Top Chef?

My wife tells me that a new season of "Top Chef" starts this week. Can anybody confirm ?

Of all the competitive cooking shows, I liked that one the best. And that Padma-(sound of wolf whistle or cat call) if I were 20 years younger......and better looking.......and had all my hair....and teeth.....and lost 20#......and were able to stay awake past 8:30 PM...........she would be under my spell!!

Yeah, season four starts this week. There are a lot more female competitors this year; roughly half of the chefs are women this season. I can't wait to see the guest chef judges from Chi-town that could possibly appear:

Homaru Cantu
Charlie Trotter
Rick Tramonto
Gale Gand
Grant Achatz

I'm going out on a limb and say if we see ONE of these, that will be a lot. More likely:

Jean Joho
Jackie Shen
Arun Sampanthavivat
Rick Bayless
Suzy Crofton
Susan Goss
Michael Kornick
oooh what's the chef's name at Avec and Blackbird? It is right on the tip of my tongue......

I am beyond excited to have the new season kick off! I've even been re-watching the old episodes, and the DVR is ready to go.
Have you guys read all the bios yet? I didn't want to, till I saw each one in person.
As for females, I think there's less than half. I'm just supposing that it never seemed like there were ever that many, since a lot got kicked off early on in the competition.

I still wish I could find season 1's Dave and have him cook for me.

Season 1's Dave? Is'nt he the "I'm not your b*tch, b*tch!" guy?

Yeah, he was one my favorites too.

Of course, I also liked Marcel in season 2-I guess I like to pull for the guy that everyone loves to hate!!

I got a new haircut the other day and the guy put a lot of "product" on it ... then it got rained on. The next morning I woke up and my hair looked exactly like Marcels!!

Season 1's Dave is chef of a restaurant here in New York.... Sola or something like that. Can't remember exactly. I still haven't been to Perilla (that's Harold's place).
