Top Chef’s Lee Anne Wong judging Chopped

Top Chef season one finalist Lee Anne Wong, who later worked on the show for four seasons as a culinary producer, is judging an episode of Food Network’s Chopped today. It’s not clear if she’ll be permanently in the rotation, or when this episode will be broadcast.

Lee Anne posted a picture of her with host Ted Allen and another image from the set on Twitter and her public Facebook page. On her Facebook profile, posted a photo of her with judges Scott Conant and Marc Murphy, and a caption that said “Eating crazy shit at 7 in the morning.”

In the comments, she wrote that “One episode= 10 hours of filming,” which is why the appetizers are served at 7 a.m. No wonder the judges are so cranky sometimes.
