Kristen Kish, "Top Chef" season 10 winner and co-host of the new truTV series "Fast Foodies," joined EDGE host Matthew Wexler for a Facebook Live interview to chat about her latest TV endeavor, battling it out in the kitchen with co-hosts Jeremy Ford and Justin Sutherland, and the one food that she'd be happy never to eat again.

Kish has been a constant and welcomed LGBTQ presence in the culinary entertainment world since winning "Top Chef" in 2012. Since then, the out chef has written a cookbook ("Kristen Kish Cooking"), appeared on the Travel Channel's "36 Hours," and has partnered as executive chef at Arlo Grey, inside the retro-chic LINE Austin Hotel.

"Fast Foodies" reimagines some of our favorite grab-and-go guilty pleasures in a two-round battle with weekly guest judges, including James Van Der Beek (Kish's crush), Amanda Seales and the always hilarious Fortune Feimster, among others.
