Bravo’s Top Chef Mastersdebuted last night—it’s like a supercharged version of Top Chef, and the contestants are world-renowned cooks instead of up-and-comers. Even the judges are impressive (two words: Gael Greene). If you didn’t catch the premiere, then watch the rerun before next week’s episode, which airs Wednesday at 10pm. Ten reasons to check it out:

1. They let Junior Girl Scouts judge the first challenge.

2. Sorry Padma, but the host Kelly Choi probably doesn’t say things like “It’s pedeeeestrian at beeeest.”

3. Hubert Keller trained the White House staff on healthy cooking. That’s so cool! Plus he’s a DJ, and he has an awesome French accent, and he chilled pasta in the shower.

4. You can play this fun product-placement drinking game I invented: Every time you see the Glad logo, you take a shot out of a Glad bag. You’ll be wasted by 10:30.

5. The chefs are competing for a $100,000 donation to their favorite charity. My man Hubert chose the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

6. It’s an excuse to say amuse bouche.

7. Gael Greene is going to wear some pretty extraordinary outfits this seasonsee above image for a small taste of what’s in store.

8. Betters and gamblers will love the face-off format and star-rating system.

9. Zooey Deschanel and Doogie Howser, I mean Neil Patrick Harris, will be guest judges this season. 

10. None of the chefs knows how to use a MICROWAVE. How quaint!
