Top Chef Teases

2008_10_topchefpromo-1.jpgIt simply wouldn't be a new season of Top Chef without some new twists, and we get a taste of one in a lengthy profile on NBC executive Lauren Zalaznick: "Andy Cohen, the head of original programming and development at Bravo, floated a proposal for Top Chef that would involve, early on in the new season, a surprise challenge and the swift elimination of a contestant. Zalaznick and company wouldn't allow me to give away what is known in the genre as "the reveal" — the unexpected dramatic twist — but suffice it to say, the challenge was an otherwise mundane cooking task that, when performed under pressure, would thoroughly unnerve the chefs."
