Tonight in Food TV: Top Chef Estrellas, the Telemundo Version


Welcome to our Spanish-speaking friends of Telemundo and Top Chef Estrellas! We can’t wait for the batshit craziness to begin.

Entertainment Weekly and Eater share the deets of the new telenova version of Top Chef, premiering tonight on Telemundo. But in true form, the new Spanish-speaking Estrellas (which translates to “Top Chef Stars”) version will be completely different. Says Entertainment Weekly, the new version “will feature eight Spanish celebrities cooking against one another in competition to raise money for charity.” So no, this isn’t really Top Chef at all:

The trailer for this incarnation of Top Chef promises “spicy new ingredients,” like a a blonde who seductively tears off her chef coat, a hunky guy who appears shirtless, and a handful of fully-made up Spanish TV stars who prance around in the kitchen in high heels.

Muy caliente! But yeah, it’s all a sham, says José Andrés.

Doesn’t mean we still won’t enjoy it though. Check out the very long trailer of Top Chef Estrellas below.
