Top Chef All-Stars

I love Top Chef. I got hooked during season one. I had just returned from Korea and Europe and was living with my mom, pondering my next move. Drama, intrigue -- and food! There was a great line that can't be repeated here. (Dave said it to Tiffani. Look it up!)
And in Season 2, there was Marcel. Head-shaving, cheating and someone kicked off!
Tonight at 10 on Bravo, season one all-stars take on season-two's best. I work until 10, so I might miss some of it!
Do you watch Top Chef? Whom do you love/hate?
Season 3 starts June 13.

Thanks for the reminder. We love watching Top Chef. I'm glad they switched hosts to Padma on season 2.

What about Hell's Kitchen? That started this week too. Another summer of yelling and swearing/bleeping.

I LOVE Top Chef. Harold and Stephen from season one are my favorites along with Sam from Season two. I just finished watching tonight's 4Star All Star Battle? I knew going in which team would win.... Did you catch it?

Oh, I know. I like Padma better than Katie Lee Joel, too. Her only claim to fame (aside from being a Miami grad) is marrying a rock star twice her age. Wow. She also has some food experience, but on TV she came off as one-dimensional and amateur.

I've only seen "Hell's Kitchen" once. I don't care much for Gordon Ramsay.
Oh, Sam on Top Chef 2 was so cute! But Marcel was by far the most entertaining.

It sounds like Hung, Marcel's friend, on season three will be the new "Marcel."

BTW - Loved Marcel's blatant use of foam last night.

Oh, the foam! I didn't get home until almost 11. I'll try to catch a rerun!

i don't have cable (which this sounds like it is on), but i have seen the above mentioned Hell's Kitchen, and really can't watch it. i found it very... loud and angry, and unneccessarily brutal. during the episode i saw, the man roaming around and spewing never actually gave signs that he knew how to cook, he would just say "you call that a fried egg?? *@&^$*%!!!!" and things like that.

they've started making different parts of Iron Chef on DVD, and as i've missed most of that trend so far, it is exciting to catch up. when i've eaten at the restaurants of some of the competing chefs, i feel very involved, maybe too intensely.
