Check out the preview videos for tonight's episode of Top Chef Just Desserts!

My recent Top Chef revelation: Sally and Melissa have the same last name! Could they be second cousins?! Looks like my Sherlock Holmes powers of investigation need to get to work!

For plenty of snark and a dash of good ol' fashioned sass, listen to the podcast tomorrow!

There's No 'Craig' in Team

A Big Pink Wow!

Though the preview videos don't reveal exactly what this week's Elimination Challenge is on Top Chef Just Desserts, I've gathered from my keen Top Chef intuition and Sherlock Holmes style powers of deduction that the pastry chef'testants have to create pink-hued, single-serving desserts for some of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Yes, we have our first Bravo show crossover of the season. (Rule #97 in Top Chef: Always have at least one Real Housewife appearance per season.) Though do we really expect them to eat, and therefore, will they even be able to act as guest judges?

From the preview videos (below), we see that Craig gets to be his team's leader for this challenge, even though they're walking all over him and talking smack behind his back. We also get to witness Melissa griping some more and Orlando being his usual bitchy self. It's episode three already and it doesn't look like much has changed, eh?

Good news, though — TC Masters season 3 chef'testant Hugh Acheson (a.k.a.: "Hughnibrow") is bringing his snark and witty sense of humor back to our screens as he'll be at the Judges' Table tonight. Get your unibrow jokes ready, folks.
