The 24 chefs competing in Bravo's new series are announced, plus guest judges!

on Apr 7, 2009 - The Dish0

Alright, guys, I didn't think I could get more excited about Top Chef Masters and the show's amazing judging panel then I already was, but when I heard who the chefs competing were, my eyes widened. And then, I found out about our awesome guest judges, and I just got so giddy I think i'm scaring people in my office.

Um, and who are the guest stars? NPH!!! (Neil Patrick Harris for those unfamiliar),  Zooey Deschanel, Lost writers and executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, Flipping Out’s Jeff Lewis, and for the first time, all past Top Chef winners will be together during an episode. The series will also showcase chef'testant fan favorites as well as appearances by Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio, Padma Lakshmi and Gail Simmons. (Did I mention NPH?!)

Anyway, find out who the 24 amazing competing chefs are and read their bios HERE.

You can catch all the Top Chef Masters action when the show premieres June 10th at 10/9c.

I am looking forward to this new show. Bravo puts out some of the BEST reality tv ever!! But I gotta ask, and pardon my not knowing, is the original Top Chef show done for good? PLEASE say NO!!!! I absolutly hope it has not been put on the shelf. However, again I am looking forward to this new one and what it has to bring to the table. Thanks, Bravo, for good TV

So when does it start?

But they're saying Kelly Choi is the host, not Padma. Is she not going to be on this series? I can't believe they got Wylie Dufresne, Hubert Keller, and Elizabeth Falkner to compete. Is this a whole series or just a one-off?

I'm looking forward to this. It will be interesting to see how much the chefs will come out of their comfort zones during the course of the show.

I don't know what "viewer" is talking about when they said "none of them masters". There are several chef's competing that are on the top of their game.

GO RICK BAYLESS !!!

the viewer who thought they are all lame-- you obviously have no clue about chefs or food-- all of the chefs are talented and i cant wait to watch!

that is just a stupid mix of chefs -- none of them masters.

And Gael Green is about 100 years old... no way she will enjoy, say, Wylie Dufresne's food. She is washed up.

Really sad to see some of those guys agree to do this...
