Oh, baby.  Get ready, Chile, because the biggest thing to hit TV since the telenovela, is a telenovela mixed with a cooking competition.  TVN officially announced today that the first-ever season of Top Chef Chile will premiere on Thursday, September 25.  This could be a big game changer for Chile and its cuisine.  Are you as excited as we are?

Although a full list of the competitors has yet to be released, the majority are now listed on the show’s official website.  The cast includes restaurant owners, a sous chef from Boragó, pastry chefs, a former television star, and more.  For now, check the partial list on the website, and see if you can pick out the others from the picture.  Primetime Chilean TV drama will never be the same.
