Wow.  In case you missed last night’s tear-jerker of an episode of Top Chef Chile, our resident reality cooking expert Doris Bravo is back with a box of tissues, and some tough love.  For all the emotional details, read below.

In case you thought I might let up, I’m still clocking Top Chef Chile. Last night’s episode had a running time of 140 minutes; after last week’s epic, shaving 10 minutes off the clock made a small difference. A half hour of the running time was dedicated to emotionally torturing the contestants. By now we’re all used to a choppy start to Top Chef Chile: the credits roll and the judges announce the challenge. Then host Julián Elfenbein jumps in to peddle something from a sponsor (sometimes in split screen, so he can banter with himself) and then a few commercials run. After 15 minutes, though, the viewer knows that there will be cooking.

Top Chef Chile Restaurant Wars: 2.5 Hours Of Under Pressure Drama

By Doris Bravo

Whoa.  At two and a half hours long with commercials, last night’s episode of Top Chef Chile was an absolute epic.  With the first ever restaurant wars in Chile, tempers flared, pots were banged, flames flew out of every corner possible, and there was A LOT of crying.  Back, after trying to get some sleep, with a poignant look at last night’s episode that lasted well into the wee hours of the morning, is our own resident pop culture expert Doris Bravo, and she’s not happy.  If you watched last night and have something to say, let us know in the comments.  We’ve been getting them all morning.
