Top Chef All-Stars Premieres Tonight

Top Chef Season Eight premieres tonight with a cast of all-stars (contestants from previous seasons who didn't take the title) and it sounds like we may be in for a treat.

The show's remaining cast

includes: Stephen Asprinio and Tiffani Faison (season one); Elia

Aboumrad and Marcel Vigneron (season two); Casey Thompson and Tre Wilcox

(season three); Antonia Lofaso and Dale Talde (season four); Jamie

Lauren, Carla Hall and Fabio Viviani (season five); Jennifer Carroll and

Mike Isabella (season six); and Tiffani Derry and Angelo Sosa (season


Who will be the first to go?

Top Chef All-Stars premieres on Wednesday, December 1 at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
