Okay, admit it. You’ve already accepted the fact that Stefan is going to win Top Chef 5.

Sure, there is a handful still alive but you know Leah is the next one out. And with the previews showing Fabio with a bandaged hand in the next episode, you can turn your speculation to where Top Chef 6 will be taped.

That is still a secret, but where you can go to try and get on next season’s show is not. Casting calls are underway across the country.



One thing you’ll notice from the list is that they’re making good use of head judge Tom Colicchio‘s restaurants.

Hey, why not? You get the PR from the casting calls and the cash from the bar tabs. Not a bad deal.
