    As someone who has been sexually harassed, this topic is a serious one and merits openness.

    We filmed Top Chef in October of last year & were not aware of the allegations now coming out about Gabe.

    This should be investigated & the network should consider its best action.

    To be clear, no one has alleged sexual harassment on the record or otherwise to Bravo/Top Chef and we judges didn’t have any indication of inappropriate behavior from Gabe during his time on set.

    Gabe Erales cheated on his wife with a subordinate at the restaurant where he was head chef and then he cut that woman’s hours, and still portrayed him as the good family man last night. #TopChef

    EXCLUSIVE: @BravoTopChef named Austin’s Gabe Erales the winner of its 18th season last night.

    Before airing the show, however, the “Top Chef” production team learned Erales had been fired for harassment from Austin restaurant Comedor 1/ https://atxne.ws/2UVXwc1

    Congrats to Gabe. An obvious winner. But so was Shota, really. I had high hopes for Dawn but we all knew she was done after the first course. The woman with timing issues goes with 75 components for her first dish.

    As for these allegations, they came out the day after he won? Of course they did. Sometimes these things are so calculated you don’t know who to believe….or if you should believe anybody. Or care.

    He’s a Top Chef winner, it’s not like this is gonna get jucier or we were gonna follow Gabe’s carreer forever and keep hearing about this. So, whatever.

    Great season and great finale.

    The allegations have been bubbling under the surface for months on Twitter, but the season was filmed last October, so there was nothing anyone with Bravo could do until now without undermining everything. It’s sad that this great season will be forever tainted by these events.
