One-on-One with the Heat 1 Winner of Cutthroat Kitchen: Superstar Sabotage
From grandmas and firefighters to even the roster of judges he keeps on hand, Alton Brown isn't shy about doling out diabolical sabotages to anyone and everyone who enters the hallowed Cutthroat Kitchen arena, including the A-list chefs on Superstar Sabotage. In this brand-new series, 16 all-star professionals, all renowned in their field, have agreed to subject themselves to Alton's eviliciousness. While most will ultimately fall in their quest for Cutthroat glory, a few will shine — one in each of the four preliminary rounds and one of them again in the tournament finale. Check back to FN Dish after each episode to hear from the latest round's winner in an exclusive interview. If you haven't watched tonight's new episode, read no further, because we're about to break down the ins and out of the battle.
While no Cutthroat Kitchen contestant has an easy journey in competition, some are dealt challenges that are particularly diabolical, and Chef Richard Blais was one of the (un)lucky ones tonight. In the first round, he not only found himself wearing a full suit of armor, but he also had to forfeit his basket for the lowly ingredients available on a tea table. The eviliciousness continued in the second round, when he was forced to cook a tofu dish with, and on, nothing but a set of knives before advancing to Round 3, in which he donned an angel's halo, atop which he prepped an angel food cake. Surely some competitors might have crumbled beneath the weight of these demands, but Richard rose to the occasion, ultimately outcooking his Round 3 rival, Chef Cat Cora, and scoring a place in the tournament finale.
