VOTE: Help Cast an Episode of Chopped

by in Shows, November 11th, 2011

Have you always wanted a say in who gets cast on Chopped, to somehow influence the four contestants featured on the show or to watch some of your favorite Chopped competitors battle again? Viewers now have an unprecedented opportunity to cast an episode of Chopped with four returning challengers.

Do these contestants look familiar to you? These chefs have already been featured on Chopped, but during their first challenges, they lost in monumental, disastrous and shocking eliminations. After nine seasons and hundreds of contestants, Chopped judges have seen their share of winners and losers, but this group may simply take the cake.

Check out how the eight Chopped losers were unceremoniously eliminated, then cast your vote for four contestants you want to be featured in an upcoming episode of Chopped.

Luis Gonzalez, Season 1, Episode 5
An epic sugar-salt mix-up caused Luis to be chopped during the final dessert round.

Tiffany Jefferies, Season 9, Episode 9
Tiffany was chopped after round one because her appetizer dish was overly sweet and her general kitchen skills lacked finesse.

Colin Kruzic, Season 6, Episode 2
His platings lacked attention to detail, and the clock got away from him, causing him to be chopped after just the first round.

Monica Langowski, Season 7, Episode 3
She was chopped after the second round, once she forgot to present her hard cider sauce — a key part of her dish — and had trouble reaching the correct cooking temperatures of several ingredients.

Gwenael LePape, Season 1, Episode 12
He was chopped in round one after he failed to plate a single thing, although, after tasting his sauce, Judge Chris Santos said Gwenael had the potential to go all the way.

Marja Samson, Season 5, Episode 10
The self-proclaimed Dumpling Queen cross-contaminated cooking and preparation surfaces, leading her to be chopped during the second round.

John Sierp, Season 3, Episode 9
Undercooked chicken wings were the culprit for John and led him to be chopped after making it to the final two.

Wei Wen, Season 7, Episode 6
Wei was chopped after the third round, unable to recover from a forced move to Plan B execution during the entrée round.

    It was all I could do to make it through this episode. I grew up in restaurants, and I've never, ever, ever seen anything this gruesome. Absolutely gag-worthy. What was the score on their health inspection prior to Irvin and crew's visit?

    Is anyone at this place in charge? If so, does anyone have a CLUE about how to run a restaurant? Tell me why the only person fired was the smart-ass dishwasher. Ole Debbie in the kitchen should have been dragged out of there by the hair of her damn back! She's a serial food poisioner is what I know. Miss Priss the "Manager" needs to put Sensitive Susie back in the goddamn box and either do her job or step off.

    Watching the steam cleaners scraping buckets of grease off of all the kitchen equipment was as appetizing as a luncheon at the slaughterhouse. I wonder what those people's houses look like. I, for one, will not be sad when this place is shuttered in the near future.
