Round 2, Take 2 — Alton's After-Show

Cutthroat After-Show 208 05:54

Alton Brown and Jet Tila discuss the sabotages the competitors faced as they prepared huevos rancheros and crepes.

Surviving a round of Cutthroat Kitchen is no small feat, and for most chefs, each of the 30 minutes on the clock is precious. On this week's all-new episode, however, one competitor learned what it's like to attempt a round in half that time — in only 15 quick minutes.

In what judge Jet Tila deemed "the worst sabotage I think I've heard of," Alton announced halfway through Round 2's huevos rancheros challenge that the mid-round sabotage was to begin the entire challenge over again, from scratch. Chef David was gifted this task, and he was ultimately forced to not just start over in cooking, but to also grocery shop and prep his ingredients for a second time. "It totally makes sense why his dish didn't come together," Jet noted to Alton during the host's After-Show. "You can't hit the reset button," Alton added.

While Chef David was no match for this sabotage and faced elimination because of it, Jet said to Alton, "I think Alton Brown or Jet Tila could have pulled that one off in 15 minutes." His thoughts on how to succeed? "Build it on the skillet," he said, explaining that nearly every element could have been made in fry pans.
