I will be checking it out for sure. I loved the first couple years but they lost me with the group of people after that. I would like to see how a few of the people from this group do.

I never got into this show but I must admit I have watched a few episodes of Keeping up with the Kardashians. The chef could be fun to see too - I saw him on Top Chef a few times I think !
