Ready for a second helping of some of Top Chef's favorite personalities?

For season 8 of its popular cooking competition, Bravo is bringing back 18 contestants from prior seasons – a mix of fan favorites and a few villains – for what the network has dubbed Top Chef: All Stars.

The contestants are: Tiffani Faison and Stephen Asprinio from season 1; Elia Aboumrad and Marcel Vigneron from season 2; Casey Thompson, Tre Wilcox and Dale Levitsky from season 3; Richard Blais, Antonia Lofaso, Dale Talde and Spike Mendelsohn from season 4; Carla Hall, Fabio Viviani and Jamie Lauren from season 5; Michael Isabella and Jennifer Carroll from season 6; and Angelo Sosa and Tiffany Derry from season 7.

Based in seven different cities over the past seven seasons, the series is also making its first homecoming in terms of geography – returning to New York, which hosted season 5.

The new season begins Dec. 1.
