Top Chef – Tom Colluchio Spruiks Diet Coke

Now Top Chef has always had some dubious sponsorship deals with some pre-packaged food companies. But food bloggers are aghast that he is now spruiking diet coke. If you don’t believe me here is the ad.

Last night’s episode of Top Chef New York was as ususal very entertaining. The chefs had to cook for Food & Wine Editor and judge Gail Simmons bridal shower. They were in teams cooking under the themes old, new, borrowed, and blue.

Stefan’s arrogance knows no bounds.  He has a crush on Jamie who said “Doesn’t the word lesbian mean anything to him?”. Well Jamie I doubt it, he probably thinks he can turn you.

The elimination challenge was fun to watch. Carla and Danny teams did some sort of DIY deconstructed sushi, which they forgot to tell the guests how to eat. It was a huge mess and you knew someone from that team was going home.  Danny was the one who had to pack his knives and go.

Exit interview with Danny here..

Ariane won much to Jamie’s disgruntlement for her lamb.

Tom may be spruik’n Diet Coke, but he’s still drinking the full cal stuff. Guess he doesn’t want to lose his ‘hairy bear’ sex-symbol status.
Stefan obviously has weird taste in women as Jamie does not even qualify for lipstick lesbian status. In fact, she wouldn’t look outta place fronting the Newtown chapter of Dykes on Bikes as they rev their way through the Sydney Mardi Gras parade the week after next. Maybe he’s just got a thing for chicks with tatts and genital piercings.
I also thought it unsurprising when Stefan revealed he’d been divorce twice. Gee, I wonder why? I still think he’s an odds-on chance for the top three, as he is clearly a very talented chef. The challenge for him and the Italian chef (forgotten his name) will be the quirkier US-centric challenges….crap like cooking ‘gourmet’ weiners and chilli dogs for a bunch of fat cops from the Bronx.
