I have watched all 11 seasons of Top Chef and this one was by far the most disappointing. They actually had some very talented chefs this season and as the season progressed, it became painfully obvious that the elimination decisions were controlled by Tom Colicchio. Of course I can't taste the food, however, the candid reactions of the guest judges and the guest diners/celebrity chefs made it quite apparent that their opinions were largely ignored rather than respected or valued. It was pervasive throughout the season, however, the finale made it blatantly obvious that the winner was a favorite of Tom's regardless of what anyone thought. I don't want to spoil this for anyone who has not seen the finale so I'm not revealing the name, however, it was a travesty. Furthermore, it becomes more and more apparent that the show has become mostly a vehicle for pushing specific brands (usually some canned/boxed/frozen item with processed ingredients). I understand the need to finance a show of this magnitude with product placement, however, it destroys the integrity of quality cooking and those chefs/home cooks striving to utilize better ingredients. This can easily be remedied by reaching out to smaller independent businesses that make an effort to create quality products. It is extremely hypocritical to talk about shopping at farmers markets, fresh, locally sourced produce and ingredients and the farm to table, or farm to fork movement, as just a hip trendy phrase but then failing to follow through and instead pushing low quality ingredients onto the "cheftestants" during the quick fire challenges. Also, is Padma there just to be eye-candy? Gratuitous camera shots of her slinky outfits really feel forced and a bit awkward and bring nothing to the show.

I own all the seasons of Top Chef, and actually just recently re-watched most of them. I say most of them because for me, the show lost itself after season 8. This season in particular was a travesty for me. I couldn't believe one of the people who made it into the finale. When the finale episode became available to watch, I skipped to the end to see who won, hoping against hope it wasn't the wrong person. When I found out, I couldn't stand to watch the entire episode.

When I watch the seasons, they kind of break into certain clumps for me. The first two remind me of the first season of the Real World, really raw and gritty. Seasons 3-5 felt more polished and there was a little less drama from the contestants which made it better viewing. It also felt like higher quality chefs had started entering into the show, making the cooking section better as well. Seasons 6-8 you could really start to tell that the sponsors were getting their grips on the show, but It wasn't so outrageously in my face I couldn't bare it, and I was still enjoying the cheftestants that were in the show. It still felt fun and interesting to watch.

Now with seasons 9-11, I just haven't really cared about the majority of the contestants. I feel bad for Padma having to pander the sponsors support for anything and everything that is in the show. Maybe they are just running out of ideas, but I also feel like the quickfires and elimination challenges aren't as interesting as they use to be. Apparently the chefs have unlimited budgets for challenges now as well, because Padma used to announce how much they could spend for a challenge, which could make things a little more interesting as well. It just doesn't feel fun any more, and this season hammered that home all to hard.

This show is pretty much the only reality TV I watch. It reached its apogee in seasons 6 and 8, in my opinion. Of course, a lot of the entertainment quality falls on the selection of the chefs, and this is always going to be subjected to the aegis on individual and group psychological processes, as well as how talent is able to demonstrate itself through the particular challenges.
I think one of the things I've noticed is a curious edginess to the judges, something other people have alluded to. I know they are very aware of the popularity of the show, and how they take on something of an "intangible air," in effect holding the viewer ransom to the fact that they are the only ones who are really tasting the food, and we develop and opinion solely on their individual responses to it. It is very different from other reality shows in that regard. It's like if there was a show called "top perfume," perhaps it would be popular, but how much individual sense of talent would the spectator actually have. People argue ferociously over the merits of one chef over the other, and it comes down to an aesthetic exercise on our part, how much we liked looking at the food, how much we like the chef, and what the judges had to say about it. It is quite unfair, and the narcissistic tinge the judges confer to their role is not helping; perhaps the fateful wheel of fortune is turning itself more perceptibly for them, and they realize how the show is dwindling in quality and number of spectators... 'Tis natural to do so, I suppose. This season in particular was relatively entertaining, though one of the "new regular judges" is far from a sophisticated food critic, and the discussions about the food was not inspiring or enlightened at all.
