Redesigning Top Chef Season 5

vinhotinto75 | Feb 2, 2009 07:59 AM

I've watched "Top Chef" quite a bit since season 3 in Miami and I think the main probelm with Season 5 has been that it lacks the character of the NYC area. Episode 1 tried to get the people out to the different boroughs and areas, but aside from that experiment/challenge, it is rather dull and lackluster. Furthermore, aside from the contestants, the judges comments and guest judges have been insipid.

If you were to redesign the show and truly make it Top Chef NY, what sort of challenges would you come up with to truly make it Top Chef NY and not a gentrified 2009 Bravo version?
