Cutthroat After-Show: Eggnog 04:50

Alton reveals the holiday-themed sabotages to judge Jet Tila.

In a ball pit, strapped to a life-size rotisserie, high atop a high chair, on top of a mechanical bull — the Cutthroat Kitchen After-Show has seen the judges in some downright diabolical (and downright hilarious) locales. But on tonight's all-new installment, the scene turned a bit more seasonal when host Alton Brown and judge Jet Tila found themselves atop Santa's lap following the Holi-Dazed and Confused holiday special.

"Alton, I've never felt this uncomfortable," Jet — clad as what else but a holiday elf, of course — told Alton as the duo landed atop Santa's lap. "Oh, we're just getting started," Alton joked. Not only did the guys have to work while seated, but they each had an additional sabotage to simultaneously contend with. Since Alton won the coin toss, he chose the spinning-dreidel challenge for himself — which meant that he had to keep a dreidel spinning during the whole time he was cooking — while Jet was forced to send all of his ingredients down an ice luge before working with them. "You're, like, weighing [ingredients]?" Jet asked Alton as the host used a kitchen scale to precisely measure the components. "I won't even be able to get sugar down the luge." Sure enough, though, Jet as well as Alton did manage to create presentable eggnog, and even Santa was able to partake in the holiday cheer with a cup for himself.
