Top Chef takes the big apple

Season 5 of Bravo’s award winning reality show Top Chef premiered this week.

Seventeen hopefuls attempt to take Manhattan, home turf for the show’s tough-love judge Tom Colicchio.

The first two contestants to get chopped went to the same culinary school together! Yikes. What does that say!?

If one hour of drama isn’t enough to satisfy your appetite for action, check out Tom Colicchio’s blog for the inside scoop on each episode.

Rumour has it that guest judge regular Ted Allen won’t be appearing this season, taking time instead to focus on season 2 of his show Food Detectives.

Top Chef Season 5 runs on Food Network Canada Wednesday nights, 10 ET.

  1. OMG…did you see the shameless product placement in last night’s episode. It just makes the show feel cheap.

  2. Two of the most colourful characters from last season of Top Chef, Spike (the guy with all the hats) and Andrew (who said “I have a culinary boner” which is now a t-shirt) have a Twitter page where they’re keeping commentary on this season.
