Top Chef's Sam Talbot Engaged
Sam Talbot, the heartthrob finalist from Top Chef season two, is engaged to his Columbian girlfriend, Paola Guerro, he tells PEOPLE exclusively.
"I'm so in love it's unreal. We got engaged this weekend," Talbot gushed on Wednesday.
The couple met on Talbot's 30th Birthday in Brazil last December. "She's amazing. She's stunning," Talbot says.
Guerra, also 30, a model and T-shirt designer, visits Talbot at his new Montauk restaurant, Surf Lodge, every weekend or more. He adds: "She takes care of me in many ways. I'm quite lucky."
They haven't set a date yet, but chances are Top Chef judges Padma Lakshmi and Tom Colicchio will be there to support one of their best breakout stars. "Tom and I talk all the time," Talbot says. "We're friends."
