Eater reported yesterday that Top Chef contestant (and enemy to Angelo) Kenny Gilbert was named executive chef at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. Eater views this as a sign of the apocalypse — or at least a sign that Kenny doesn’t win Top Chef D.C.
In the sort of overheated (and practically illiterate) prose that gives blog writing a bad name, Eater blows this booger out of its nose:
Yes, today, ladies and gentlemen, named [RE-IT’S KENNY!-DACTED] Executive Chef at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Florida and that means, most likely, [RE-OMG, IT’S KENNY!!!-DACTED] didn’t win $125,000 from the makers of Dial Nutriskin because if he did, would [RE-KENNY-MOTHERFUCKIN-GILBERT!-DACTED] really take a gig at a country club? And since [RE-CAN YOU HEAR ME? IT’S KENNY! DAMMIT!-DACTED] didn’t win, it’s almost certain that [ANGELO SO-REDACTED-SA] did.
Eater may be right about what this announcement means for Kenny’s future on Top Chef, but best I can tell, the National Resort & Spa is not your average, cracker-in-the-woods country club.
Y&H Nation, what are your thoughts? Does this announcement (and my re-posting of it) ruin your Top Chef D.C. viewing now? Could Kenny still be victorious? Would Angelo ever cook at a resort and spa?
