Top Chef Masters will feature new judges, host
Bravo’s previously announced all-star Top Chef spin-off Top Chef Masters will feature a different cast from the regular series, with new judges and a new host.
Tom Colicchio serves as a consulting producer for the series, but the judges will be Gael Green, who Bravo says is a “renowned restaurant critic”; James Oseland, a “culinary expert”; and Jay Rayner, a food critic. Kelly Choi will host; she’s previously hosted a few New York-area food-related TV shows.
Bravo’s announcement says the new series “will feature 24 world-renowned chefs competing against each other in a series of weekly challenges, as only one chef will make it to the finals to compete for the title of ‘Top Chef Master’ and a prize for the charity of their choice.” It will feature quickfire and elimination challenges.
