    Love the show at the beginning and still do – and I think having an unusual guest is good from time to time, it shakes up the format, but give me Eric Ripert any day : )

    Chefs are terrible this season, and last night's episode was the worst I've ever seen. We want to watch COOKING, with awesome ingredients, not idiots riding around on bike's scrounging for a kitchen??? The hosts have become so full of themselves, when's the last time any of them did anything but rest on their culinary laurels? I miss Blaise, Voltaggio, etc. Bring back GOOD chefs and REAL competitions!

    Top Chef's format is getting old. I say lose the quick fire challenge, and instead follow the next iron chef format. Have 1 main challenge, pick the 2 bottom chefs and have them duke it out in a head to head competition to see who goes home.

    I love "Top Chef" but it's changed over the past few seasons, and not much for the better. I agree – Charlize Theron's episode was great, and last night's Peewee Herman was beyond stupid and embarrassing. The man is a perv. But I still love Tom, Padma, Gale, and most of their guest judges. I'll continue to watch the shows, and I'm really enjoying the Top Chef-inspired entrees that Healthy Choice is putting out in their frozen meals. I keep the freezer stocked with them and grab one to take to work for lunch each day. The Chicken Margharita is awesome.

    Best reality show on TV although, like Project Runway (2nd best) it has lost some 'reality" in favor of production glitz. Pee Wee was tolerable, an odd choice though. Now Charlize Theron...that was a classy, fun, and creative episode!!

    Pee Wee was the man.

      It was pretty cheesy, but I thought it was fun too!

    "Top Chef" hasn't been any good for 2 or 3 seasons now. It used to be one of my favorites, but now it is just contrived and predictable.
