Exclusive: Sixth season of 'Top Chef' shooting in Las Vegas
Earlier this month, the "Top Chef" judge twittered that filming on the next season of "Top Chef" had begun in Seattle.
But Friday morning, after a "Top Chef Masters" session at NBC's summer press tour, we heard otherwise. A series insider said Season 6 would be held in Las Vegas (as had been previously rumored).
Asked why Young would say Seattle, the insider shrugged: "That's just Toby trying to stir up trouble."
As long as the part about Tom's beard is true -- "Tom Colicchio has grown a huge beard! Looks like Joaquin Phoenix," Young had twittered -- all will be forgiven.
In other "Top Chef" news, Maria Elena Fernandez earlier blogged up some good "Top Chef Masters" scoops.
