Top Chef? Apparently Padma Sucks At Her Job

The upcoming season of Top Chef is apparently going to be an all-star season with contestants from the previous seven seasons filming in New York City!

Previous chefs that will be on the show include Spike Mendelsohn, Marcel Vigneron, Richard Blais, Fabio Viviani, Carla Hall, Angelo Sosa, Tiffany Derry, Michael Isabella, Dale Talde, Tiffani Faison, and Stephen Asprinio.

Eater NY was told that “this is a full season and not a one-off special” after earlier reporting on “unsubstantiated rumors” that “they’ve been shooting for the past week or two, [which] would make for a very long episode.

A tipster also told Eater that “Padma is so inept at hosting that she wears an earpiece and the crew is there telling her exactly what to say through it…would explain her weird pauses and lack of seemingly any brains.”

Well, she must not be that shitty if they just won an Emmy Award!
