So, the new cast for Top Chef has been revealed. Now ya’ll know I love me some cooking shows. They’re the biscuits to my gravy, if ya know what I mean. And Top Chef is my favorite, hands down. The new season starts March 19 and this time the culinary contest goes to Chicago. But Windy City, Windy Schmity. Let’s play “Find the Lesbian!” It’s like “Where’s Waldo?” but -- you know -- gay.

OK, right off the bat two are easy. Like, easy-peasy. Sure, they might not actually be gay. But, dude, come on. A faux hawk? A bandana? Puh-lease.As for the rest, hmm. I see some motorcycle boots, so, minor ping there. And I see a vest, well, anything is possible. But even if no one turns out to be a gay lady, we’ll always have Padma. Mmmm, Padma. Mmmm.UPDATE I: Oy. It’s been a typo kind of week here at Surrenders. “Find the Lesbians!” (not “Fine the Lesbians!”). Though, fining them would also be interesting. I could impose a set fee for each lesbian cliché perpetrated. Already, those two are in the red with the hair and head gear. I could make a mint off this. Typos rule. Ahem.
UPDATE II: Believe it or not, Padma is holding an onion. I thought it was an apple at first, too. Though, regardless, if she was holding it for me I’d still happily take a bite.
UPDATE III: Dude, my gaydar is spot on! In fact, I was being too conservative. This season of Top Chef has not one, not two, but three (yes, THREE) gay ladies! Ms. Faux Hawk (Jennifer), Ms. Bandana (Lisa) and the heretofore unmentioned Ms. Big Earrings (Zoi). Now, I was kind of feeling Zoi, but didn't mention her because my only visible cue (other than just that gut, “Hey,” feeling) was that she was clinging for dear life to the one, most obvious lesbian chef, Jennifer. I love how Bravo has put them in their own gay power triangle in the cast photo. Lesbian Chefs -- activate! Form of -- pasta primavera!
