Paul Qui To Make His Acting Debut On Season Premiere Of Royal Pains

Summertime is upon us, so bust out the linen and seersucker, stuff your kids in a car, drive to the Hamptons, and watch Paul Qui filming a cameo for the season premiere of USA Network’s Royal Pains.

Bravo’s blog The Dish revealed that the Top Chef: Texas champion will make an appearance on the show’s season 4 premiere as a guest chef at the Hamptons Food Festival. Since this is a medical show about a doctor who caters to super-wealthy clients, we were ever so slightly worried that they’d blame Qui’s food for getting someone sick, but no. The Patient Of The Week is a competitive eater, and unless the show’s writers got a James Beard Award-winning chef on camera boiling a pile of hot dogs, Qui’s off the hook.

There’s also a lot of drama on the show about the doctor’s brother, and apparently the two of them are a team, but this season they’re not? And stuff happens? I’m sorry, I only watch Psych and White Collar and I’m probably just going to watch this one episode to see Paul Qui deal with people from the Hamptons, which will be hilariously awesome, even if it’s scripted.
