New Season of Top Chef!
We're only 5 episodes in but already I have my favorites and decidedly un-favorites. And my prediction for the winner: Kenny.
He can cook his ass off, that's for sure. He knows what he's doing in the kitchen, he's got crazy skills, AND he's personable, mature, a natural leader, and a good manager.
And if he won, he'd be the first person of color to win Top Chef. That would be huge! I would love to see that happen already. And it's about time, frankly.
I think Angelo is his main competition (these two chefs clearly think so, too, what with their constant trying to out-maneuver one another), and happily for me (because it makes for funner watching), Angelo is my #1 Un-Favorite. Ugh. He is gross. And not just because of the weird, awkward way he keeps coming onto Tamesha. Plus homeboy needs to bring his ego down several notches; he's just not all that.
Also, will we see our first Top Chef hook-up with Tiffany and Ed? I love it.
What are your predictions? How are you liking this season?
