    Top Chef Duels (premieres Wed. Aug. 6 @ 10PM) - News and Speculation

    Top Chef 12 won't premiere until the fall, but in the meantime...

    "Top Chef Duels"

    Produced by Magical Elves with Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz serving as Executive Producers.

    Previously announced as "Top Chef Extreme," this new culinary competition series hosted by celebrity chef Curtis Stone brings back eighteen of the biggest, boldest and most talked-about personalities from past seasons of "Top Chef" and "Top Chef Masters."

    In each episode, two former chef'testants will face off head-to-head in three rounds of extreme culinary challenges, each being given the chance to up the ante and challenge the other's culinary skills. The winners of each battle will compete in the season finale in a test of pure gastronomic talent and ambition until only one is standing to claim the $100,000 grand prize and culinary bragging rights.

    Curtis Stone will also anchor the judges table with Gail Simmons, while chefs Wolfgang Puck and Hugh Acheson and special guests will round out the judging panel throughout the series.
    Here's an brief article from Bravo's site featuring Tiffani/Season 1 and David Burke, who will be competing:

    I always thought Gail needed to host TC. She would be a better host than Padma IMHO! Glad she is hosting this.

    I'm really excited to see how this new format will work! I think it's a great idea for an "all-star" type season, the one-on-one battles will really bring those egos out in full force!
