Typically, I don’t have much love for the reunion show. However, last night’s Top Chef DC gathering had a few moments worth celebrating. My favorite happened during the Judges Gone Wild segment in which we were all treated to Tom, Padma and the crew killing time. At judges’ table, Padma asked, “Who do we want to send home?” And then Tom raised his hand looking very sullen and a little hopeful. Awesome.
And I’m super excited about Top Chef All Stars! Hello Fabio, I have missed you! I am eagerly awaiting a new round of quotes. Though he is best known for “This is Top Chef, not Top Scallop,” my favorite (so far) was when Tom dissed his dish and Fabio said something like, “My grandmother, she would be so disappointed in you.”
And regarding Just Desserts … UGH. Gail is nice. There’s just too much emphasis on the personal drama. I feel bad for that Seth guy, really. But he’s annoying and creepy. And how could they send Tim home? He’s like the Nathan Lane character in the Birdcage. So cute and nice. I will probably keep watching, but I will regret it.
