Do you believe the myth of top shortage only applies when you’re ISO a Daddy or Mommy? Do you love yelling at cheftestants on cooking shows for forgetting to salt the seafood paella while you slurp your instant ramen? Boy have I got the ultra-specific intersection of delicious and *delicious* for you! Bravo’s Top Chef, long may she reign, is an absolute hotbed of ferocious lesbian activity, and with all that heat in the kitchen competition it’s obvious that the contestants need a way to unwind. If you’re cruising for a bruising, take this quiz to match up with your perfect spatula spanker. After all, every top chef needs a bottom…I mean, sous chef.

  1. This is the niche content I come to AS for.

    I got Ashley Merriman and I honestly don’t remember her, although I thought I’d watched every season.

    I like her description:

    A quiet badass in the kitchen and an outspoken critic of heterosexuals (anyone remember her disgust at being made to cater a Vegas bridal/stag party because same), Chef Ashley is the silver fox who will sweep you off your feet when you least expect it.

  2. Kristen Kish TYVM, would have also very happily accepted Samin Nosrat, (probably not a top chef, I’ve never seen top chef, I just love chefs) and that tik tok lesbian chef who looks like she knows how to tie all the good knots! I did not mean that in a dirty way but it looks dirty and I’m leaving it there!
