‘Top Chef’ to start cooking in Vegas

Bravo to launch show August 26

Bravo has set an Aug. 26 launch for “Top Chef: Las Vegas,” the sixth installment in its popular culinary competition series.

The fifth season of the skein, which shot in New York and ended in February, was the highest rated so far, averaging nearly 3 million in the 18-49 demo and 4 million total viewers.

Seventeen chefs will appear in week one, to be whittled down to a champ by season’s end. The playing field has been extended since the show began in March 2006, when only 12 chefs competed.

Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio, Gail Simmons and Toby Young will once again serve as judges. Production takes place at the newly opened M Resort in Henderson, Nev.

Magical Elves will produce. Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz, Liz Cook and Casey Kriley are exec producers.
