Top Chef Seattle Season 10

Anybody watch episode 1?

I liked the change on the first episode. I am not going to say much so I don't reveal any spoilers.

Hadn't even realized that the new season had started. It'll have to be great for the show to reclaim my interest after last season.

Having watched half of the first episode on a choppy bootleg internet feed, I can say that a) I'll be rooting for Kristen and b) I hate novelty facial hair.

Addendum: those omelettes looked terrible.

They definitely are.

Regardless, Asian chick seems like she can make it far this season.

Brooke is a cutie.

The Canlis restaurant was opened by my uncle and now owned by my cousins.

^ Whoa, that's pretty cool. Do you get to eat there often? Seems to have a pretty serious wine list.

Sadly I have not been there in 20 years. There used to be four Canlis restaurants, Seattle plus Honolulu, SF (Fairmont Hotel), and Portland. I ate at the SF one all the time as a kid but when the Fairmont declined to renew its lease, Uncle Peter closed it and did not reopen it. The Honolulu restaurant lasted into the early 90s at least and I ate there about once a year in the '80s. I never ate at the Portland one.

Seattle is now the only one left.

Are some of these people retreads from prior seasons? I think at least the bald guy and the really tall guy?

Three of them are, the tall one, the bald one, and one of the fat chicks.

Neat.


Anyone have an opinion on the season-over-season trend in general talent level on top chef? Seems like over time it would get stronger, but there have been some sorta rookie looking mistakes this year.

Adds a nice narrative layer to the season (Will the veterans have an advantage? Or are they more likely to collapse under the pressure of being better than the others?). Stefan's return is especially good for the show since he's an entertainingly cocky bastard who lost to a much maligned dumbass at the end of his season.

I've wondered about this. Seems reasonable that the talent pool would take occasional nosedives. The show is in its tenth season, and each season goes through twenty (?) or so contestants. Probably does get difficult at times to find enough chefs right in the sweet spot--talented enough to be genuinely good but undistinguished enough that they'd want to put themselves in this kind of journeyman role. I guess that John Tesar guy is probably an ideal contestant at this point in some ways: someone who should've been accomplished given his skills but fucked it up and is in need of redemption.
