Casting has begun for the Canadian edition of Top Chef, and don't think you can be crafty and sneak across the border because the US edition didn't pick you: contestants have to be a "Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada."
The 19-page application (pdf) is something to behold, for it includes this ominous statement: "I also recognize that proof of damages suffered by Producer and the Network in the event that I breach any provision of this certification will be costly, difficult and/or inconvenient." And/or! Also, you'll have to pay them "One Million Canadian Dollars (CDN$1,000,000) per breach." So no breaching, okay?
Side note: We like our version of the Top Chef Canada logo better. Deadline is June 14th.
