The competition is definitely heating up when Bravo's Top Chef returns for Season 16 on December 6. Why? Well because Top Chef: Last Chance Kitchen is back — with higher stakes and, of course, some familiar faces. Season 15 Cheftestants Carrie Baird and Brother Luck, as well as Season 14 Cheftestant Jim Smith, will unpack their knives and return to the kitchen for a chance at redemption and a shot at the title. Hosted by Tom Colicchio, Last Chance Kitchen will give chefs the chance to get back in the competition thanks to fast-paced challenges that will offer the contestants the chance to prove they have what it takes to stay in the game.
Check out what's to come this season on Last Chance Kitchen, sponsored by Hidden Valley Ranch, above. And you can catch it weekly on Bravotv.com when it premieres directly following the supersized season premiere of Top Chef on Thursday, December 6 at 9/8c.
Last Chance Kitchen can also be enjoyed on demand or wherever you stream Top Chef at the conclusion of each week’s episode. And don't forget to check out the trailer for Season 16 of Top Chef, which heads to Kentucky, below.
