Bravo Announces 'Top Chef' Season 6 Contestants

From Eater.com: "Now that filming in Vegas is complete, Bravo is ready to announce the 17 cheftestants competing in the upcoming Top Chef 6, debuting this Aug. 26 at 9 p.m. EDT. Unsurprisingly, the soon-to-be reality stars are better looking than ever, and building on the success of last season's Team Europe, we have a Frenchie in the mix. There are more exec chefs and chef/owners representing a wider swath of the country, and oh goodness, it looks like there are brothers competing. Bryan Voltaggio is a cheftestant with a restaurant caleed VOLT while Michael Voltaggio comes from LA's Bazaar."
