Bravo Reveals 'Top Chef: Texas' Finale Locations
Top Chef has been tearing up Texas, but for the finale they are leaving the Lone Star state alone. So where are the final cheftestants heading?
Did you think we just going to tell you?
Nope, this year we decided to let the fans figure out where the finale locations were through Twitter. @Bravotopchef tweeted its fans to follow judges Tom, Padma, Gail, Emeril, and Hugh for clues. Every 15 minutes to fans the judges took to the Tweets to leak hints -- Tom kicked it off by mentioning it's the third largest in its country. Then Padma heralded the locale as the birthplace of the Chinese buffet and Emeril shared this was also where Greenpeace was founded. Gail revealed that one other important thing was born in the city -- Jason Priestly. Finally Hugh tweeted the pic above.

It’s Whistler and Vancouver!
Top Chef Producer Dave Serwatka said the crew decided to head north because, "we thought it would be fun to contrast the sweltering heat of Texas with the snowy mountain cold of Whistler."
We doubt the chefs minded the change of temperature one bit.
Don't forget to watch the final five compete with Pee-wee Herrman Wednesday at 10/9 C.
