Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

This is a tough one ya'll...What has:

  • Ego overload;
  • Awkward, obvious dubbed-over video (at times);
  • Shameless product placements of Toyotas, Whole Foods and now bands like The Bravery;
  • Ridiculous food challenges: using gas station ingredients to cook a gourmet meal;
  • An annoying yet addictive quality;
  • Lots of money to give to charity;
  • No sign of our Hometown Hero/Chef, Monica Pope?
  • Yep, you got it, last night's episode of Top Chef Masters on Bravo was full of the same old tricks we usually get with the generic Top Chef, but now with more conceit and a prize going to charity instead of the cheftestants. Last night, as we waited to catch a glimpse of our hometown gal, Monica Pope, our hopes were dashed about halfway through the Quickfire Challenge, when we realized - thanks to Twitter - that her episode airs next Wednesday. Look for her Wednesday, April 14, on Bravo at 9 p.m. Go Monica!

    Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
