I was so disenchanted with Top Chef during season 2 that I swore I would never watch it again. Now, however, my viewing choices are limited by my lack of a tv set, so I have tuned back in. I felt very manipulated by the show during season 2, as the editing had made the fellow who won so unsympathetic. When he took the top honor, I was disgusted.
This season I would like to see Richard, Stephanie or Antonia take it, and the way things are going, one of them probably will.
