Top Chef Duels

The new Top Chef spin-off premiered last night, with Marcel vs. Richard Blaise.

The format was two smaller challenges, one defined by each competitor, and then a main “duel”, the winner of the duel advancing to some final competition later int he season. (They said there are 18 competitors, 9 duels in total, so 9 people will advance, I’m curious what the format of the finale will be).
I thought it was pretty enjoyable. Marcel and Richard are both good TV personalities, the challenges were mostly fairly interesting, the food looked good. Definitely will keep watching.

Yep looks like fun:)

I liked it, too.

The only thing that might put me off at some point is the zip, zoom, delay. stretch camera work with “bloop” sounds. I don’t need the artsy fartsy camera and sound effects.
