It's getting a little crowded on this boat, but Bravo has nevertheless squeezed three additional cheftestapants to Top Chef: The Cruise. These include the series' most recent winner Kristen Kish, runner up Brooke Williamson, and season nine's Chris Crary. In addition to these bright shining new faces, Bravo has also added some new activities to the itinerary that bravely seem to have nothing to do with food: Ping-Pong with Spike. Jet ski with Casey. Poker with Hosea and Mike. (Is gambling allowed on board the good ship Top Cheffage?) Anyway, details on "the one-of-a-kind culinary vacation experience" below.
