The Price of Top Chef

TOPCHEFMONIES.jpgBreaking news today confirms that The San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau paid Top Chef producers Magical Elves $200,000 to film there. Dallas and Austin CVBs deny making any payments, and Houston says they were asked to pay $120,000 for one episode. This is on top of the $400,000 the State of Texas paid. If you have enough money, maybe they'd film in your backyard. [Eater National]
