If, like me, you stopped watching Season 7 of Top Chef the minute Padma Lakshmi told Arnold Myint to pack up his Louis Vuitton knife bag, you might want to resume your viewing — at least until the voting for Fan Favorite is over.
The cheftestant who earns the most votes in an audience poll stands to take home $10,000. Not bad for a Miss Congeniality-style honor. That chunk of change would be a pretty penny for Myint to put toward his goal of starting a foundation with an international focus on children, education, food and the arts. Or he could buy some more hats.
According to the omnipresent media rep assigned to Myint by Bravo network, Fan Favorite voting will take place in August. More details to follow. (And remember, you can't vote on your DVR. Doh!)
