"Born and raised in Mexico, Barella once was on a different career path — to become an attorney. However, he left law school to enroll in a culinary program. His career change paid off: In 2022, he was named a James Beard semifinalist for the Emerging Chef category."

About Top Chef ™

Top Chef ™ is an American reality competition television series which has run since March 2006. The show features professional chefs competing against each other in culinary challenges.


The Top Chef ™ chef-contestants are judged by a counsel of exemplary, world-renowned professional chefs and famous names from the food and wine industry.

The contestants are superb, professional chefs with a huge array of global food skills.


The show is progressive, eliminating one or two chefs each week. Each episode follows a consistent theme with (usually) a Quickfire challenge (short and fun) followed by a more difficult "Elimination Challenge" that is much more intense. The Top Chef ™ Judges Table is where the winners and losers are determined each week.
