Top Chef

Last night was the finale of season 5 of Top Chef (one of the handful of shows I am “obsessed” with watching). I was pulling for Carla but can live with Hosea’s win.

I’m not the only one in my family that finds this show addictive and as we were watching we are also googling information about the show. Evidently a lot of people are watching TV with a laptop on the coffee table – at least a lot of people at our house.

We didn’t start watching the show until Season 3 and I was surprised to learn that Padma Lakshmi hasn’t always been the host. Season 1 was hosted by Kathi Lee Joel. That name sounded familiar and when I checked it out (thanks to wiki) it confirmed my suspicion that she is Billy Joel’s wife.

When I excitedly announced this to the family, Kelli (our soon to be 21-year-old) responded:
“Who’s Billy Joel?”

I now officially feel old!

  1. No need to worry, Padma is a far better host.

    Wish I could encourage you more about the old thing, but I'm in my 30s now so any claim on youth I once had is far gone. Its only playing with the Animals that still makes me feel young.
