Tweeting 'Top Chef': The double-entendre episode

Tonight's quickfire on "Top Chef: Las Vegas" looks tailor-made for mind-in-the-gutter humor, doesn't it? Padma Lakshmi calls the chefs from a hotel suite, where she and Nigella Lawson are in (separate) beds, and tells them they have to serve the women breakfast. The inventor of modern food porn and perhaps its most accomplished current practitioner (as evidenced in the above now-famous commercial) get together. Prepare yourself for a lack of restraint on the part of the editing crew, and let the raised-eyebrows and tasteless jokes fly.

On a more substantive note, who is next to pack their knives? It seems that Robin's time has come, but as "Top Chef" cruises toward the finale, Jennifer might also be vulnerable, if her downhill streak continues tonight.

As always, I'll be there, laptop in lap, Tweeting my heart out while the show progresses. Follow me at @wapofoodlive or in the space below.
