It’s 21:53 in Poppyland and the Top Chef season finale has finally shown up in iTunes after much refreshing of the iTunes page.
Please do not tell me who won Top Chef. I have to wait for the episode to be available via iTunes and those bastards are slow about delivering. siiiiiigh-whine-moan
B just emailed me:
Oh, I was looking around at restaurants, and it appears that our beloved Tom Colicchio has a restaurant here in Dallas. Of course, he probably wouldn’t be there, but man, just to be in that man’s atmosphere would be breathtaking. Sigh…
Oh, mew mew mew… Cannot wait to visit her!!
On Top Chef: Watch What Happens all three seasons of contestants come together to answer fan questions.
A fan calls out Micah for her yearbook pics on the web. She admits she’s American, that she grew up in Massachusetts, that her dad is South African, that she eats Stroganoff and Hungarian Goulash, all with her South African accent. … Fauxmicah.
RW, do you believe me now?
Further “proof” from a sibling over at Amuse Biatch:
Trust me, I grew up in the same house as her, she is my younger sister!
Our father is from Cape Town, South Africa, and we have been there. But we were all born and raised in Massachusetts, but we absolutely don’t have the typical pak the cah accent, but neither our younger brother or me sound like Micah.
All our family and friends have no clue where she invented this from.
[redacted], nee Edelstein
I can’t confirm that person is really her sister, but let’s trust that the person is who she says she is. Anyone else on the planet seems more trustworthy than fauxmicah right now.
In tonight’s Top Chef episode Micah Edelstein says:
“I’m from South Africa. I’ve never eaten fried chicken. It’s just not something that interests me in the slightest. Chicken a la King? I don’t even know what that is… My reaction to American comfort food: Uuuuuuhhh!”
Would you like to say that again, Faux-Micah from Bridgewater, Massachusetts? RW, I was giving her the benefit of the doubt, but now she’s just a LIAR.
*Thank you to Tom Petty for my post title.
I want you to keep producing new episode after new episode of Top Chef so that I am never left without a new one to watch. I offer nothing in return. Thank you.
What you’re thinking right now is precisely what I was thinking when I watched Ilan in the Top Chef 4 Star All Stars Season 1 vs. Season 2 showdown. No word yet if he chipped a tooth.
Thanks to TC:TCWD for capturing the image.
Update: I am posting a clearer photo from TC:TCWD. And I still don’t know if he chipped a tooth, but I think he thinks it was worth it.
The third season of Bravo’s Top Chef is slated to begin on June 13th, this round to be held in Miami, Florida. Chef Tom Colicchio will be returning as head judge, as will host Padma Lakashmi and judge Gail Simmons. The panel will be rounded out with the addition of Ted Allen – of Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy fame.
In case that just isn’t enough culinary madness for you, Bravo will also be broadcasting an “all-star grudge match” between four Season 1 contestants (Harold Dieterle, Stephen Asprinio, Tiffani Faison, and Dave Martin) and four Season 2 contestants (Ilan Hall, Sam Talbot, Elia Aboumrad, and Marcel Vigneron ) to be aired on June 6th, culminating with the teams serving their meals to the new chefs of Season 3.
I hope Tiffani and Ilan
die a horrible death fall off the stage and have to sit out of the competition.
*Sometimes I think I’m being obvious but others don’t catch on, so I’ll deconstruct: chef + bitches = chitches. Chit is also what my grandmother says instead of shit, so that makes it even funnier for me.
