Wednesday, August 19, 2009: Top Chef Masters

Wednesday, August 19, 2009: <i>Top Chef Masters</I> This little experiment is over already (it feels like it flew by, but it also feels like we've been through a lot) and we are left with some wonderful chefs (Hubert, Rick), and that other one, Michael. Haha, I kid. I'm from the Napa Valley, so I have an unfair bias against the guy, but why would any sane, grown-up professional act the way he did last week while cameras were pointed at him? It's just very hard to explain! The phenomenon of how progressively comfortable reality show subjects get behaving in unbecoming ways in front of cameras should be studied by scientists.

But back to the business at hand. Rick Bayless has proven to be a brilliantly talented chef and lovely person, but I remain steadfastly in Hubert Keller's corner. I honestly think he's the best chef there, all-around, and he's been the most compelling and likable contestant to watch all season (yes, even more than Art Smith and my second favorite, Mark Peel). Rick is tough competition, though, so really I'll be happy with either of them taking Top Chef Master. If Michael wins, however, you will be hearing from me in the Telefile. Loud and clear.

As an added bonus, Tom and Padma are back to judge, as are all the previous Top Chef winners, which means that culinary piece of adorably dorky sexiness Harold Dieterle will be on your screen, ladies (and certain gentlemen! And excluding certain ladies who do not prefer gentleman, I just realized!).

Sorry.

If cooking shows aren't your thing, or you're boycotting Michael (marry me!), you can find something else to watch tonight in our Week in Preview.
