Padma Lakshmi Is Leaving 'Top Chef' After Season 20

After seventeen years of hosting one of the toughest competition reality shows out there, Padma Lakshmi is leaving Top Chef.

According to reports, the host's appearance during the upcoming twentieth season finale of the series will mark the end of the road for her.

Lakshmi herself pointed out that it was time for her to move on and, after hosting the same competition for so long, finding other projects that could suit her is at the top of her mind.

It appears to be an amicable split, given the immense amount of history between Top Chef and its host, wrapping the situation in a friendly manner.

At the start of each season, twelve to nineteen competitors enter the bout, where they'll have to use the best of their skills to prevent elimination.

Some express challenges can grant immunity to a chef, or result in an immediate elimination, in a strategy to spice things up for audiences.

The chefs also have limited access to outside information, almost isolating them from the world while they compete.
