Top Chef Just Announced Its New Cheftestants — And It Turns Out One Is in *Another* Hot Contest at the Same Time

Which one will be named Bravo's Top Chef for Season 16? (And which one stands to win in a whole other contest?)

Bravo's Top Chef is heading to Kentucky for Season 16 — premiering Thursday, December 6 at 9/8c — and we just got our first look at the competition. (Check out the clip above for all the preview action.)

And while these folks each hope to be named Top Chef, one of them is currently in the running in another hot contest, too...

(Also among them is Season 11 competitor Louis Maldonado.)

Good luck to all the chefs... as they shoot for various illustrious titles!
