What happens to "Top Chef" contestants?

Howie Kleinberg of Bulldog Barbecuer in North Miami was a contestant on Season 3 of "Top Chef."

Do the names Micah Edelstein, Howie Kleinberg, Jeff McInnis and Andrea Curto-Randazzo ring a bell?

If so, you’re probably a fan of Bravo’s “Top Chef.” All four South Florida chefs have been contestants.

 “Top Chef Masters” returns for a fifth season at 10 p.m. tonight. The tenth season of “Top Chef” debuts in November.

In the meantime, the folks at Thrillist have put together a where-are-they-now gallery of every contestant on the original “Top Chef” series.

It’s an interesting look at where they ended up.

By the way, chef Richard Sandoval, of Toro Toro —  the Pan-Latin steakhouse at the InterContinental Miami — is a contestant on tonight’s “Top Chef Masters.” The restaurant will host a viewing party tonight at ten. Anyone who attends gets one free cocktail.
