Can 'Top Chef' whip up another Emmy?

Top chef tv news"Top Chef" pulled off a shocking upset at last year's Emmys, winning best reality-competition show over "The Amazing Race," which had triumphed the previous six years. Of course, "Top Chef" also beat "American Idol," which has, surprisingly, never won and remains overdue.

Now that "Top Chef" has wrapped its latest season, does it have the right recipe for Emmy success again?

Some of our forum posters believe the program has sustained its quality this year as it brought back 18 past contestants for another chance to prevail. Winner turned out to be Season 4 runner-up Richard Blais.

"This is my favorite season of the show so far," writes our poster Benito Delicias. "I loved having them all back, I loved every minute of it whether I agreed with the results or not."

A different poster believes another TV program has the inside track this year based on the episode choices it has to submit to Emmy judges. Atypical says, "If 'Project Runway' submits either 'There Is an "I" in Team' or 'There's a Pattern Here,' then I'm predicting them to win reality-competition program outright."
