Top Chef is the kind of show that sneaks up on you. One minute a crowd in white coats and clogs are bumping into each other during frantic Quickfires, the next, the kitchen is nearly empty and every last morsel is being scrutinized. Coming into week 11, six chef'testants remain in the competition: bearded boy-next-door Kevin, almost-loving brothers Michael and Bryan, blonde and all-business Jennifer, Eli the youngster and is-she-really-still-here? Robin.
At this point, their exhaustion is almost palpable. The chef'testants' stress seems to seep through the TV screen, and the cooking appears to have suffered. Someone give these kids a pizza party, would ya?
On this week's episode we'll see the chefs prepare breakfast in bed for Padma and saucy brit Nigella Lawson. As Wynn Las Vegas Director of Race & Sports Operations Johnny Avello sees it, Kevin should continue to soar (c'mon, who doesn't love a chubby chef?) and Robin should pack her knives and finally clear out of the competition. Then again, we've been saying that for weeks. So, expect the unexpected; work up an appetite for twists; and, if you're so inclined, place your bets:
