On August 6, Bravo will once again turn to its most successful reality franchise when it debuts Top Chef Duels. The newest iteration of the Emmy Award-winning show pits eighteen of Top Chef‘s most talked-about contestants from prior seasons against one another in a series of head-to-head battles.
Two high-profile Boston chefs will be returning to the spotlight when Top Chef Seattle winner Kristen Kish faces off against Top Chef Chicago winner Stephanie Izard in Episode 108. Also, Sweet Cheeks Q’s Tiffani Faison will appear in her third Top Chef offshoot when she matches up against Dale Talde of Top Chef Chicago and Talde in Brooklyn.
In each episode, two chefs will face-off in three rounds testing their skill, creativity, and speed. The third and final challenge of each episode will decide who moves on to compete in the finale. In the end, 10 chefs will battle each other for a chance at a $100,000 grand prize and a culinary adventure that will be featured in Food and Wine Magazine.
Like Top Chef All-Stars, Top Chef: Masters, Top Chef: Just Desserts, and even Life After Top Chef before it, Bravo’s newest culinary competition will feature plenty of familiar faces. Aussie celebrity chef Curtis Stone will serve as both host and judge on the program, with Gail Simmons, Wolfgang Puck, and Hugh Acheson rounding out the judging panel.
Guest judges will include Shailene Woodley, Pink, Rob Zombie, and the cast of Brooklyn Nine Nine. Other celebrity chefs to appear throughout the series will include Daniel Boulud, Michelle Bernstein, Andrew Zimmern.
