Do you have the chops to survive a Quickfire Elimination while Rocco pensively chews your food? Think you could survive a wilting laser-sneer from the new Ol' Blue Eyes? Can you brunoise with aplomb and ease?
Why not try out for Top Chef Season 6? AZ got the word on the tryout dates, and even though there's not one locally, plane tickets are cheap compared to the price of anonymity. Personally, I would like to see Steven Brown try out (for food skills) or Scott Pampuch (he's got the look and the skills) or Noah Barton (he's wicked funny and has unappreciated skills).

Bravo's "Top Chef" offers a fascinating window into the competitive,pressure-filled environment of world-class cookery and the restaurant business at the highest level. The series - hosted by Padma Lakshmi and presided by head judge Chef Tom Colicchio - features aspiring chefs who compete for their shot at culinary stardom and the chance to earn the prestigious title of "Top Chef." Each episode holds two challenges for the chefs. The first is a quick-fire test of their basic abilities and the second is a more involved elimination challenge designed to test the versatility and inventiveness of the chefs as they take on unique culinary trials such as working with unusual and exotic foods or catering for a range of demanding clients. The challenges not only test their skills in the kitchen, but also uncover if they have the customer service, management and teamwork abilities required of a Top Chef. The competing chefs live and breathe the high-pressure lifestyle that comes with being a master chef, and each week someone is asked to "pack up their knives" and go home.
