Emeril LagasseEmeril Lagasse, a man known to enjoy kicking it up a notch or two, has joined Bravo's 'Top Chef' as a new judge. Lagasse and fellow new addition Hugh Acheson will join Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons as 'Top Chef' takes on Texas.

'Top Chef: Texas' breaks the formula and takes on three Texan cities -- Austin, San Antonio and Dallas -- as opposed to one.

This isn't the first time Emeril has teamed with 'Top Chef.' The famous chef appeared in the Season 5 finale as a guest judge.

Promising "many surprising twists and turns and never-before-seen challenges and events," Bravo has yet to reveal the premiere date for 'Top Chef: Texas' other than the supremely vague "fall."

One of the surprises? Well, Pee-Wee Herman was spotted around San Antonio with judges earlier this summer.

'Top Chef' is going up against 'American Idol,' 'The Amazing Race,' 'So You Think You Can Dance,' 'Project Runway' and 'Dancing With the Stars' for an Emmy in the Outstanding Reality Competition Program category.
