Alex Can't Finish His Dish & Is Eliminated From 'Top Chef'

Top Chef
Episode four of "Top Chef" began with a letter from Richard to the remaining chefs to help boost their spirits. Jamie noted that she was the final member of team rainbow, and already things were getting tense.

For their Quickfire, the chefs will have to create a breakfast amuse-bouche (which is a small one-bite sample) to celebrity Chef Rocco DiSpirito. The problem came when certain chefs created a sample that was more than one bite, and that was partially what put Daniel and Fabio on the bottom. The top three were Leah, Jamie and Stefan, with Leah taking home immunity and Rocco's new...

Misty May-Treanor Leaves 'Dancing With The Stars;' Brooke Burke Scores Big

Misty May-Treanor
Everyone got misty-eyed for Misty May-Treanor this week on Dancing With The Stars as she unexpectedly ended her run in this season's competition. During rehearsal Friday, Misty and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were practicing their jive when she tore her Achilles tendon in her ankle. She told the audience that she thought she had hit the judges' podium, but in fact it was the sound of her tendon snapping. She was rushed to the hospital, and after thorough evaluation she cannot dance again anytime soon. She was sure to be a top competitor (she was definitely a favorite of mine) and it is a re...

Recap: 'Dancing With The Stars': Season 7 Week 2

September 30th, 2008 9:52am EDT
Dancing With The Stars
After booting funny-men Jeffrey Ross and Ted McGinley from Dancing With The Stars, the remaining eleven stars only had four days to prepare this week's routine. Stars were asked to dance either the Rumba or the Pasodoble, the two most "theatrical" dances in the competition. Guess that's the consequence to suffer when you have a long, drawn-out three-night premiere event.

First up to dance was singer Toni Braxton and partner Alec Mazo. During practice this week, Alec decided to show Toni how dedicated he was to her by singing an awful rendition of her song, "Un-break My Heart." But the ...

'Top Chef' Season 4 Raises The Bar

March 13th, 2008 10:08am EDT
Top Chef
I'd like to personally welcome all of you easy chair culinary pundits to another season of "Top Chef." This show is the best food competition on TV; you can take your "Iron Chef" and shove it.

The kitchen is no place for theatrics, just nifty knife work, refined flavor profiles and the usual reality show drama. All of your favorite nitpickers (Tom, Ted, Gail and Padma) are back for this season's culinary sojourn in the windy city of Chicago. The new locale will assuredly provide us with more and different challenges spawned from the flavors of the second city, so let us tarry not any ...
