It takes an interesting type of person to agree to sign on for a reality TV show. Some are kooky, others ambitious, most fame hungry, and a few, well … just plain shady. Last season on Bravo’s “Top Chef: Just Desserts,” it was easy to see that runner-up Morgan Wilson was a total egomaniac, but I never would have guessed he was into hardcore kiddie porn.

So, technically, I should have written a post yesterday about “Top Chef: Just Desserts,” when the show premiered. But Bravo plays its shows on repeat ad infinitum, so you’ll still be able to catch the premiere. One of the few depressing things about “Top Chef“—besides the fact that you can’t reach into the television and pull out the food—is that the chefs generally suck at desserts. And nothing is sadder than seeing a judge take a bite of a beautiful dessert only to have them spit it out in their napkin because it’s so salty. So I’m thrilled to watch a show where pastry chefs duke it out in the kitchen.
