Currently the fifth season of Top Chef is filming in New York City. Although the competing chefs are still unknown, details of the upcoming season are being released.
Last week Tom Colicchio went on the Today Show with three dishes created by 13 of the current contestants. The female hosts of the show tasted the dishes (Kathie Lee spit one out she hated it so much!) and chose one as their favorite. The winner will present the dish on the Today Show when the TC episode airs in December.
In other TC news, rumor has it that the Foo Fighters will appear in an episode of the competition. While I'm looking forward to another season of TC, I can't help but wonder if the mania surrounding the filming (complete with images of the contestants moving into their house) will spoil the show's excitement. What do you think? Do you like to know about the competition before it airs?
