A few words about Top Chef

I have never been much for reality shows. I watched a little Survivor, got hooked on The Apprentice for a few seasons (it went downhill pretty rapidly, but the first season was actually kind of awesome), dabbled in Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and Trading Spaces. But the only reality show I have ever truly loved is Top Chef. T is into it as well, and it's a show we particularly enjoy watching together: we talk about the food, and the personalities, and speculate about what will happen next. Plus, he gets to watch Padma, and I get Tom Colicchio, which I think is completely fair. I confess it: Tom Coliccho is probably my biggest TV crush right now. His Diet Coke ad may be one of the best things ever.
