Emeril Lagasse, a man known to enjoy kicking it up a notch or two, has joined Bravo's 'Top Chef' as a new judge. Lagasse and fellow new addition Hugh Acheson will join Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons as 'Top Chef' takes on Texas.
'Top Chef: Texas' breaks the formula and takes on three Texan cities -- Austin, San Antonio and Dallas -- as opposed to one.
This isn't the first time Emeril has teamed with 'Top Chef.' The famous chef appeared in the Season 5 finale as a guest judge.
