An Evil Contest Just Got Scarier — Alton's After-Show

Related To:

For a competition as entrenched in evil as Cutthroat Kitchen, the contest would have to turn especially ghostly to spook the chefs in the midst of battle, and that's just what happened on tonight's first-ever Halloween-themed episode. With the help of costumes, devilish-sounding dishes and terrifying tests, host-turned-vampire Alton Brown pulled off a fright-night battle like no other, and he filled in judge Jet Tila, who was appropriately dressed in judicial garb, on all of his scary secrets during his exclusive After-Show.

"It was a very spooky day here in Cutthroat Kitchen," Alton revealed before a crew member rolled in the first sabotage: a coffin, which served as a makeshift prep station for one unfortunate competitor. Jet mused as to whom he would have sabotaged with this test during the first-round deviled egg dish: "The tallest person — for sure." And sure enough, that's what Chef Emme had in mind when she picked Chef Caulden for the challenge. Despite the creepy conditions, however, Chef Caulden managed to earn Jet's praises, as the judge said: "Wait, so he composed his entire dish in there. The foam, the green, the everything. He did quite a good job."
