It’s the season 9 premiere of Top Chef Texas tonight, November 2, 2011. This could be the season with the most number of contestants to begin with, having 29 chefs. But there’s going to be the big trim down as well since only 16 chefs will advance to the competition. Yes, not one but 16 will be kicked off tonight. Who gets eliminated on Top Chef 11/2/11 results? As always, we are the first to provide it here.
The title of the first episode is “Eveything’s Bigger In Texas”. The chefs will be split into three groups for the challenge. They must excel in order remain in the competition. Some will not do well who some will have another chance to cook. For some, they will go home.
What will be the first Quickfire and Elimination challenge? Who will be sent home? Are you ready for some mouth watering dishes again?
