Top Chef is a hugely popular reality competition featuring people who have a passion for cooking and go up against each other to determine the so-called top chef. The show originally premiered on Bravo in 2006, and it’s currently in its 14th season. The show is judged by a panel of professionals who hail from a diverse array of food and wine industries. Contestants are eliminated through every episode until only one stands. Top Chef has been so popular that its inspired many spinoffs and not just in the US but also in the UK and Australia. So, why do chefs go through all this effort? Well because the winner is awarded $125,000, not to mention the fact that they become celebrities and are invited to hundreds of shows throughout the year.
