Top Chef's Ed: What's the Point of Last Chance Kitchen?

Edward Lee would like to point out that he technically was in the final four of Top Chef — for a few hours. But then Beverly , having won Last Chance Kitchen , returned to the game and out-cooked him for a spot in the actual final four. "It is what it is. I don't hold a grudge. She won fair and square," Ed tells TVGuide.com. "I shouldn't have used the smoked oysters, so it was all on me." Still, the Louisville-based chef is none too pleased with the second-chance secret competition for eliminated cheftestants.

Top Chef's Lady Business

There is no way to say this gently, so we're just gonna put it out there: The top women on this season's Top Chef are dreadful. If it hasn't been the seeming ineptitude of flaky "Last Chance Kitchen" returnee Bev, it's been the grotesque self-congratulatory attitude of Sarah ... //www.tvguide.com/News/Watercooler-Top-Chef-1042918.aspx?rss=breakingnews

Top Chef's Grayson: I Wasn't Excited About Last Chance Kitchen

Grayson Schmitz 's big Top Chef adventure came to an end when her stuffed chicken dish for guest judge Pee Wee Herman was deemed... well, we don't really know what. It was big and featured multiple seasonal flavors, but it wasn't under-seasoned or undercooked, like Sarah 's or Ed 's. "The whole thing is so subjective and I think it was really close, but ultimately they liked mine the least for whatever reason," she tells TVGuide.com. "And that's fine. Someone had to go home and it was me." But the New York-based chef didn't go directly home: She faced off with Beverly on Last Chance Kitchen to win a spot back on the show (the winner will be revealed and will re-enter the competition on next week's episode), which didn't exactly thrill her.

Pee-Wee Herman on 'Top Chef: Texas': Pancakes for Pee-Wee!

Pee-Wee Herman (real name Paul Reubens) was a guest judge on "Top Chef: Texas" Wednesday night (Feb. 1). The quick-fire challenge involved the cheftestants making pancakes for Pee-Wee - hilariously, they thought the guest judge was going to be a kid or something. But no. It was Pee-Wee.The cheftestants were then charged with creating a meal, bicycling it over to the Alamo (as one does) and then re-plating it and serving it to Pee-Wee and the judges. Check out these videos from the show. Did you find it fun? Or ridiculous?We did see one funny quip on Twitter about it - why doesn't "Top Chef" have the contestants cooking while riding their bicycles over a shark."Top Chef" airs Wednesday nights on Bravo.... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/02/pee-wee-herman-on-top-chef-texas-pancakes-for-pee-wee.html

Which 'Top Chef' Cheftestant Would Tom Colicchio Not Mind Hooking Up With?

Tom Colicchio and Carla Hall sat in the hot seats to play "Plead The Fifth" on " Watch What Happens Live " (Weeknights, 11 p.m. EST on Bravo), and host Andy Cohen did his best to cook up a whole mess of trouble for them. Former model and " Top Chef " fan favorite Carla now hosts daytime food and talk-fest " The Chew " (a.k.a., "The Soap Killer") on ABC. When Cohen asked her which of her co-hosts she was already tired of, she was suitably diplomatic. "None of them! I love them all!" When it was Tom's turn Cohen asked, "which former 'Top Chef' Cheftestant would you not mind hooking up with?" An obvious candidate for pleading the fifth, right? But no: Tom actually answered the question. Unlike Fabio Viviani, who picked the "smoking" Jen Carroll , Tom chose Camille. "Top Chef" fans will remember Brooklyn-based Camille Becerra from her brief stint on Season 3. Although she was eliminated in Episode 4, she obviously made quite an impression on the head judge. Tom was not so forthcoming when asked "Gail, or Padma?" and plead the fifth. A wise choice. Join Andy and the celebs in the clubhouse for "Watch What Happens Live," Weeknights at 11 p.m. EST on Bravo .

Top Chef's Chris Jones: I Had a Bad Feeling About Everything

It was a day of highs and lows for Chris Jones on Top Chef . After winning the quickfire with Grayson , he came up short in the head-to-head elimination challenge with his healthy, but ultimately dry and underseasoned, take on a chicken salad sandwich for a 200-person block party. "I did everything I was supposed to do in prep and was way ahead of schedule, but I didn't think about a 110-degree day in the heat and having sandwiches sit out there with no refrigeration," Jones tells TVGuide.com. Find out why he knew he would get cut, why he was disappointed in the challenge, and the story behind his half-ponytail.  //www.tvguide.com/News/Top-Chef-Chris-Jones-1042220.aspx?rss=breakingnews
