    I didn't know about this, thanks! I think the only name I recognize is Susan Feniger. I loved Too Hot Tamales!! I may know some of the others but I will need some more information than just a name.

    If you are a Top Chef junkie, you will recognize some of the chef's as previous guest judges on the show.

    First Quick Fire: ingredients come from a gas station! :EVILLE: Although most of dishes look pretty palatable... okay maybe not the red mac-n-cheese.

    I was disappointed by the premiere, it was a little boring. I hate team challenges! Last season was so good, I hope this one will live up to it.

    I didn't think it was boring but I was disappointed it was a team challenge for the whole event as well. I don't know that I really think that is very fair for all the contestants.

    I missed last night's episode, hopefully it will be up online somewhere. I'm excited to watch Ana Sortun, I live close to her restaurant and had a very memorable meal there!
