"I pack a bag, I say goodbye to my people… And you get there and it’s super weird," he said. "They take you to this house. They’re like, 'Don’t ask any questions.' You get there day one, they come in your room, it’s like your first night in prison. They're like, 'Empty your pockets, open your mouth, what have you got, give me your wallet, watch, wedding ring, keys...'"

In fact, all of the Top Chef Season 16 contestants should be commended for how they handled themselves during the competition, according to Kelsey. "Besides the fact that I won, I was just proud that we ended it the way that it ended. I was happy with who was on top. And we played the game that we all said we would. There was no nastiness, We were all very nice to each other, and that mattered more to me than anything, honestly," she shared. "So it was a good moment. Everyone was genuinely happy for each other."
Good thing no one seemed to notice because explaining why “Not toothsome enough!” he shrieked, while his handlers tried to calm him down” made my silent shaking laugh turn audible would have been long winded and embarrassing. Oh, and did I mention that we already had TWO CRUDOS in the top three? If there’s one thing I know about the Top Chef judges, it’s that they f*ckin’ looove crudos. One of which was made with tilapia, which I always thought was a no-no for some reason? Take a note, y’all, hot food is passé. Whip me up a dirt fish tartar or get the hell out of my face. <...> - by Uproxx [Vincent Mancini]
The whole conversation about high vs. low everything is such a mess right now in America. People are constantly saying stuff like “all these snob critics need to get over themselves and realize that superhero movies are just as adventurous and important as Antonioni.” But where are the critics who are denying this? They barely exist. Those jobs have been eliminated. Most of the critics who do have work would be terrified to come across as highbrow or snobbish. Personally, I love the Fast & Furious franchise, and the music of Franz Schubert makes me glad to be alive, and I know which of those two things I’m safer talking about on Twitter. Sixteen seasons in, Top Chef is a show that understands that potato chips are an amazing miracle, and so is confit de canard with furikake <...> - by The Ringer [Brian Phillips]
