A new season of Top Chef Masters 2013 is only weeks away, as Bravo announced the Top Chef Masters Season 5 premiere date and new cast and we have that information in our Top Chef Masters 2013 spoilers below! Celebrity Chef Curtis Stone returns as host and 13 new chefs will compete for the title of Top Chef Master and win $100,000 for his or her charity!

The competition begins on July 24 at 10/9c on Bravo and Gail Simmons will serve as the new head critic for Top Chef Masters 2013. Lesley Suter, a food and dining editor, will be a new judge, but James Oseland, Ruth Reichl and Francis Lam will all return as judges.

To make it fresh, Top Chef Masters Season 5 will introduce a new twist: each “Masters” chef will be competing with their very own sous chef. Those sous chefs will be competing against each other online in a competition online called Battle of the Sous Chefs, which will be hosted by Top Chef judge Hugh Acheson. The winning sous chef will win immunity for their “Masters” chef that week! However, if their sous chef makes a bad dish or just sucks it up in one of the challenges than their “Masters” chef will have to overcome some kind of obstacle during their next challenge. I am liking this idea!

Here are the 13 new chefs competing on Top Chef Masters 2013 and their sous chefs:

  • Franklin Becker (Sous chef – Vinson Petrillo)
  • David Burke (Sous chef – Chris Shea)
  • Lynn Crawford (Sous chef – Lora Kirk)
  • Odette Fada (Sous chef – Benedetto Bartolotta)
  • Neal Fraser (Sous chef – Jason Bowlin)
  • Jennifer Jasinski (Sous chef – Jorel Pierce)
  • Douglas Keane (Sous chef – Drew Gassell)
  • Jenn Louis (Sous chef – Cory Chunn)
  • Richard Sandoval (Sous chef – Greg Howe)
  • Bryan Voltaggio (Sous chef – Graeme Ritchie)
  • Herbert Wilson (Sous chef – Robert Silva)
  • Sang Yoon (Sous chef – Ted Hopson)
  • Sue Zemanick (Sous chef – Nick Lama)

Top Chef Masters Season 5 premieres on July 24 at 10/9c on Bravo.
