Fantasy Top Chef

Okay, fantasy sports fans, have I got a game for you!!  More drama than fantasy football, more amazing than fantasy golf, it’s

Fantasy Top Chef

Okay, let me say that I am in NO way affiliated with Bravo TV, Top Chef, or any of its affiliates, nor am I encouraging gambling or anything like that (which can get you in a lot of trouble.)  I’m just a guy who hangs out with a lot of degenerate gamblers…

Fantasy Top Chef Rules

What I am advocating is that you get a group of friends together and pick chefs.  (I suggest a draft.  Draw numbers out of a hat and then go up the order and then back down.  So if you had 8 players, you go 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 then 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 to ensure fairness.)  Determine winners by either:

  1. The player with the winning chef
  2. You can do a points system

I was thinking about doing this:

  • 1 point for each Quickfire win
  • 2 points for each Elimination Challenge win

Highest point total in the end wins.

One Small Hitch

Now, Top Chef is weird since there 17 competitors so you’re going to have a few chefs left (since 17 is not divisible by anything.) If you’re doing points, that’s no big thing just leave those players undrafted.  If you’re doing pick a winner, you have a number of options.  The easiest thing to do is let players whose chefs are elimiated select from those remaining.

Just a thought.  Something fun to do!


PS If other bloggers want to join in, I figure this is a great way to do a blog carnival. We blog about each other and the challenge.


  1. oooh – this sounds fun! And I feel better after getting your email! I’m in! I’ll do the whole thing on my food blog –

    the only thing is, I have to DL the episodes, so I might want some extra time. 😉

  2. Sweet. Extra time is cool. Half the time I take a day or two to watch an episode anyway. I don’t expect to be a post Nazi. That’s totally not what this about! 🙂

    We’re all about being groovy and just talking about food and Top Chef.

    Welcome aboard! 🙂

  3. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.
