OK, so we're all really stoked about the start of Top Chef, D.C.
tonight. Even Bravo producer and Watch What Happens Live
host Andy Cohen is venturing into fanboy-level excitement, as proven by his repeated tweets
on the subject today. (So cute. Love that guy.)
Glad to have some Dallas representation in Go Fish gal Tiffany Derry
, so I'll be recapping tomorrow...and each Thursday for as long as she's on the show. But for now, how 'bout a pre-premiere list? These are our picks (after the jump) for what we're pretty certain will go down during the the season premiere in the nation's capital:
Gross time mismanagement:
|Season 2 Runner Up Marcel Vigneron mismanaged his time pretty awfully in 2008. |
This is really a guarantee. No one
really knows how quickly 15, 45 or however many minutes passes until the
cameras are rolling and you have to feed Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio,
Gail Simmons and Eric Effing Ripert. The only question is whether the person
who doesn't finish will be sent home for not meeting the task
requirements or if he'll stay because his vision was so much better
than someone else's shitty finished product.
Lots of product placement:
|We get it, it's Glad sponsored. Commercials take care of that.|
Be it GladWare and "the Glad family of
products" (I can hear Padma's voiceover now) as in past seasons, or
GE's Monogram series or even Alexia snacks (which I remember, one
season, being included in a challenge as well as being shoveled into
contestants' mouths during down time in the condo), there will always be
camera shots that are recognized for their attempt to sell sponsors'
products. And said shots will make me desire such products...at which
point I will resent said shots.
