Sometimes on The Next Iron Chef, rivals manage to execute their dishes as flawlessly as they intend to and leave the judges simply speechless on account of the beauty, sophistication and downright deliciousness of their offerings. Other times, however, chefs’ plans are foiled and for one reason or another, they present the panel with plates that leave them astounded — and not in a good way.

The above image is a sneak-peek shot from Sunday’s brand-new episode, and let’s just say that Simon Majumdar wouldn’t be making that face if the dish he was judging was everything it was supposed to be. It’s revealed in this exclusive video preview that something goes wrong — very wrong — when the remaining seven chefs attempt to give everyday canned foods a second life outside of the can. What do you think had to have happened for a Redemption rival to serve the judges so distressing a bite? Who do you think is responsible for leaving Simon in a whole-body wince?

Before you tune in this Sunday at 9pm/8c to watch the drama unfold, we’re challenging you, Next Iron Chef fans, to write your best captions (tastefully appropriate, please) for this cringe-worthy moment in the comments below.
