Top Chef 2020 : M6 takes a radical decision for the rest of the culinary competition

This Wednesday, April 1, M6 will broadcast the seventh week of Top Chef. But this will be the last before a change of size. In full containment, and to continue to disseminate the culinary competition, the chain had taken a radical decision : to shorten its episodes.

It is left for the seventh week of competition. Since 19 February, M6 diffuse the eleventh season of Top Chef. Except that it is about to take an unexpected turn. After the elimination of Justine, and the rebalancing of the brigades, they are more than eight candidates still in the running. Eight and hope to be able to win the prestigious culinary competition. This Wednesday, April 1, the episode may be in line with the expectations of fans of Top Chef, because they will see the cooks face Philippe Etchebest in the course of the dreaded ordeal That can beat Philippe Etchebest. It promises to. Except that this is the last time that viewers will be able to follow a number of “normal” this eleventh edition of Top Chef. The following week, Wednesday 8 April, the culinary competition will evolve.

Because of the confinement, all the emissions are impacted. Whether the flow programs (entertainment like The Voice, game shows or talk shows) or fiction. The channels and the presenters are redoubling their imagination to try to better adapt and continue to offer to the confined programs ” fresh “. Top Chef is no exception. “We try to go at the end of Top Chef, which is currently in distribution. The last few episodes, this is still not totally safe, “acknowledged Nicolas de Tavernost on the airwaves of RTL Then to hold it for as long as possible, M6 has decided to shorten the episodes. “From 8 to 22 April next, the candidates are going to hang up the apron for an hour earlier than the previous weeks. In fact, the episodes will stop in the vicinity of 22h35 “, report our colleagues from PureMédias on Tuesday 31 march.

What about the finale of Top Chef ?

“Given the mounting problems related to the sanitary conditions existing, it is the only solution to keep the program to the antenna until the final,” explains the chain to our colleagues, who has so visibly taken example on new versions of The Voice and Koh-Lanta. However, M6 is hoped that this will be short-lived. “We are working on the editing in order to be able to offer longer episodes in the coming weeks and return to normal” as early as 29 April, provides details of the chain. It remains then an open question : when the final will be released ? The moment the winner’s name is revealed is usually filmed a few days before the broadcast of the final in order to limit the risk to leak information. With containment, the filming is not so, for the moment not yet considered.
