Tomorrow is a big day for the country, and I think we all know how we will be spending our evening tomorrow night. That’s right…getting ready for the season premiere of Top Chef Seattle coming up this Wednesday.
Though it doesn’t provide enough information to start lining up your Fantasy Top Chef draft picks, Bravo has posted a sneak preview of the first 10 minutes of the upcoming season premiere online.
The sneak preview teaches us two very important things about the new season. First, there are at least two instances of ironic old-timey mustaches, and second, like last season, we will begin things with a crew of chefs who haven’t quite made it to the big show yet. The 3-part preview focuses on two teams of could-be cheftestants, each going through a trial-run on one of the judges’ restaurants. Tom Colicchio and Emeril run the chefs through a similar regiment of tests that they give any chef hoping to join their kitchen, and only those that are up to snuff will make it. That means that of the groups of 5-6, all could make it, or none could.
