With close similarities to the unsuspecting soap opera actors who, at any time or anywhere, just might get confronted for being the evil cad that everyone loves to hate, it has been reported that Marcel Vigneron of Las Vegas, voted by some as this season’s Top Chef competition’s Most Irritating, was recently attacked while out partying with friends, and needed to be rushed to the hospital for stitches.

As reported in today’s NY Post, Vigneron, who is now in the final stretch for the coveted title of this year’s Top Chef on the Bravo network, ended up with a sizeable scar over his left eye. According to Vigneron, a girl came up to him in a nightclub and asked if he was Marcel from the top-rated reality show. But before he could answer, a bottle struck him, and friends had to rush him to the hospital for a total of 30 stitches to close the wound. Not that Vigneron is any stranger to being manhandled by his own fellow Top Chef contenders. Clearly, last week’s episode when he was thrown to the ground, and nearly had all his hair shaved off by his opponents is a perfect example of how hot it sometimes gets for Vigneron.

In any event, read more about what Vigneron told the Las Vegas Weekly regarding this unfortunate incident here.
