What do you get when you cross a program of the highest calibre of food preparation with one of the most physically stunning women in the world. Top Chef, of course, baby. But also, Top Chef Masters. From TVGuide:
"If Hosea's Top Chef victory last month left a bad taste in your mouth, news of the premiere of Top Chef Masters this summer may get you salivating again.
"The spin-off series — in which 24 world-renowned chefs (including Wylie Dufresne, Rick Bayless and Hubert Keller) face off for charities of their choosing — premieres Wednesday, June 10 at 10 pm/ET on Bravo.
"Celebrity guest stars and judges will include Neil Patrick Harris, Zooey Deschanel, Flipping Out's Jeff Lewis (yay, synergy!), all the past Top Chef winners at once, and — brace yourselves Lost-ies — Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof. Former model and food journalist Kelly Choi will play Summer Padma, and manning the judges' table will be New York Magazine's legendary critic Gael Greene, Saveur magazine's James Oseland, and Simon Cowell clone British journalist and broadcaster Jay Rayner."
NYC TV tapped seriously beautiful Kelly Choi, whose flirty interviews have been a private distraction for many red-blooded male New Yorkers, to host.
