I don't know any of these people.

Michael Voltaggio should have represented the US.

He's the best Top Chef winner from this country, and realistically, the only deserving one.

Anyone watching on the East Coast?

Does Canada have a contestant?

Is that horrible racist going to pollute this thread like he used to? I figured with an international cast his head would explode.

The only thing I remember about Sarah from her season is that she made pancakes from a boxed mix or some such thing.

Samuel was cute. I'm sure he's not pleased being THE French chef who got eliminated first.

R4: Yes, there's a Canadian contestant. He's rather attractive in an Edwardian lumberjack kinda way (if Edwardian lumberjacks had sleeve tattoos). That said, I don't remember what he prepared, although he may have been glancingly edited for time.

Dawn is not an all star. She seems like a lovely person but she still has time management issues and her dishes are a hit or a big misfire.

Chef Ali is very hot!

Chef Mae is my favorite.

Loved Episode One. Tom is dreamy.

R13, Dawn.

Even though my TC: WAS thread was started before OP's, this one seems to be where people are posting, so I defer to yours, OP!

I, too, really like Mae. Also Gabri.

Also, "Edwardian lumberjack" is the PERFECT descriptor for Dale, R8.

It usually takes a few episodes before I warm up to the chefs but this is a really unique, charismatic bunch and I love them already.

I'm also liking the international feel of this group of chefs

Everything's Better When It Sits on a Ritz! (For once, I didn't mind the blatant product placement.) I was hoping someone would make a Mock Apple Pie amuse-bouche, but, alas.

Next challenge: make a Michelin-star worthy dish using Spam and Velveeta.

R18, I was thinking the same thing! I've never had the Mock Apple Pie and have always wondered what it tastes like. From what I understand, I think it's the spices used in a regular apple pie that are the key.

r18, I was waiting for the mock shrimp cocktail: ritz cracker, a small ring of sliced onion, fill the ring with ketchup. My mother made these all the time for her bridge club. Still give me nightmares.

Dawn. Still a fuck op.

Fuck me, Ali. Put it in me. Now.
