Jillian Madison 12 comments

And so, without further ado, here are the 6 most memorable moments from the Las Vegas reunion special.... More

Jillian Madison 48 comments

Note: We're always giggling at what Jillian over at Food Network Humor, has to say about Ina, Paula, Rachael, Giada, Guy, and the gang. We asked her to share her predictably hilarious food television commentary for last night's Top Chef finale. Take it away, Jillian! Is it just me, or did this seem like the longest season of Top Chef ever? I feel like I've been watching it since the Clinton administration!

The episode opened with the guys eating breakfast in their hotel room. They all looked terribly bored, so either they... More

[Photographs: bravotv.com] Only four chefs remain in this first half of a two-parter season finale in Napa. For the Quickfire challenge, things get a little wobbly when they have to prepare deliciousness on a moving train. Will somebody lose a thumb? Will they be too distracted by the idyllic vineyards they're zipping by? And as Eater reminds us, Padma is still preggers, which adds to the fun of it all. Who are you rooting for?... More
