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 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:
