Spencer Ackerman critiques Top Chef “Bravo is getting way too predictable with the foreshadowing. Ever notice how whenever you see a contestant working out, s/he’s like two episodes at most from elimination? Think about it. Cynthia (though she quit). Betty. Tre. Sandee. The only exception I can think of is Elia. You never saw Hung, Harold or Ilan work out.” But maybe the best chefs just don’t waste time working out. Maybe they’re in a constant meditative state running through possible future challenges and what brilliant dishes they’ll bang out in response.
