If there’s one thing we know about Padma Lakshmi, it’s that she keeps it real. Not only is she confident enough to show off her banging bikini bod, the Top Chef host is also honest about her weight, admitting that it definitely fluctuates (especially during the season). Ever the optimist, Padma took to social media to remind us that packing on a couple pounds has its perks — literally.
Fans of course responded, totally in support of her (hardly noticeable) weight gain.
Can't wait for next season of Top Chef? Take a peek at the Top Chef alums hitting the high seas in November with Celebrity Cruises' Top Chef at Sea.
