New Judge on Top Chef

For season 7 of TC, and just for LindaWhit and ghg.

New judge is Eric Ripert. The announcement is kind of buried in the web site but you can see it on Andy Cohen's Tweet.

      OMG I don't see Toby in the bios for this season. What a fabulous replacement for a nasty judge!

          I think he will be brilliant!

              So glad to see Nashville getting some love...go Arnold!

          2. Well, OK - it looks like my ENTIRE post was removed for reasons I'm probably aware of. Point taken Mods. However, I suspect that there will be additional posts when the show starts where there might be ongoing issues, especially with some of the "guests" who will be on the show, according to Bravo's site.

            So I'll repeat what I written that I assume WILL be allowed:

            I actually GASPED when I read first "just for LindaWhit and ghg" and then when I read it was Eric Ripert, BIG smile!


            MWWAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! Phaedrus! :-D :-D :-D

            ETA: Forgot the link for the new cheftestants:

            1. hmmmm just checked out the link, and noticed one of the "cheftestants," Andrea Curto Randazzo is quite an accomplished chef of enough years she could easily have been on TCM instead!

              And there are several other fairly well known chefs in the lineup as well.

              No, I won't be missing Toby this season! ;)

                It is a little surprising to see Andrea Curto in the mix.
