Kevin Gillespie Explains Why He's Not on Top Chef All-Stars

New, 7 comments

Top Chef season six fan favorite Kevin Gillespie (and executive chef at the Woodfire Grill in Atlanta) went onto Facebook the other day to say that he was offered to be a contestant on the upcoming Top Chef All-Stars, but declined because in his mind, he's already a winner:

For those of you interested or perplexed....I was offered a spot on Top Chef Allstars. They tried to convince me that it would be a second opportunity to show that I could win. I honestly don't need a second opportunity to feel like a winner, and the outpouring that I get from everyone on this page reminds me of that on a daily basis.
