"Top Chef Masters" Baits Big Names
This is why Bravo is the baddest in the land when it comes to reality fare. On June 10th "Top Chef Masters" premieres at 10pm. This time around all the chefs are already top. Basically, it's "Iron Chef" Bravofied complete with celebrity judges like that blindingly blue-eyed ingenue Zooey Deschanel and Neil Patrick Harris. Are these two not the Bravoest celebrity judges ever assembled?
They've lakshmied Padma as the host of this one, though she will make an appearance along with Tom and Gail. The new girl they've got hosting is another leggy skinny bitch. Her name is Kelly Choi and she's described as a food journalist. Apparently she's too busy writing about food to eat any of it.
So how do you feel about Bravo borrowing from Food Network? I've decided it's okay since "Iron Chef" is an import anyway and I totally spotted Arian from the last season of "Top Chef" working as a sous chef on "Iron Chef" in one episode. When it comes to the celebrities, Doogie and Bright Eyes are neat and all but the famous judge I'll be anticipating most of all? Jeff Lewis from "Flipping Out"! I wonder if they'll let him bring Zoila? Now I'm just being greedy. (Hat tip, LA Times Showtracker)
