Life After Top Chef Stars: Then and Now

Top Chef will launch yet another spin-off on Wednesday, but this one will not feature any masters or just desserts. In fact, it's not a competition series at all. Life After Top Chef (10/9c, Bravo) will instead do exactly as the title says: offer a behind-the-scenes look at former cheftestants as they run or open restaurants, expand their brands and live their lives.

Vote: Which fall premieres won you over? Which flopped?

The cast includes two-time cheftestants Spike Mendelsohn, Fabio Viviani, Richard Blais and Jennifer Carroll, each of whom are in varying stages of their careers since viewers last saw them on All-Stars nearly two years ago. So what have they been up to? And what can you expect this season? Keep reading to find out.

Sarah Grueneberg came up short to Paul on the Top Chef finale, but if you ask her, she did win. "I feel like I won too," she tells TVGuide.com. "I truly believe that.

Top Chef's Lindsay: I didn't take enough risks

Congratulations! The judges kept reiterating that it was really close. Did it feel that way to you?
Paul:
Thanks! Yeah. I didn't have any idea. I wanted to win, but it could've gone either way. You never know what's going to make or break it and sometimes you still don't.

Your dad was adorable crying on the side after you won.

Top Chef's Lindsay: I Didn't Take Enough Risks

When does frozen mousse trump perfectly cooked halibut? When you're on Top Chef! Despite her nearly inedible, ice-hard confection, Sarah — with some major backing from Tom Colicchio — made it to the finale with Paul over her pal Lindsay Autry, whose error-free, albeit less creative, dish sent her packing.

"I know I didn't make any mistakes, but I guess they wanted to see more." Was she surprised that her well-made dish lost to such shoddy execution? Find out below.
