To build exciting for the June 13 debut of Top Chef Season 3, Bravo TV has the ultimate guilty pleasure planned for fans of the reality cooking show: the Top Chef All Star Showndown. This special airs June 6 and pits some of the most and least popular chefs from both seasons against each other.
Here are the all stars from the first season:
Dave...he's the high stress chef who had a tough time standing the heat in the kitchen. (You might recall that the b word was his favorite.)
Tiffani...the chef that surprised many of us by being the runner-up in season one. (Coome on, she should have finished fourth or fifth.)
Stephan...one of the most annoying characters in all of reality television.
Harold...Season One's Winner and all-around nice guy.
From Season Two, we have:
Ilan...Season Two Champion and lover of Spanish spices.
Sam...my personal favorite and perhaps the best looking of all Top Chef contenders (just MHO).
Elia...who made it to the final four and had some very unique cooking styles
Marcel...season two's runner up and not-so-nice guy.
Bravotv.com has a promo video online. The cooking starts at 10 p.m. This time, teams are playing for $20,000 donated to the charity of their choice.Season Two's team is pretty complete. As for Season One, there's one glaring absence: Lee Ann. Any other thoughts?
