Cutthroat After-Show: Ramen 04:46

Alton reveals the sabotages with the tournament finalists.

It was a finale of evilicious proportions last night when the top-four chefs took their places in the Cutthroat Kitchen: Superstar Sabotage arena for the fifth and final face-off. Fabio Viviani ultimately claimed the win after several downright diabolical sabotages, but it was Richard Blais who landed what was perhaps the most "hands-off" challenge of the battle. In the Round 3 dessert test, a Bob lent Richard a hand — or rather, both of his hands — which acted as Richard's own while the Bob finished the round behind him. And in keeping with After-Show tradition, of course, it was only a matter of time before Alton Brown and Simon Majumdar, the judge of the day, tried their hands at this sinister setup.

Simon opted to prepare a cranachan, a layered trifle-like dessert spiked with whiskey, though of course it was Alton who'd be doing the actual prepping with verbal cues from Simon. While the situation started out efficiently enough, with Alton following Simon's commands and executing each step gently, it indeed didn't end that way, as Alton could hardly see his moves before him. "Not even close!" Simon said as Alton struggled to pour a glug of brandy into the glass. What resulted was a finished dessert, but also a messy prep station, a messy Alton and a messy Simon.
