The new All Stars season premieres with a supersized episode on Thursday, March 19 at 10PM ET.
They announced the All Stars cast, which includes MANY names from Seasons 1-8:
Eric Adjepong (16/Kentucky) Washington, D.C. Karen Akunowicz (13/California) Boston, Massachusetts Jennifer Carroll (6/Las Vegas, 8/All Stars, Last Chance Kitchen) Philadelphia, PA and Washington, D.C. Stephanie Cmar (11/New Orleans) Boston, Massachusetts Lisa Fernandes (4/Chicago) Brooklyn, New York Kevin Gillespie (6/Las Vegas) Atlanta, Georgia Gregory Gourdet (12/Boston) Portland, Oregon Jamie Lynch (14/Charleston) Charlotte, North Carolina Melissa King (12/Boston) San Francisco, California Brian Malarkey (3/Miami) San Diego, California Nini Nguyen (16/Kentucky) New York, New York Joe Sasto (15/Colorado) Los Angeles, California Angelo Sosa (7/Washington D.C., 8/All Stars) San Diego, California Bryan Voltaggio (6/Las Vegas) Frederick, Maryland Lee Anne Wong (1/San Francisco and Last Chance Kitchen) Maui, Hawaii
Well, none of my 3 "must have" names are there: Nyesha and Grayson from 9/Texas, and Nina Compton from 11/New Orleans. I still get annoyed thinking about how Nick won that season. But at least Stephanie is getting her second chance, since she was eliminated when Nick tanked their team with immunity.
So glad Eric is back! I looked up his restaurant hoping to eat there but he and his wife have since closed the restaurant and gone into private practice. They design and create extremely lucrative dinner parties and events for people in the DC area. They do host dinner parties that they host when trying out new dishes but apparently they are really popular and fill up fast.
