Looks like Bravo has a new addition to the Top Chef franchise: Duels, starting August 6. I'm torn about this one, it could be fun seeing previous TC contestants going one-on-one. Or the challenge rules could be so restrictive and convoluted that there won't be much for the chef's to do. I'm also wondering how much they're ripping off 'Knife Fight.'
Top Chef: Duels

It's too bad some of those chefs don't just stay in their restaurant kitchens.

Gail Simmons mentioned this new show in a radio interview she gave to promote "Top Chef: Boston".
Again, I question her value as a judge on this show since she is a vegetarian and won't be able to eat a lot of the dishes that will be prepared by the "chef-testants".
Though I think I may tune in for the first show, at least, since it's going to be a duel between Richard Blais & Marcel Nigneron.
