Normally, once a contestant's time on Top Chef is up, you either have to wait for guest judging cameos or -- if they're lucky -- Top Chef All-Stars. But now, Bravo is taking you inside the life of a chef ... err, Chef, with Life After Top Chef -- a documentary-style look inside the hectic lives of the show's alumni.
Featured in this first landmark season are fan favorites Richard Blais, Fabio Viviani, Jennifer Carroll and Spike Mendelsohn, who are all working their culinary magic in restaurants across the country. And yes, while you'll get to see all sorts of delicious food footage, what you'll also be exposed to is the other side of a chef's life -- the family time, the drama and time that goes into opening a restaurant, it'll all be there in Life After Top Chef. There's no elimination-based competition, just the natural competition of trying to make it in the restaurant world.
Life After Top Chef premieres on October 3 at 10/9p C.
