Top Chef Cooks Again on Bravo


Bravo will bring back Top Chef for a third season, with casting calls starting this month.

The network also announced that its second-season episode Wednesday at 10 p.m. (EST/PST) will feature guest appearances by Ted Allen of its Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and Debi Mazar of HBO’s Entourage.

“The second season of Top Chef has outperformed even our highest expectations both in ratings and the quality of this nonfictional competitive drama," Bravo president Lauren Zalaznick said in a prepared statement. "We look forward to discovering another group of culinary talents with the same passion for food and cooking with commanding personalities that make Top Chef a must-see every Wednesday night.”
