Cosmopolitan to host new season of ‘Top Chef Masters’
Thu, May 24, 2012 (1:30 p.m.)
Cosmopolitan’s foodie-famous profile will continue to rise this summer. Bravo TV filmed the fourth season of the popular chef competition show Top Chef Masters in Las Vegas last year, with the Cosmopolitan acting as cheftestant headquarters. The competitors lived in the hotel and bounced all over the property during the shoot for Season Four, which will premiere July 25. The Cosmo is planning an invite-only viewing that night at its Boulevard pool, but it will also host a weekly series of Top Chef Masters parties at the pool, broadcasting the show on the 65-foot digital marquee every Wednesday at 9 p.m.
Chefs with Las Vegas connections—including Hubert Keller, Roy Yamaguchi, Rick Moonen, Alex Stratta and Mary Sue Milliken—have competed in past seasons of the show, which donates money to various charities of the contestants' choice. There are no locals representing in season four, but expect to see lots of appearances from the Cosmo’s stable of chefs and restaurants.
