Happy Chinese New Year And It Is The Year of Curtis Stone

Forget that it is the Year of the Rabbit, it is the year of Curtis Stone.

His career in the US is now in the stratosphere. Firstly he was on Oprah when she came out for her visit to Australia.

He is now the new host for Top Chef Masters, which is a popular reality show in the US, and is shown here on Arena TV.

He also has another reality TV show in the US called America’s Next Great Restaurant.

Stone will be seen as a judge alongside US food identities Bobby Flay, Steve Ells and Lorena Garcia on the show.

The four will be investors in three venues that will be launched in the US via the reality TV series. At this stage I am not aware if this will be screened in Australia.

The indepth interview/article in the Herald Sun reveals:

  • The opening of the restaurants cost them over $1 million.
  • He is currently in the Bahamas filming the finale of Top Chef, before filming kicks off for Top Chef Masters; and
  • He also consults for United Airlines and has another recipe book in the pipeline.

And he still finds the time to see his girlfriend Lindsay Price.

His success in the US is well deserved, but I wonder if he will be able to flick his Surfing the Men buddy Ben Donohue a guest spot somewhere, as his career has been noticeably quiet lately.

I hope he doesn’t throw Ben Donohue a line to be on TV, at least. I find the guy completely arrogant. And he spruiks for a frozen food product.
