Top Chef Odds Week 10: Portman and Paul

October 27th, 2009

Tempers are flaring. Patience is wearing thin, and the competition is reaching a boiling point. Check out these odds to see which chefs are most likely to keep their cool.

  • On tonight's episode of Top Chef: Las Vegas knives will come out, egos will flare and illusions of grandeur will die in a flurry of flames on the burners at RM Seafood. It's time for Restaurant Wars.

  • Robin makes Jet's top 10 list of people that he wants to punch in the face, and he imagines Top Chef lucha libre-style.

  • Some chefs thrived under Charlie Palmer's watchful eye and seasoned palette, others just got schooled.

  • The wonder brothers, Bryan and Michael Voltaggio, are no longer at the head of the Top Chef: Las Vegas class. In the lead in this week's odds a red-haired southern boy.

  • What happens after the producers leave the chefs'testants alone in the Top Chef: Las Vegas house? They go a little bit crazy. An online video series sheds some light with hilarious results.

  • If only the slot machines at McCarran worked like the ones on Top Chef: Las Vegas, we'd have tourists running off in search of adventurous, nutty, Asian food instead of clutching their winnings like dogs on a bone.

  • On Top Chef: Las Vegas, the chefs tap into the fifth flavor and try to craft a home cooked meal without getting cooked into a corner.

  • Wynn Las Vegas Director of Race & Sports Operations Johnny Avello deconstructs the chefs' performances on the deconstruction challenge for this week's new lines.

  • The Angel/Devil Quickfire this week was supposed to represent the good vs. bad or nice vs. naughty opposites of cooking. My angel and devil would have been a Thai duo, as I’m sitting in Bangkok writing this piece.

  • Last night the chef'testants were asked to deconstruct classic comfort food, but the challenge nearly caused a few chefs to breakdown.

  • Will Robin make it out of the next episode to cook another day? I wouldn't bet on it.

  • From big-name DJs to some awesome live music picks, how to get your party on this LDW.

  • Dance past and present this season at the Nevada Ballet Theatre.

  • The best of the arts in galleries, on stages and even in the old Western Hotel.
