Bravo has posted a video sneak peek of Top Chef Seattle, scheduled to premiere on Nov. 7 at 10 p.m.
The video preview shows the chefs with the Rat City Roller girls roller derby team and mucking around on the tide flats - perhaps digging geoducks?
Also appearing this season are Chris Pratt and Anna Faris - actors with Northwest backgrounds - as well as chefs Emeril Legasse, Curtis Stone and Seattle's Tom Douglas.
The 21 cheftestants are from across the country, but none is from the Seattle area.
Gossip and speculation about a Seattle Top Chef season began months ago. Judge Tom Colicchio and host Padma Lakshmi were spotted around the city.
The chefs was seen at Pike Place Market, various Whole Foods stores and top restaurants, such as Canlis.
