Basic format[ edit ] Top Chef is a cooking show that uses a progressive elimination format. The beginning of each season starts with twelve to nineteen professional chefs selected through auditions. The chefs are brought to the season's host city or state, which typically inspires themes throughout the season. The chefs live in a provided apartment or house during the course of the season, with limited access to outside communication.
Each episode, the chefs participate in a Quickfire Challenge and an Elimination Challenge described below. The winner of the Quickfire Challenge is typically granted immunity from elimination, a prize, or another benefit for the following Elimination Challenge.
The loser of the Elimination Challenge, as the name suggests, is eliminated from the competition. This format continues until two or three chefs remain. Each finalist is challenged to create a full-course meal; the chef with the best meal as determined by the judges is declared the "Top Chef" of the season. Towards the end of the season, when only four or five chefs remain, the show moves to another location to finish out the competition.
In the Quickfire Challenge, chefs must cook a dish that meets certain requirements for example, using specific ingredients or inspiring a certain taste or participate in a culinary-related challenge for example, a mise en place relay race or a taste testing contest.

They are usually given an hour or less to complete these tasks. The Quickfire challenge traditionally begins with the host saying "Your time starts now" and ending with the host saying "Hands up, utensils down". Early in the season, the winning chef s are granted immunity from the episode's Elimination Challenge.
As the number of contestants dwindle, immunity is withdrawn and instead the winner receives an advantage such as being the team leader for a team challenge or getting first pick of ingredients or a prize such as chef's knives, wine, or cash. High-stakes Quickfire Challenges continued onward in further seasons. The twelfth season of Top Chef introduced the "Sudden Death Quickfire Challenge", where the chef with the least successful dish faces immediate elimination unless they win a cook-off against another competitor.
In the Elimination Challenge, the chefs prepare one or more dishes to meet the challenge requirements, which often includes a specific theme and are usually more complex and require more time to execute than a Quickfire Challenge. Elimination Challenges may be individual challenges or require chefs to work in teams; some may require the contestants to produce several courses.
Teams may be selected by the remaining chefs, but are more often determined by a random process, such as "drawing knives" from a knife block.
The time limit for an Elimination Challenge may range from a few hours to a few days, which typically includes preparation and planning time.
