Listen Carefully — The Next Iron Chef Caption It

by in Shows, November 30th, 2012

Alton Brown and Chef Nate ApplemanAfter last week’s doozy of a Secret Ingredient Showdown in which Chefs Spike Mendelsohn and Marcel Vigneron threw caution to the wind and presented to the judges as The Next Iron Chef‘s first-ever alliance, some fans may be ready for a return to Redemption normalcy, or at least some semblance of predictability. But with just six finalists remaining and the Chairman’s dreaded ingredient auction looming, the competition is just heating up and the next episodes will be the most-shocking yet as the chefs are faced with do-or-die challenges and last chances for success.

No stranger to either high or low moments of The Next Iron Chef, host Alton has witnessed all of the most-unforgettable moments in Kitchen Stadium and surely knows what the rivals should — and should not — be thinking, doing and cooking at this stage of their journey. In the above sneak-peek shot from Sunday’s new episode, Alton seems to have pulled Chef Nate Appleman aside to share a quick bit of information intended for his ears only. What do you think Alton is dishing about in his one-on-one chat with Chef Nate? Where are the other rivals, and why aren’t they privy to what Alton has to say?

Before you tune in this Sunday at 9pm/8c to watch what happens next, we’re challenging you, Next Iron Chef fans, to write your best captions (tastefully appropriate, please) for this secretive moment in the comments below.

    Will somebody PLEAZZZZZZZZE ask Spanish-speaking chefs (Aarón Sánchez, Marcela Valladolid, José Andrés, or even Rick Bailis, to teach everybody how to pronounce Spanish terms correctly? Just like Giada pronounces her lovely Italian, and others pronounce their French terms very correctly, I truly beg you to get that right in Spanish. NOBODY pronounces "Paella" correctly, among other terms like Habanero, Empanada, Rellenos…. etc.
    In music, an "Habanera" is not the same as a "Malagueña", or a "Polonaise". Please make a special show on "Culinary Pronounciation" where all the Star Chefs go to language class. That would be fun.

    Oh! as for the "Bromance" of those Frat-House Prancksters, yes they should have been BOTH kicked out, but since they can't live (cook) without eachother, maybe "divide and conquer" was a good choice. Now I hope to see Vigneron ousted immediately next Sunday. I'm all for Elizabeth Falkner! but I have great respect for all the serious Chefs in there.

    Appleman: I found my shoes on clearance for 3 dollars at Walmart.

  4. Language says:

    Non Spanish speakers speak more Spanglish than the true language. I agree its good to have positive representation of a language. There are many Italian chefs who speak perfect Italian and it is very helpful to those of defunct in the language. Thank you for bringing the topic up! I'd like to see more chefs pronounce pierogi, borcst or makowic perfectly–not enough Pole representation.

    Caption: "OK, Nate, – I've got your back. Whatever crap you serve, I'll defend it. You can count on me."

  7. FanFare59 says:

    We creeps have to stick together. "Let's do 'Me and My Shadow' – with the old soft shoe".

  8. Mister Dyingly Sad says:

    Yes, the opening we're filling results from Cat Cora's departure, but no, you don't HAVE to be gay.

  9. Caption It says:

    Never turn your back on a man holding a can with a question mark.
