Tonight's Top Chef Masters preview: Getting fruity and Modern Family

Perfectly Styled Fruit Plate

Catering for Modern Family

This week's episode of Top Chef Masters has me really scratching my head. From the looks of the video of the Quickfire Challenge (below), whomever wins the challenge — styling a fruit plate — goes straight into the finals round. Does this mean that the winner of it doesn't have to participate in the Elimination Challenge or that the Quickfire will be after the Elimination? Quit screwing with my head and the rules, Bravo!

All confusion aside, it is apparent that this week's chef'testants will be catering for the cast and crew of ABC's Modern Family — another shameless plug for a show by featuring B- through D-list "celebrities" judging the food of some of the nation's finest culinary pros.

Looking on the brighter side of things, Gail Simmons (and her cleavage) will definitely be making an appearance this week.

Well, as Bravo says, let's just "watch what happens"...before we tear it apart with snark and humor.

Tune in to Bravo tonight at 10 pm EST/9 pm C, join our Twitter party during the show (Jeff: @TheStew, Katie: @culinarypirate), and listen to our podcast here tomorrow! (You can even download us on iTunes!) Check out our fellow Top Chef fanatics, Please Pack Your Knives And Go and All Top Chef, for the latest news (and some laughs).
