Cutthroat After-Show 202 05:47

Alton Brown and Simon Majumdar discuss the sabotages the competitors faced as they prepared chicken parm and strawberry shortcake.

From competition and available prize money to chefs' hopes and judges' expectations, Cutthroat Kitchen isn't short on anything, least of all sabotage. But tonight the contest took a turn for the pintsize in Round 3, when Chef Midgley found himself cooking strawberry shortcake in a tiny kids' kitchen, equipped with a miniscule sink, toaster oven and induction range, as well as petite utensils.

"If you can only imagine in your mind's eye big ol' mitts on that guy using these little-bitty tools," Alton said to Simon after he revealed the play-size setup to the judge on his After-Show. "I probably would have cried and run off into the corner," Simon joked of how he may have approached this challenge, as he and Alton crouched down next to it. It turns out, however, that Chef Midgley found success with this sabotage, as he completed the round on time and presented Simon with a dish superior to his rival's balsamic-soaked plate.
