Top Chef fans: At last, the wait is nearly over. Top Chef Las Vegas premieres tonight on Bravo. Read our thoughts on the upcoming season and share your reaction to tonight’s episode below.

We can hardly believe it’s already season six of our favorite food competition show. (Quick! Can you name all the past winners?) But here we are, in sunny Las Vegas, for another round of drama-filled competition for the title of Top Chef, and $125,000.

Tonight, we’ll be introduced to the 17 new cheftestants, at least one of whom will surely be asked to pack his or her knives and go by the end of the episode (and we’ll struggle to remember this unfortunate person’s name during some inevitable reunion later in the season).

Many of the biggest names in the restaurant business have already made their way to Las Vegas and will be stopping by to help judge a challenge. Of course, there will also be a few non-food celebrities along the way, like Penn & Teller and Natalie Portman. We’re most looking forward to an appearance by one of our favorite TV cooks – the always lovely Nigella Lawson.

So, what do you think is in store for tonight’s big premiere? Are you rooting for any cheftestants already? Making any special food for the big event? Tell us about it in the comments, and be sure to stop by after watching the episode to share your thoughts.

Plus, don’t forget about the finale of Top Chef Masters, which airs immediately following the Top Chef Las Vegas premiere. We’ll be back to discuss the big winner and losers tomorrow.
