Graham_Elliot-redshirt-sm.jpgWhat happens when you put two top chefs in the same room? Well, in this case, nothing yet, but one has some pretty nice things to say about the other. Graham Elliot, who returns for the second season of MasterChef tonight on Fox and just celebrated the third anniversary of his namesake restaurant, had some complimentary words for Grant Achatz. In addition to saying they both walk to the beat of their own drum and have "tremendous respect for each other," the outspoken chef said, when asked by Metromix who would win if the two ever faced off in a cooking challenge that "Grant's always the upper hand in everything. I'm just an airline pilot and Grant's an astronaut." Ready for liftoff. [Metromix]
