Top Chef’s Marcel Vigneron developing a reality show for SyFy

Top Chef 2 contestant Marcel Vigneron, the subject of the show’s lowest moment ever and its ugly aftermath, is developing a reality series with SyFy.

Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen will follow molecular gastronomist Marcel as he and “his new catering and event company will be hired by a demanding client to produce an extraordinary celebration or event,” and Marcel and his team will “create everything from the immersive decor to a delicious menu that emphasizes Marcel’s unique brand of avant-garde cooking,” according to the network.

Marcel on SyFy seems like a good fit, from his occasionally mad scientist hair to his awkwardly weird personality, even as Marcel’s show was announced alongside the development of series starring an illusionist (Jason Latimer) and a “rogue inventor” known as “Mr. Impossible” (Dezso Molnar).
