“But what a joy to see her again”, the return of this former candidate delights Top Chef fans

This Wednesday, May 15, the show of season 15 of Top Chef had a little air of nostalgia. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the program, the production had indeed invited former candidates in this new issue of season 15. The return of a candidate in particular pleased many viewers and they expressed their joy on the social networks.

On March 13, Top chef made its comeback on M6. Every Wednesday evening at 9:10 p.m., the show still attracts viewers who, despite not being able to taste the dishes, admire them visually. In this 15th season, we find the members of last year’s jury, namely Glenn Viel, Philippe Etchebest, Paul Pairet, Hélène Darroze, and two newcomers, the chefs Stéphanie Le Quellec and Dominique Crenn.

The show on May 15 was very different from the previous ones, with a collector’s side for the program’s loyal viewers, since several candidates who participated in previous editions of Top chef made their big comeback. They were in fact invited to judge one of the tests in which this season’s candidates participated.

The first winner of Top Chef made his comeback

To properly celebrate this 15th anniversary and, at the same time, the 200th episode of the show, there are no less than fifty candidates who were invited this evening to decide between the six participants still in the running. And viewers had the joy of finding certain candidates who marked the annals of Top chef since Romain Tischenko, who won the very first season of Top Chef, was there.

The very first winner of the culinary program was happy to return to the show. “It was nice to get a call from production! I wasn’t sure if I would come, because TV isn’t what I like the most. But I was happy to see some old people again” he confided just before the show.
