Vote for our Top Chef Duels Competitor and Help Seafood Watch!

Chef Richard Blais – a Seafood Watch Celebrity Chef Ambassador and Cooking for Solutions participant – is competing on Top Chef Duels on the Bravo channel. As on American Idol, you can vote to support him – and help the Aquarium win $5,000 for our Seafood Watch program!

Here’s how it works:

Each week Top Chef Duels will feature two chefs competing head to head. During the on-air broadcast, fans are asked to vote for the chef who most deserves to win. You’ll be prompted to go to Bravotv.com/vote or to text in your vote using the chef’s name. The chef with the most votes each week will earn a $5,000 donation for their chosen charity.

Chef Richard Blais competes tonight (August 6) at 10 p.m. ET. Voting for Chef Richard will remain open until Wednesday August 13 at 4 p.m. ET. Votes submitted after that will not be counted.

You can watch him challenge competitor Marcel Vigneron to a burger throwdown – and learn why he’s directing his charity contribution to support the Aquarium.

How you can vote:

Vote for Chef Richard at bravotv.com/vote – or by texting “RICHARD” to 27286 (BRAVO). Vote early/vote often! If he’s the top vote-getter, the Aquarium earns $5,000 to support our work promoting ocean-friendly seafood, and healthy and productive oceans.
