Top Cheffage

Top Chef Season 10 set in Seattle premieres November 7, and Seattle Met says that the city paid over $300,000 for the privilege of hosting one of cable's most watched reality shows. James Keblas, director of the city of Seattle Mayor's Office of Film and Music, argues that the sum (and facilitating corporate sponsorships) was worth it, since tourism may increase and the direct dollars spent during the eight-week shoot this past summer.
