Format: DVD
I enjoy many reality shows but once I discovered Top Chef with season 5 it became my total favorite. This year at the Emmys Top Chef won the Emmy for Best Reality Series. A huge honor definitely long overdue. This season - season 6 in Las Vegas - has been on preorder with Amazon for what seems like an eternity. I don't really understand why. I did purchase season 5 New York from them but Top Chef has a special deal with Target and many seasons available on dvd are only available at Target. I purchased this amazing 6th season of Top Chef at Target months age. Those of you endlessly waiting for it on Amazon know that you can get it at your local Target.

This season is definitely a must have for it is the season that earned the show its Emmy. Padma Lakshmi is the perfect hostess as always and head judge Tom Colicchio and judges Gail Simmons of Food and Wine and Toby Young are back with 17 new contestants. Each episode is amazing. There is a quickfire challenge which leads to the elimination challenge and all are creative and display the chefs at their cuilinary best or struggling at their problematic worst. Las Vegas works very well with this show and what I love is you don't need to be a professional chef or know all culinary terms to be interested in this show. I love food and am fully enthralled in the personalities involved but moreso with the skills these chefs possess and can't wait to see what dishes they will come up with. This season we have two brothers as contestants which adds a definite twist. Also the ante really is upped with the creativity of the elimination challenges. The mix of personalities and skills of the chefs is also very well done. Judging is done honestly and fairly and judge's table is a definite show highlight.

I love how serious the competitors are this season. Annoying personalities are kept to a minimum. That said, there is drama in the form of a nicely portrayed sibling rivalry (Voltaggio brothers); Eric Ripert has a protege in the group (Jennifer); and don't let appearances fool you because there's real talent coming from the "hillbilly" who is well-spoken and truly understands rich, comforting flavor (Kevin). But for the most part, these are professionals who help each other out without forgetting that they are competing against each other - that competitive tension is always there - and it works!

Last season was fantastic! It was like a competitive party game with the fun personalities of Fabio, Stefan and Carla. Great chemistry there. But this season is a bit more intense - and I think a lot of fans enjoy this just as much. There are some really big names thrown into this season - Thomas Keller (French Laundry, etc.) for one. Congrats Top Chef for pulling that off! Daniel Boulud made another appearance (always appreciated because he is Daniel Boulud). Nigella Lawson did a first-time stint as a judge. She looked somewhat lost, but I'll chalk it off to jetlag, plus the fact that she had to shoot a scene in bed for a breakfast in bed quickfire. And for entertainment, Natalie Portman hosted a dinner.

I'm glad that Padma is still the lovely host of the show - she really adds sparkle. Love the stunning fashion element she brings. Toby is back - less ascerbic, a bit more subdued - but definitely welcome. I used to like Tom Colicchio, but it seems he has withdrawn over the last several seasons. It reads as smugness, but maybe it's something else - can't figure it out. But there's plenty happening to keep us entertained and glued to the competition.

Great job Top Chef! Seasons 5 and 6 deserve top marks for fun and intensity. Don't be confused if people are a bit more quiet in their reviews - they're just busy happily watching the show.

(Absolutely adore this show - it's one of my favorites, if not THE favorite!) If you purchased the series on Instant Video, Amazon is aware that there's an issue with it not appearing in your library. When I look at the website on my computer, at my app on my iPhone, or through my Roku on my TV, Top Chef Season 6 doesn't appear, though if I find it in a search I'm able to watch it, because the system still recognizes that I purchased it. I contacted Amazon and they let me know that their team is aware of the issue and is working to resolve it, so wanted to pass the message along!

Just wanted to share the info, since it drives me crazy when people negatively rate a digital product because they had problems downloading it - that's not the author or the actors fault, why penalize the work for it?!

I am a huge Top Chef fan- I have watched and own every season of Top Chef, and Season 6 is definitely my favorite. The contestants are the most talented, the food and the challenges are the most interesting (it's the first season they started doing "High Stakes Quickfires", and I almost don't hate who ended up winning!

If you watch any season of Top Chef it should be this one!
