'Top Chef Masters': Christina Hendricks to join for a 'Mad Men'-themed episode -- EXCLUSIVE

Geoffrey-Arend-Christina-HendricksImage Credit: Stefanie Keenan/Getty ImagesJoan Holloway is about to get yet another close-up, but this time it’s on… Bravo? EW has learned exclusively that sultry Mad Men star Christina Hendricks and her actor husband Geoffrey Arend — who will be starring alongside Dana Delaney in ABC’s medical drama Body of Proof when it premieres March 29 — recently taped the second episode of Top Chef Masters‘ upcoming third season. (The couple are pictured together at left.) 

The challenge Hendricks and Arend are involved with will be appropriately ’60s themed, harkening to Hendrick’s role on AMC’s period drama. Dishes from the ’60s will no doubt provide lots of ways for the reality competition series’ producers to have fun with the yet-to-be-announced celebrity chef contestants — the names of dishes from that era alone are a blast. (“We’ve got oysters Rockefeller, beef Wellington, [a] Napoleon,” Roger Sterling (John Slattery) once said on an episode of Mad Men, trying to persuade a lady-friend to stay for a meal. “If we leave this lunch alone, it’ll take over Europe.”)

For this third season of Masters, Bravo has announced that former host Kelly Choi will be replaced with Australian celebrity chef and Celebrity Apprentice contestant Curtis Stone. The network has yet to announce the show’s premiere date or celebrity contestants.

  • UGH

    I’d love to have her served to me on a plate….
    Did I just type that out loud>

  • James

    I clicked on this link solely because I knew you’d include a pic of Hendricks. Don’t give a crap about Top Chef.

    Ha! As a women that lives with the mixed blessings of being top heavy, it makes me feel better that even with the best stylists, and the best available wardrobe Ms. Hendricks still suffers from ‘quad boob,’ yeay I’m not the only one! Sorry I know it sounds petty, but for other fellow boob wrestlers, they know my frustration.

    • Jessica

      I had the same reaction – you are definitely not alone in the struggles to wrangle ‘em in! Maybe she could be the spokesperson for our plight.

      My flatter chested friends have no idea when I say something about boob 3 & 4 lol. Nice to know I’m not the only one that has troubles with them sometimes.

    • AltDave

      I truly sympathize with your struggles, ladies. That is why I have always been more than willing to give well-endowed women a helping hand whenever possible!

    • Jimmy

      She is going for that looks. Hendricks loves to flaunt her over-sized wares (see last year’s Emmy pics for evidence).

  • WTH

    She is fierce … I LOVE her.

  • Jack

    Whoa whoa whoa…Hendricks is married to Snozberries?

    • harry

      ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!

    • Ally

      That’s EXACTLY what I was just thinking! I had to look him up to make sure that was him. He is not attractive at ALL how did he pull that one off!?

    • Slimer

      JGL can’t get Zooey D., but his drunk best friend can get Christina Hendricks. Oh, what a world.

  • Mr. Holloway

    Ugh…I hate that guy!

    • Karate Pants

      Please do see that this pic is highly photoshoppable…you can set things right. ;)

      • Mr. Holloway

        And I INSTANTLY feel 1,000% better. Many thanks!

  • JStorm

    If Firefly does get revived by the “Help Nathan Buy Firefly” Facebook campaign, I hope Hendricks returns as Saffron. She was great in the role.

  • Eve

    I think that Top Chef have definitely jump the shark. Really? Christina Hendricks? Does she have any culinary background? I would like to see more serious judges with culinary backgrounds.

  • lolarites

    Her duck waddle and baby doll voice don’t do a thing for me. As for her MM character, she’s going to be living a lie, just like everyone else on the show.

  • Temp

    wow…that dress deserves a medal for its valiant, though futile, efforts to contain those gorgeous monsters

  • Karate Pants

    Aaaand my head just exploded. My two favorite shows, how fun!

  • RLM

    Very cool and I can’t wait for this one.
    Still into the Top Chef All-Stars – (hootie hoo)

  • Rod

    she could cook anything in that dress and I’d eat it..

  • sassyfras

    I am a straight married woman, but given the right circumstances and a decent amount of tequila, I’d totally hop the fence for her.
