So, you may know that Top Chef Texas didn't include a stop in Houston. You may also know the state of Texas *paid* a television show $400,000 to film here the same year it laid off a shit ton of teachers.

But what you may not have seen are the commercials that the clever Greater Houston Convention & Visitors Bureau plans to run during eight episodes of Top Chef Texas in various markets. Appearances by Monica Pope, Jim Parsons, Billy Gibbons, George Foreman and Lyle Lovett.
