    There's been a name change (again) - it's now called Top Chef:Texas. Won't be picked up by your 'Top Chef' season pass.

    This is a great TiVoCommunity to subscribe to -- it's where I learned the above info:

    Thanks for posting this, DB. I was afraid to post it in this forum too as I didn't want people to think I was thread-bombing. hehe

    Yeah, I got tired of them doing that so I set up a wishlist so it grabs everything Top Chef related.

    It also grabs some interesting stuff as well.. :)

    Thanks for the note.

    Texas?

    I'm already annoyed by the usage of the word hot sauce, and the show hasn't even started yet. :)

    Im guessing we will see a lot of cowboy hats, an episode on barbecue, and hopefully some cheerleaders.

    Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders would be nice. :cool: I'm sure Tom will wear a hat once. And maybe all the contetants will do so once, too. Probably in the initial round. That's my guess.


    I suspect it will be like most any other season, though. You really don't get too much of a feel of the city they are really in.

    They sometimes have a lot of chefs with restaurants in the area as guests on the show. I don't know a whole lot about restaurants outside of Austin so it should be fun.

    Yeah.. I just know Dallas chefs, so I am hoping to see people like

    Dean Fearing
    Kent Rathbun
    Stephen Pyles

    Wouldn't be suprised to see former TC contestant Tre Wilcox, either.

    Top Chef usually starts out on the program guide as Top Chef: New York, Top Chef: Las Vegas, etc.

    But by the time it airs, the name will likely change to just plain "Top Chef". This is typical. I'm not sure of the reason.

    yup

    that's why I always keep the "Top Chef" season pass. When they eventually re-name it again, I stll get it. ;)

    Yeah; noticed that last night. Glad I caught it because the chef lineup this season looks incredible.

    There are like 36 chefs competing in this season.. I am not exactly sure how they are going to work this three city format.

    I'll bet what happens is the first episode is some kind of 'casting special' where they whittle down the 36 to 15 or so that will actually compete.
