"Top Chef DC" Preview: Chef Fun Facts!

Top Chef DC  I hope nobody was disappointed that I haven't been recapping "Top Chef Masters" but I have trouble tearing people apart who are already successful and doing all of these challenges for charity. That being said, next week "Top Chef DC" begins and I have zero issues making fun of folks who are on reality tv for profit, and I cannot wait.

Even if Top Chef weren't my favorite non-football show (which it totally is) I would still be excited because this time Top Chef is in my city.


*waves at Tom Colicchio*

I am totally geeked about this season - so much so that I just watched all the previews and each chef's bio reel on the Bravo website. I was going to go through and give you a quick recap of my thoughts on each chef, but since there are 17 of them and I really want to wait until I see them in action next week, I thought instead I would just give you some fun facts I learned about this new batch of chefs while doing research.

I research for you. I don't want to you have to read each individual bio unless you really really want to.

I give. It is what I do.

Oh right. Fun facts:

Fun Fact #1: Arnold used to be a professional figure skater. 

I am about 85% sure this is a photo of him.

Picture 6
 Fun Fact #2: Kevin won Best Meat Presentation at Bocuse d'Or USA.

Picture 7

Heh. I said best meat presentation. I keep picturing a flasher.

Fun Fact #3: Kenny once split his pants open while cooking a 10-course meal.


So there is that.

Fun Fact #4: This dude is a wackadoo.

Picture 8

I hope he doesn't get kicked off too early. He has mad entertainment value.

Fun Fact #5: Stephen has 14 month old twins.

Picture 9

He will be the first guy that ever got more sleep on Top Chef than he was getting at home. I have twins. I know what I am talking about. 

This is all I have for you today, but fear not, these chefs seem both capable of cooking amazing food and liable to go off of the deep end at any second. This season is going to kick ass.

. . . . .

Goon Squad Sarah really, really, really, really, really wants Bravo to call her so she can come down when they are filming an episode. She promises that she will be very, very quiet.

So glad this show is back. For some reason, I just cannot get into Top Chef Masters. That being said, seriously? No Mattin picture?

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

Oh my God! I have accidentally forsaken Mattin.

This should come as no shock to anyone who knows me, but I find Mr.Dreadlocks Wackadoodle SMOKING HOTT. Also, check out the finale of Top Chef Masters. It premiered last night and it was AMAZING. I'm sure Bravo will play it all weekend.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

It is on my DVR. Don't tell me anything!!!

*plugs ears*


Here's an insider's scoop too...Timothy Dean is from Baltimore, and is known to be kind of a shyster. His restaurants have done well over the years, but he is not the greatest businessman in the world.


Arnold! He's a Nashville guy, we eat at his restaurants all the time. One of them is called Suzy Wong's House of Yum, which is pretty much the greatest restaurant name of all time. So excited!


Yippee! I can't wait.


Oh my God, no one killed Kenny, but Kenny totally looks like he might want to kill me.


Also that doesn't look like an award-winning meat presentation to me.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah


Well, don't fuck with Kenny.

Also -  you said meat presentation.



Wackadoo guy looks suspiciously like Carla from a past season. Hmmm...

Suzy Q

What IS that meat presentation thing? It looks sorta delicious...and scary.
