WATCH: Top Chef New Orleans Cheftestants Rattle Off Their Michelin Stars, James Beards

Top Chef: New Orleans premiered last night, and, sadly, we have no bad behavior to report. Everyone was pretty respectful of one another, with the exception of this season’s token pompadoured douchebag (his word, not ours), who once just so happened to win the honored title of Philly’s sexiest chef.

Of course, the chefs in play this season boast real accolades, too, and impressive ones, at that. James Beard Award nominations, Michelin Stars, and celebrity chef proteges abound among this year’s crop of cheftestants, and they were all too happy to rattle off their resumes to us in their intro packages. Get to know some of the chefs competing this season in the two clips below!
