Top Chef delivers a delicious treat in its 17th season, All Stars: LA, as 15 former contestants return for another shot in winning the money for their kitchens.

Familiar faces such as Kevin Gellispe form season 6 and Melissa King from season 12 will be competing in the kitchen as they fight for the $250,000 cash prize, the largest prize in the show’s 14 year run.

This season features guest judges like Ali Wong, Randall Park and Kelly Clarkson.

Top Chef is a reality tv show involving a group of highly skilled chefs going against each other in culinary challenges. The judges include well known professional chefs as well as celebrity judges. In each episode, a single contestant is eliminated leaving others with more difficult challenges to complete in order to win the prize money.

Host Padma Lakshmi and chef judge Tom Colicchio return. Gail Simmons, who was absent from season 16, makes her comeback as a judge.

Top Chef airs on Bravo with new episodes every Thursday. The entire 17 seasons of the show are available to stream on Hulu and YouTube TV.
