'Top Chef' canoodling: Realistically, no network is going to cry "cut" when two reality show contestants start an illicit romance, but we wish Bravo had. Maybe we're old-fashioned, but we watch these cooking contests for two reasons: mind-scrambling displays of skill and maybe a culinary train wreck or two. If we wanted "The Real World" with seared scallops, we'd find it.
