It's going to be so good!
Oh man, I love all-star seasons. Considering the talent level (not to mention the egos) on these contestants, I am going to bet that this will be one of the more fierce and dramatic Top Chefs... Go Richard! Or Tiffany! Or Tiffany! Or Casey! Or Dale! Anyone but Stephen!
I love these shows. The other shows of this theme can't compare.
I am pumped about the cast of this show! I loved just about every one of these contestants--they were all entertaining. One problem though, it will be hard to see any of them go, like Fabio, Richard, Angelo, Carla, etc. I would root for them all!
