Top Chef question/interviews?

Does anyone know when those in-episode interviews take place on Top Chef'? Are they done during the production day, end of day, end of the season?

  1. Don't know for sure, but seems some one day of, others end of season. Looking at what outfits are worn helps detect ones filmed same day versus later.

    1. Probably varies. I know that some of them are done several days after the rest of the episode. Season 2, Elia shaved her head, and the producers gave her a wig (with a headband on it) to wear for interviews. You can see her wearing this wig in interviews for a couple episodes before the one in which she actually shaved her head.
