Englishman Simon Majumdar is likely acquainted with bangers and mash, the Round 2 dish on tonight's new episode of Cutthroat Kitchen. But he wasn't familiar with the concept of a Round 1 sabotage — double dutch jump rope — that put a punny twist on Dutch baby pancakes, as host Alton Brown revealed on the After-Show. Alton explained that the goal of the game was for two people to jump rope in tandem, and Simon couldn't help but wonder, "Are you making this up?" The host assured him that such a game was indeed "a major pastime," and Alton and Simon went on to don the joint double dutch table sabotage, on which they had to whisk egg whites while simultaneously jumping.

Despite his first few missed attempts to successfully jump the rope, Simon admitted, "I’m getting there." Both he and Alton were forced to whisk vigorously as they were whipping their egg whites by hand, and Alton explained one minor impediment to a quicker process: "I didn't add any cream of tartar to this," Alton said. "Cream of tartar, of course, helps you when you're beating eggs like this because the acid breaks down some of the bonds so that you can form brand-new ones." As both Simon and Alton held on to their tools and jumped with each call of "double Dutch baby" from the Bobs, Simon said simply, "I'm exhausted."
