"I'm the Best That Ever Played This Game" — Alton's After-Show
Cutthroat After-Show: Breakfast 04:58
No stranger to the role of judge or competitor on Cutthroat Kitchen, Richard Blais is a bit of an evilicious die-hard ( he did win Round 1 of the latest Superstar Sabotage tournament, after all). And on tonight's new episode, he proved his dedication in the most-permanent (or at least a permanent-looking) way: a Cutthroat Kitchen tattoo. The name of the game this week was breakfast, and for this special episode both host Alton Brown and Richard, who was the guest judge of the day, donned themed bathrobes as they doled out and critiqued contestants' morning meals. And when Richard pulled back his own fuzzy robe, he revealed a shockingly realistic tattoo of the show's logo on the left side of his chest.
On today's After-Show, Richard further proved his love of the contest, seriously committing himself to a duo of sabotages while prepping a classic morning omelet. After having a giant cereal bowl — overflowing with fruity rounds of cereal, of course — strapped to his head, Richard got to work cracking eggs, splashing in some milk and grating cheese, but even these seemingly easy tasks proved tricky for him, thanks to the unwieldly bowl he was balancing. Ultimately he spilled colorful cereal pieces onto his prep table and right in his omelet mixture, but it was no bother to him: "I'm about to make a fruity cereal omelet, everyone. This is going to be a world premiere," Richard proclaimed, downright excited about the prospect of that dish about to unfold.
He managed to walk the balance beams to the stove without incident, and once the pan hit the flames, he spread sage wisdom about cooking such an omelet. "Alton, here's a key when you're making a fruity-cereal omelet," the judge said. "You got to disperse the fruity cereal." After a quick helping hand from the host, Richard was able to complete his elegantly folded omelet, much to his own amusement. "I'm so proud of myself right now," he said with a smile. "I'm one of the best that ever played this game. One of the best."
