Former fashion model Kelly Choi is hosting the newest cooking show in the Top Chef franchise: Top Chef Masters. This time it’s world-reknown chefs pitted against each other for cash – of course for charities. So who is Kelly Choi, the new hostess for Top Chef Masters? She’s a Korean-American from Virginia who found success in New York City. If you’re a New Yorker, you’ve probably seen Kelly Choi on local TV on her show Eat Out NY, where she reveals great restaurants. She’s also the host of the nationally syndicated show Secrets of New York.
Kelly happens to be a former Ford model and won Elite Modeling’s “Look of the Year” competition. A couple years ago, she was voted as “One of the Sexiest New Yorkers.” But she’s not just a face and body. Kelly is a graduate of William and Mary College and has a masters from Columbia University. And tonight, she earns more foodie stripes as she begins hosting Top Chef Masters on BravoTV.
