Top Chef 3: First Impressions (Episode 1)

Other than America’s Next Top Model, I know you were wondering, “What other reality TV shows does Gwen watch?” The anwer, my friends, is too many to fess up to here. But, a favorite is definitely, Top Chef.
Season 3 opens in Miami, which I think is a great choice for Top Chef. Plus, we get to see the gorgeous Penthouse of the Fontainebleu Resort in Miami:

I imagine this will be the sexiest Top Chef ever. With a rooftop jacuzzi, how could it not be? Oh wait, Sam’s not on this season:

But, this season looks to have strong personalities & stronger cooking talent. I liked the Quick Fire challenge using buffet table leftovers in Gianni Versace’s former home:

I also liked the surf & turf with unusual items for both the turf & surf elimination challenge. Tre’s looked delicious:

I do think that Lia is the one to look out for:

She was (at the time of filming) the executive sous chef for Jean Georges in New York, one of America’s best restaurants, and didn’t even mention it in her intro. Very humble.
I think Micah’s going to be the bitch:

And I think Hung’s going to be the asshole:

He did pretty much tell us as much in his intro. All in all, it was a good episode. Any thoughts?
