Denver has not one, but two contestants on Bravo's tenth season of Top Chef, which was filmed in Seattle and will start airing in November. The lineupincludes Jorel Pierce, the exec chef of Euclid Hall, and Tyler Wiard of Elway's. And yes, there's a third Colorado chef, Eliza Gavin of 221 South Oak Bistro in Telluride.
But does Wiard have a secret weapon?
I love Denver, I fly in there sometimes in the hopes I get stranded :-) But the guy from Elway's -- I wonder if he'll convince John to make an appearance, or if they'll cook at the Seattle Seahawk's stadium. I'm also interested to see how a nutritionist --chef gina keatley -- is going to cook?
Would an appearance by John Elway seal the deal for Tyler Wiard? Post your thoughts below.
