"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)

  2. I'm not familiar with her. So you're saying nyctv's loss is our loss too? Bleh. I wonder if it's possible for her to be any worse than Katie Joel.

  4. I don’t know this blog writer but dude, Jake, you are right on target. Couldn’t agree with you more about the choice of Kelly choi. I went to Columbia with her. Choi PINED after JOSH KELLY now at espn. He dumped her for a gorgeous blonde, and Choi screamed at Elliott in the Columbia hallways. choi was a laughing stock at school and she then got hired for ONE month at NEWS 12 BRONX by Camilo Pombo. I saw Choi’s air checks then ( about 6 years ago) Man she Sucked! Choi is NO sincere soul. She is not 32 as wikipedia states and she slummed around NYC writing freelance after news 12 trying to make it some how before she begged Arick Wierson at NYC TV for a shot. PEOPLE at NYC TV (not management) do not think highly of CHOI. CHOI goes to these RED CARPET EVENTS in evening gowns TRYING BEGGING CRYING, “LOOK AT ME PLEASE I AM KELLY CHOI.” She has no purpose at these events and paparazzi friends of mine remark they take her pix because she just bares leg at the male photogs. How many wanna bet CHOI will crash and burn or just end up marrying a rich old geezer like JULIE CHEN OR WENDI DENG. Pathetic.

  5. ive been watching the show and kelly choi is not half bad. i preferred her on "Secrets of NY" - the PBS show that has her darting around in a black coat and stilettos - but she does hold her own on Bravo.

  6. just the look of her makes my stomach churn, she's fake, lacks grace when speaking and I thought she had all of this tv experience. i used to watch w. Katie Lee Joel and Padma. I can't watch when Kelly is on. I switch the channel. I'm sorry it's not appetizing. She looks like she should be walking 42nd street in her patent leather boots than gracing a classy show
