Cutthroat After-Show 313 06:16

Alton Brown and Jet Tila discuss the sabotages the competitors faced as they prepared chicken pot pie, panini and cheesecake.

On Cutthroat Kitchen, the sabotages are created to confuse the contestants and make them think on their feet. This is especially the case with the ingredient swaps, where the chefs have to trade in their gourmet ingredients with sub par foods of host Alton Brown's choosing. This is precisely what happened in the cheesecake round, where Chef Diana made Chef Eric harvest his cheese from a platter of leftover cream cheese bagels, cream cheese Danish, Philly cheese steaks and sour-cream-filled baked potatoes.

"That's messed up," said judge Jet Tila on this week's Alton's After-Show. "I don't know how long that's been sitting here!" Still, he admitted that he had no idea that the cheese had been adulterated in any way, stating, "It came together, it was cheesy, and I didn't get any of the weird savory bits." Chef Eric smartly harvested the cream cheese of the Danish and bagels, and, as Alton said, "He definitely earned every bit of it."
