Though he's still looking to get an upscale spot in wine country off the ground, Douglas Keane has found a good use of his time since the closure of Cyrus: he'll be one of the cheftestapants on season five of Top Chef Masters, competing for a $100,000 donation to his Green Dog Rescue Project charity. Keane is up against some stiff competition, including David Burke, Sue Zemanick, Sang Yoon, and first-ever cheftestapant-turned-master Bryan Voltaggio. This season will also feature a new web series, "Battle of the Sous Chefs," in which sous chefs compete to earn points for their bosses. Drew Glassell, a former Marine who spent five years at Cyrus, will be Keane's partner. The new season premieres July 24th.

David Burke (David Burke Townhouse, NYC)
Douglas Keane (formerly of Cyrus, Healdsburg, CA)
Sue Zemanick (Gautreau's, New Orleans)
