Top Chef Masters premiered on Wednesday night. The format is very similar to the Top Chef series with a few twists. First, all the contestants are established chefs. They are competing for a charity of their choice. On the first episode, there was a Quick Fire Challenge and the "Elimination" Challenges. After both challenges, the one chef with the most stars from both challenges wins the round, some money for their charity, and a spot in the final round.
I loved the first episode. The chefs looked like they were having a lot of fun with it. For the most part, they knew what they were doing barring a few mistakes. During the Quick Fire challenge, the red headed girl scout was hilarious. I <3333 her! I was also really happy with the winner of this round. He definitely did a fantastic job during both challenges.
I can't wait for the next episode. Anyone else watching? What did you think of the first episode?
