According to several internet sources, Top Chef Season 6 will be filming in Las Vegas.

Kate Aurther, television editor of the LATimes twittered this information yesterday. YumSugar reported the news last week. Apparently they start filming next week.
EaterLA reports that it will be filmed at the M Resort in Henderson. M Resort was intended to be a property friendly and appealing to Las Vegas locals. WHY? I have no idea. The locals I have met are either happy enough to stay away from the strip altogether, or venture into the strip when they want a night on the town, an amazing meal or a little gambling, and then get the hell out. Maybe all of the above activities will be more appealing in Henderson. Nevertheless, the Marnell company must see a need, no matter how poorly timed. Marnell properties is also responsible for Silverado Canyon, a planned estate community in Orange County.

LATimes officially reported it, along with the news that our beloved and sexy Tom Colicchio has grown a full beard, emulating the now questionably insane/comic genius/master thespian Joacquin Phoenix.

In other Top Chef news, LATimes reports a spin off called Top Chef Masters. While I had previously heard rumors of this fun project, I had not heard that during a press conference one reporter complained about Top Chef's unwillingness to hire a host (hostess) who "looks like someone who enjoys food." The Top Chef Masters' hostess in question, Kelly Choi, is certainly as delicate as they come.

While not a thin person per se, I certainly know lots of thin food bloggers who could out-eat me given any kind of cuisine, on any kind of occasion. Additionally, one of the now infamous stories told about my petite mother has to do with someone mentioning that she must, "eat like a bird". To which someone nearby who knew her well replied, "Yes, a vulture." Go, Mom!
