Giving Thanks for Turkey Suits — Alton's After-Show
There are some Cutthroat Kitchen sabotages that test a chef's ability to think on his or her feet, make inferior ingredients shine on the plate and work with a rival under tense circumstances. Then there are sabotages that serve little purpose beyond time-wasting — but oftentimes it's these seemingly over-the-top challenges that fans appreciate most. On tonight's all-new Thanksgiving-themed episode of Cutthroat Kitchen, host Alton Brown introduced the latest sabotage that's sure to be counted among the most memorable with fans: The Turkey Suit.
Like the now-infamous souffle suit from Season 3, this heavily stuffed turkeylike contraption transformed one contestant into an oversize version of himself and forced the competitor to learn to perform basic movements with superfluous padding. "I couldn't have anybody ride on a Thanksgiving turkey float, so we made this Thanksgiving turkey float costume," Alton explained to judge Simon Majumdar on the host's After-Show. Lucky for Simon, Alton spared him the experience of donning the getup, as Alton noted, "Poor Chef Jake sweat approximately 6 liters of sweat into that."
