  • Never before seen footage!

    It shows the personalities of the chefs. As well as the judges. Showing that Stephanie won the top prize. And deservedly so as she became the first female chef. Glad that she won a prize as she earned it. Really didn't like the way the chefs cursed as Tom C was right. Is that the way that they would want to be portrayed as he laid it down the line! Loved it when they showed the chefs in the stew room acting like a bunch of crazies. Plus, a mouse in the judge's table that is so funny. Can't wait for season five. Bring it on!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • This season two commemorative items were created for the season. First was the usual t-shirt with Andrew's line from "Wedding Wars": "I Have a Culinary Boner." Second, a onesie for Richard's daughter was made using the Top Chef logo, only replacing the knife between the two words with a silver spoon. Both items were, of course, available for purchase at Bravo's website.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Jose Andres: (at the Judges' Table) Are we over?
      Anthony Bourdain: No, then we have to smash the hopes and dreams of the losers.
      Padma: Yeah, yeah, I gotta do my... (makes a tomahawk chopping motion) I need release.

    • Andy Cohen: We have a question from Tiffany D: What is the stew room?
      Andrew: The fifth level of Hell!

  • NOTES (1)


    • Ryan: (revealing Mark inside a speed rack) One hour to cook a hobbit... go!
      Hobbits, a race of peaceful, child- people of Tolkein's Lord of the Rings novels, were featured in a trilogy of movies made in New Zealand, Mark's home country. Like Mark, they were generally described as having shaggy, curly hair.

    • Andrew says that the stew room is the fifth level of Hell. In Dante's Inferno, the fifth level is full of people whose mortal sin was wrath, sloth, and sulleness, which seems approriate for the stew room. Another level of Hell where Top Chef contestants would seem to be likely to visit was the third, which is the eternal prison of gluttons.
