Tonight’s the big debut! Top Chef in DC starts tonight on Bravo at 9pm, and we’ll be firing up the ol’ live-chat machine at 8:45 to get things rolling. I have to say, of all the reality TV that DC’s suffered through, it’s nice to finally get something that might show us the city in a respectful, non-tabloid way. The show starts at nine tonight and features several cheftestants who will be competing for the Top Chef honor, judged by this grinning man above, as well as the lovely Padma Lakshmi and Gail Simmons.
Of course there are some locals in the mix. Look for:
- Timothy Dean, born in DC and now living in Baltimore, hon, and graduate of Howard.
- Tamesha Warren, who is Sous Chef at The Oval Room.
Set your alarms, we’ll see you back here at 8:45 sharp for some pre-show commentary.
