Reality Check

October 24, 2006|By Sarah Kickler Kelber | Sarah Kickler Kelber,Sun Columnist

Top Chef kicked off on Bravo last week, and tomorrow at 10, it moves to its regular time slot. The premise is that 15 people compete in a variety of cooking-related challenges to see who wins the titular title (as well as some prizes). It looks like they've gathered another cast of quirky characters, most of whom seem to have quite a lot of cooking skill (and ego, too). But so far the best improvement is the new host: Actress and cookbook author Padma Lakshmi replaces Katie Lee Joel, who was about as natural a host as one of those animatronic characters you might see at Disneyland.
