Top Chef Restaurant Wars

This went out about 2 hours ago-- so fairly certain spaces must be gone but worth a shot?

  1. I did just post on the Top Chef-Boston Food Media thread that Tom Colicchio had just posted the same info on his Facebook page, so perhaps not full yet.

    Or perhaps they're looking for the "right" beautiful people to put on TV. :-)

    1. hope a hound makes it. I'm camera shy. Where are they shooting/hosting?

        I suspect the entire thing will be covered by some form of NDA?

        I'm not sure I'd want to do it, not because I'm camera shy but rather because the Restaurant War experiences usually seem fairly shoddy. In any case, based on a quick Twitter search it looks like they had PLENTY of applications. "Please let me taste cheftestant food!" (*ugh*)

      2. You also have to be available all day Saturday per the info they sent me. No thanks.

          You heard back? I emailed this morning and didn't hear back. What time did you email?

          1. re: VintageMolly

            Emailed at 10am. Heard back at 12:30. Wanted my Facebook, Twitter, photo, why I'm Top Chef fan, favorite judge.

            1. re: mkfisher

              Damn, emailed at 9:45, no response. Pre-screened for my low twitter follower count already?

              1. re: mkfisher

                I got the same email. I am up for it! Completed the answers, attached the head shot, sent it in. Should be interesting! :)

                1. re: Small Plates

                  I guess it should not surprise me that they want photos. It is tv after all. There go my chances.....

                  1. re: smtucker

                    As I said - the "right beautiful people", as determined by their production staff.

                  2. re: Small Plates

                    I'd probably have been automatically disqualified if I said my favorite judge was Anthony Bourdain. :-)

                    1. re: LindaWhit

                      I would vote for Krista Simmons on Top Chef Masters...

                    2. re: mkfisher

                      Crap, I just saw the announcement over on FB and sent in my email. No response. I suspect they've already picked everyone by now :/

                  3. re: mkfisher

                    All day? Ah, the joys of television. Thanks for the insight :-)

                    1. re: davis_sq_pro

                      I'd suspect that additional diner reaction shots are done then - or the commentary about various dishes.

                  4. I didn't get a response ....

                    Not sure what would happen if they saw my facebook page

                    this is my profile pic: http://www.glennhernandezstudios.com/...

                        I just love your Dump Cake. Actually your whole Dump line: big fan right here.

                      2. I just sent in my email. Maybe I can still get in. I think I am their type.

                          I'm definitely their type! They wanted super fans, so I think I'm a shoo-in:

                          > Paragraph about why you're the biggest top chef fan: "I've actually sat through a couple full seasons. Maybe two. And a few episodes from another season."

                          > Your favorite judge: "The guy with the hair?"

                          > Your favorite past top chef contestant: "Wait, this is the hair guy. I guess for judge I meant no hair."

                          It's a lock for me.
