As the challenges on Top Chef Chile continue to get more difficult each week, the time in which the contestants have to complete their assigned tasks gets shorter, greatly increasing the WTF? element of the show.  That said, the participants’ irreverence for silly rules and impossible time limits is peaking, making, at least, for good drama in what has become a weird contest of teams, rather than individual chefs.  Back as always with a poignant look at just what’s happening over at TVN studios is our own Doris Bravo, equally irreverent in her commentary and unwilling to budge on one judge’s choice in jacket color.  (Salmon was a running theme last night).

On last night’s episode of Top Chef Chile Sergio Medel’s sass could not be contained. And we should all be grateful that going on episode six at least one of the contestants has a pulse. Meaning, after witnessing the ridiculousness first-hand (impossible time limits, henpecking judges, pointless demos, one flesh-colored chef jacket) Sergio has declared a war of irreverence. My kind of battle. Sergio is too much of a competitor to lose on purpose; his tact is to win with his talent while thumbing his nose at the absurd rules.
