Here we go.
The new season of Top Chef kicked off last night with a cook-off between top contestants from the first two go-rounds. Predictably, the chefs from the first installment won, and their successors acted like children.
And in the endless torrent of promotion for this third season, Bravo focused on the Machiavellian stuff and not the food. The swearing, the name-calling, the drunken faceoffs and braggadocio and backstabbing and flirting.
I’m sure Bravo has focus-grouped this to death, but there are some folks who actually tune in to see what gets cooked. Watching professionals re-enact middle school drama wore out quickly last season.
