Top Chef Las Vegas Recap: The Reunion Episode

Picture 1 The reunion show. Unless you are talking Real Housewives these shows are usually boring as hell, but I watch them every time.

Plus this year there was that teaser about Kevin almost quitting in the middle of the season.

As if I wasn't going to watch.

Really, even if it was just to see by little friend Mattin again.

And I have excellent news about Mattin.

HE WORE THE KERCHIEF TO THE REUNION!!!

Picture 8 

It was amazing.

But what of the montages.

There was one about the collective geekiness of Eli and Kevin.

There was one about drinking, where we got to see Mattin puking on a tree.

One where they subtitled Kevin not speaking French during the Robuchon episode.

There was one where everyone talked about how much their own food sucked.

One where the judges talked about how much everything sucked.

One where the judges talked about how great everything was.

There was the one about the Voltagii.

There was one all about Mike Isabella bringing douchey back.

There was one where Robin never ever stops talking.

One where everybody fights with Robin.

And a blooper reel.

*yawn*

Well, except the puking in the tree part. I hadn't seen that before.

I think I have issues.

Hey! Look over there!

Picture 9 

Of course Padma is the hottest pregnant person ever.

I don't look that good NOW and my kids were born five and a half years ago.

There was a weird moment where Mattin asked Padma is she got pregnant during the "Room Service" episode and Padma said that she did eat a lot of huevos that day and people who are gay and whose  names start with the letters A-S-H contingent totally lost their shit.

It was pretty hilarious.

The Voltaggii mother showed up and gave her losing son a Corvette. Also kind of weird.

All in all it was a fairly typical reunion episode.

Wait, did they say "Top Chef QuickFire Wine"?

I just found this graphic on the interweb so I guess that did say that.

Oh, and the Bravo torturers won't even announce the fan favorite (who was clearly Kevin, right?) until Thursday night.

Do I look like a patient person? I think not. For christsakes it is my birthday. Just tell me already!

I think I'm glad I missed it. BOO, Bravo.

Kim

So what was up with Kevin almost leaving? I missed the show I think because both the SYTYCD finale and Mythbusters somehow got promoted over this. DVRs should be able to record three things.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah


@kim He felt terrible after Restaurant Wars and he felt responsible for Laurine leaving.

He was sad.

Darcey

Yet another reason why Kevin is awesome. On another note, this Atlantan has now eaten at Eno (where Eli is the Exec. Chef), and he came out to meet our table at the end of lunch. He was sweet, much more likable than portrayed on TV, and had that a combination of just general excitement to meet fans, and a "aw, shucks" attitude that definitely made him more endearing (but not as much as Kevin).

He also dished that the Mikes (I & V) were much nicer in person than edited - Mike I was just loud and brash, but protective, and Mike V was extremely intense during cooking moments, which is mostly the footage that they used.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah


Yeah, when we went to Zaytinya we didn't talk to Mike I., but we saw him and seemed to be acting charming to the other guests.

Snarky Amber

Happy birthday, dude.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah


Thanks!

Heidi

Thanks so much for all the great recaps this season. I loved them.

We don't get Bravo (but I'm usually able to watch the show online) so I haven't seen the reunion yet. I still want to see it!

Happy Belated Birthday and thanks again!

PS I get a big smile every time you write "Voltagii." :D

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah


Thanks!
