The reality show Life after Top Chef appears on the Bravo network and it follows the lives of four former contests of the cooking show Top Chef. These are Jen Carroll, Spike Mendelsohn, Fabio Viviani, and Richard Blais. Jen Carroll is a spitfire of a chef who went very far on her season of top Chef but made a household name for herself on Top Chef: All Stars where she was eliminated early on but did not make an early exit. She back talked the judges during the elimination process and event was yelling as she exited the show.

After the show ended, she was let go by her boss legendary chef Eric Ripert and she tried to start her own restaurant called Concrete Blonde. The investors pulled out of the deal due to economic issues and now she does not have a steady job.

The show follows her as she spends time with her family, goes on chef consulting jobs, interacts with other of her Top Chef fellow contestants, and tries to make her dreams of owning her own restaurant a reality.

Richard Blais has been very busy since he won Top Chef: All Stars. He is opening yet another restaurant in his home of Atlanta, Georgia. He struggles with being able to open the restaurant while also being a husband and father to two young girls.

The show follows him through the entire process of making his restaurant a reality. It also touches on his relationship with his wife, kids, and friends such as Jen and Fabio.

Spike Mendelsohn lives in Washington, D.C. and is known for being a take charge chef who likes to speak his mind. The show follows him as he works in his burger restaurants with his parents and sister.

Fabio Viviani never has had trouble making his presence known especially with his Italian accent and love for the ladies. On the show, viewers get to see Fabio working at his restaurants, hosting charity functions, teaching cooking classes, and even getting endorsement deals. He is a man who is on a mission and leads a very hectic life.

The show gives audience members the chance to catch up with their favorite former contestants so that they can see how their lives changed after the show. Some have become household names while others are still struggling to make their own mark in the culinary world.
