Oh, dear: former Top Chef cheftestapant Carla Hall is now a spokesperson for Fancy Feast. You know, the cat food company?
She's helping them with a flavor creation contest in which cat owners can submit recipe ideas to be turned into actual cat food — no word if she'll be taste-testing them herself — and she'll also be starring in some web videos depicting the cat food flavor creation process. Hootie hoo?
Please to note that she is not the first ex-cheftestapant to promote pet food: Last year Kevin Gillespie promoted Purina Beggin' Strips. One more and we can officially call this a trend.
Here's a super slick video of Hall explaining the whole thing:
