime Top Chef viewer, so I'm inordinately more excited to see these contestants of seasons past compete again. Stephen and Jamie are two of my favorites, though I wonder who else I would have cast as an all-star if it had been up to me. Who are your all-time favorite Top Chef contestants?

Probably Jaime. I'm happy to see her as part of the All-Stars cast! I also loved Casey, Jen, Fabio, Stephan, Dave (season 1), and Carla. There have been a lot of great contestants!

Hmmm, how to define favorite? Hottest? Or simply most likeable? I loved Stephanie, Bryan Voltaggio, and Jen.
