Cutthroat After-Show 210 05:31

Alton Brown and Simon Majumdar discuss the sabotages the competitors faced as they prepared lettuce wraps, clam chowder and chicken-fried steak.

"Let nobody ever say that I am not a risk taker," Simon proclaimed on Alton's After-Show following this week's brand-new episode of Cutthroat Kitchen . He and Alton were catching up after the latest rounds of sabotage had unfolded, and they reflected on Simon's no-holds-barred maneuver of testing the viscosity of Chef Billy New England clam chowder in Round 2.

During what Alton deemed "one of the finest moments," Simon picked up Chef Billy's bowl of soup and held it upside down directly on top of his head. "Chef, there's thick," Simon told the rival of his soup during tasting, "and there's you-can-hold-it-over-your-head-without-danger-of-it-splashing-on-my-bald-bonce thick." According to Alton, Chef Billy "had some starch manipulation issues," which ultimate turned his chowder into a nearly solid soup. "It was just kind of wobbling there rather threateningly for a while," Simon explained.
