Full List of Top Chef Masters 2 participants and some judges

Some repeat chefs which is kind of lame, but I love some of the judges, especially Matt Groening and the cast of Modern Family.

  1. In terms of the judges, they're doing just fine (with regards to non-chefs or self-proclaimed foodies). The Simpsons is possibly the greatest sitcom of all time, and Modern Family is absolutely brilliant.

    1. Thanks for posting this! I really enjoyed TCM the first go round so I am looking forward to season 2. I love Modern Family, so that should be a fun episode. I think TC in general does a good job of balancing celebrity judges with people who really know food. So far they haven't gone too far for my liking with the celebrity angle. If they do I would probably start tuning out.

      1. Is there any news if TCM first year will be available on DVD?

        1. I loved Season 1 and am really looking forward to seeing Ludo get his butt kicked again!

          1. No Hubert Keller!? Thanks for the post, and for giving me something to anticipate/obsess over

              they wouldn't bring back the champ as a contestant...though it would be great to see him as a judge.

              i'm surprised they've got 6 chefs from last season competing again - that strikes me as a lot. if only they could have found a new host...

                  Yeah! Boston representation. Ana and Jody are both wonderful wonderful chefs.

                      duh. i meant finalist, not champ! thanks for the correction :)

                          well, yes and no. Keller is amazing and inspiring, but i'm always happy to see the the underdog win...and i have immense respect for Bayless as a chef and a person. but if we were to get Freudian about it, i guess there must have been a reason for my slip ;)
