'Top Chef' eliminated contestant talks strong audience reaction: 'It's wild, honestly'

'Top Chef' eliminated contestant talks strong audience reaction: 'It's wild, honestly'
Spoiler Alert: Don’t keep reading unless you want to know who was eliminated from Top Chef last night.

That sound you hear isn’t Josh twirling his mustache because he has the fry-est chicken in the land. It’s the sound of Top Chef fans everywhere reacting to the elimination of chef-testant Josie Smith-Malave — some with anger, and some (#teamjosie) with sighs. Last night’s episode saw Chef Josie slip up on the fried chicken challenge, which the judges found too greasy. EW checked in with her about Kristen-gate, audience reaction and what’s next.

Top Chef: Seattle Episode 3 “Tom vs. Emeril: Turkeypocalypse” Preview And Chef Bios

As I’m sure you know, it’s that time again. The time when cheftestants throw their hats in the ring and battle over quickfires, restaurant wars, ridiculous time constraints, and the drama of trying to outdo each other.

Top Chef, the Bravo staple that is committed to driving viewers with DVRs crazy by changing the name of the show every season, is already two episodes deep, and the third is coming your way tonight. As is the case every year, while the chefs are making a mad dash to prove themselves before they get sent home so early that no one will remember them, viewers are racing to figure out who is worth rooting for (because they have a chance of sticking around), and who is the token crazy person the producers are going to make sure stays long enough to boost the drama ratings.

Top Chef Texas Recap: Attack The Block Party

It’s Top Chef Texas episode 12 entitled “Block Party”, and to be perfectly up front, this recap is gonna be all downhill after that opening cat photo, as will the entire rest of my writing career and possibly life. But we’re in this season Together, dammit, so I’ll type some nonsense words about that episode we just saw and you can follow along and keep scrolling back up to that cat pic when you get bored. Deal? Breaking News: Paul has just been named the winner of this Top Chef season via Mercy Rule. Congrats, Paul! Top Chef will be moving on to the next season starting next week. Seems only fair. Wait, actually I’ve been misinformed. What I actually heard was, Ron Paul has been named the winner of this Top Chef season via Mercy Rule. Actually no, this source might be unreliable. I’ve actually

Top Chef Recap: Restaurant Wars And Fish Peace-es

This is a Recap of Top Chef All-Stars (Season 8), Episode 7, entitled “Restaurant Wars: One Night only”, originally airing January 19th, 2011. It contains spoilers about penises, just Fyi. For the Quickfire, we head to Eric Ripert’s Le Bernardin to meet the mythical folk hero Justo Thomas, the fish prepper who butchers “1000 pounds of fish every day” and when he’s out it takes “three trained sous chefs to do his job.” He also pulls crooked roads straight, drinks gasoline and farts Dom, and built the Empire State Building by hand as a life-sized replica of his d*ck. After a bunch of hobos spin yarns about Justo’s superhuman filleting feats, Bourdain declares “I think we know what comes next. That’s right – guest judge Jimmy Breslin will give you a New York street number and you have to cook a dish that represents the essence of that number, because

“Top Chef: Just Desserts” Recap: “Yigit Pura’s Day Off”

We open on Danielle sitting in bed, gazing at her face in a tiny compact mirror with fierce concentration. Let’s just say that if she used an ounce of the same focus and determination in the challenges that she’s using to pop this zit, she’d be a shoo-in to win this thing. Then she proceeds to apply her makeup, using one of those horrifying metal contraptions women like to use to curl their lashes, all in full view of the four other chefs sitting around her.

Why certain people have no qualms about performing personal grooming rituals in public is beyond me; I’m absolutely baffled and disgusted when I see people doing this sort of thing on the subway. And notice I said “people” and not “women” – I live in New York City, and believe me, the men are equal offenders.

Top Chef Season 7 Finale Recap: You Chose Singa-Poorly

This is a Recap of the Top Chef Season 7 Finale (aka Top Chef D.C.), originally airing September 15, 2010. If you read on, I will vomit spoilers all over you like some Informational Angelo. I should’ve known we were in for a rough episode when the Viewing Guide had a typo in it: Part 2 of the Finale picks up right where we left off, and I mean right where we left off, like seconds after Kelly’s elimination — when did this become Breaking Bad? — and Padma calls the chefs back to Judge’s Table for another surprise. Oh man, what’s it gonna be?? Maybe they’re gonna have to cook right here and now, using only their hands and what they’re wearing, and Ed’s gonna be like “I was planning for this so I kept a lobster in my pocket. I hope you die, Angelo. I have a sarcastic sense of humor.

'Top Chef' finale recap: And the winner is...
Well, Top Chef fans, we’ve finally reached the end of another season. I know many of you have bemoaned how much the last 13 weeks dragged on, but on some levels, it flew by for me. Without a deep connection to the cheftestants, and with Tiffany (Aka the only hope for a happy ending) booted just before the finale, I was freed up from the usual anxiety that comes from having a strong rooting interest. Stir in a plethora of unanswered questions (mail-order bride or not?), and I found there was even less reason to emotionally invest.

'Top Chef: DC' Season 7, Episode 12 Recap

'Top Chef: DC' Season 7, Episode 12 Recap
Filed under: Recaps, Summer TV

['Top Chef' -- 'Gastro-Nauts']

Twelve episodes into this seventh season of 'Top Chef' and we're still being treated to little nuggets of info about the remaining cheftestants. Angelo, for instance, got divorced last year and has a son. (An interesting development since, in a recent episode, he talked about wanting to win the prize money so he could bring his fiancée over from Russia.)

And, Kelly, who seems to smoke at every possible opportunity, has never been away from her husband, Rick, for more than a few days. Whatever. There's no time to wallow here, folks: The last two challenges before the finale are upon you. Shake a leg.

'Top Chef' recap: D.C., we have a problem

Congrats to Top Chef for taking home an Emmy last Sunday and upsetting seven-time champ The Amazing Race! But the excitement only reiterated just how friggin’ awesome last season was. Last season’s chefs — the Voltaggio brothers and my girl Jen — seriously out-shine D.C.’s less-stellar cooks.

But I’m not going to get all negative Nancy on you because last night, we finally got — dare I say it—an exciting episode. All five cheftestants—Angelo, Kelly, Tiffany, Ed and Kevin — are pretty much on the same level, and the only thing separating them at this point is motivation,

Kevin Goes Whole Hog for Top Chef Win

Top Chef was all about the pairings on Wednesday's show -– and we're not talking about a partner challenge. This week, the chefs had to match a pinot noir with a pork dish and cook for a large crowd at an event with a tough guest judge to boot. All in all, a pretty satisfying episode packed with plenty of drama outside the kitchen too. Quickfire: That exacting judge was Charlie Palmer who announced this week's Quickfire challenge. Palmer may be recognizable to foodies -- but the restaurant mogul was also very familiar to Bryan and Michael Voltaggio, who have both worked for him before. The other chefs were equally daunted and warned about his demanding palate. As for the challenge, the competitors had to create a dish that would pair perfectly with a snack food. (Think onion rings or chips!) Among the best: Bryan, who made a steak dish
