Top Chef: Fan Favorites and 'Culinary Boner' T-Shirts


I hope you all remembered to watch the Top Chef: Watch What Happens Chicago Reunion last night. Honestly, I found it weird that this season they chose to film and air this special after the finale, as I imagine that many people assumed with the finale that the season had concluded. At any rate, if you missed it here are the most interesting tidbits from the hour:


1. Richard - this season's Willy Wonka - appeared via satellite because his wife (yes, his wife) was giving birth. Awwww!


2. Lisa insists that people come up to her on the streets and call her a b%#$.


3. Andrew's undeniably most hilarious line of the season, "I have a culinary boner" has been made into a T-Shirt by Bravo which can be purchased here.


4. Dale spoke graciously about his elimination (though Tom Colicchio confirmed that had he been there, he would have sent Lisa home) admitting that he screwed up his dish and because of that, he was ok with being sent home. Who likes Dale so much more ever since he got eliminated and then reappeared in the final episodes and at this reunion?


5. Zoi and Jen awkwardly dismissed a question about whether they had broken up or not. Interpret that as you please...


And...finally:


6. Stephanie was chosen as Fan Favorite (in addition to obviously the bigger title of Top Chef). I know there is no way around this since voting occurs before a winner is crowned, but it honestly kind of stinks that somebody else couldn't get a small slice of victory too. Stephanie seemed to agree, as she appeared more uncomfortable than anything else with receiving the title. For that reason though, Stephanie continues to be awesome and entirely likable!


That about sums up the reunion! If Stephanie wasn't the fan favorite, who do you think would have been the most deserving?
