Bravo announces Top Chef 2 cast

Bravo has announced the cast of Top Chef 2, and it has grown from season one. For the second season, which debuts immediately after Project Runway 3‘s finale on Oct. 18, the cast has been increased to 15 chefs.

Their ages range from 23 to 46, but eight are in their 20s, and a total of 13 are in their 30s or under. The new chefs are:

Elia L. Aboumrad, 23, Las Vegas, NV
Otto Borsich, 46, Las Vegas, NV
Marisa Churchill, 28, San Francisco, CA
Clifford Crooks, 28, West Caldwell, NJ
Carlos Fernandez, 36, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Betty Fraser, 44, Los Angeles, CA
Mia Gaines, 32, Oakdale, CA
Ilan Hall, 24, New York, NY
Michael Midgley, 28, Stockton, CA
Josie Smith-Malave, 31, Brooklyn, NY
Emily Sprissler, 30, Las Vegas, NV
Suyai Steinhauer, 29, New York, NY
Sam Talbot, 28, New York, NY
Frank Terzoli, 39, San Diego, CA
Marcel Vigneron, 26, Las Vegas, NV

The larger cast isn’t the only change, of course. The series has also dropped its old host in exchange for a new one, and is moving to LA from San Francisco. Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons will stick around, however.
