The Next Iron Chef Bromance: Chefs That Plate Together, Win Together?

by in Shows, November 30th, 2012

Spike Mendelsohn and Marcel VigneronSomething unprecedented happened on this past Sunday’s episode of The Next Iron Chef. For the first time in Kitchen Stadium, two chefs chose to plate together, which led to their dishes being judged side by side. Was it a good or bad decision on their part? Did it tarnish the sanctity of the competition?

It’s been evident from the beginning of Season 5 that Chefs Mendelsohn and Vigneron have had an alliance. Episode 4 showed viewers how deep their friendship goes. The two competed against one another in the secret ingredient elimination challenge and made the decision to plate their lobster dishes together. But were they to be judged together, sent home together or allowed to win together? All the rival chefs were up in arms by their actions. Ultimately the judges chose to send home Chef Mendelsohn.

FN Dish wants to know, what would you have done if you were a judge? Do you think what went down in Kitchen Stadium was fair? Would you have liked to have seen both chefs saved? Or would you have eliminated both chefs for their antics?

    out of despair the judges appears to be writing their own rules. if both chefs had broken any rules technically both of them should be out of the competition and they are not. this means both chefs did not break any rules they simply prove that both of them are creative and worthy to stay on the competition. the judges even talk about discussing this to the chairman when the chairman is not even around. it comes down to this it is the judges that are breaking the rules and not Chefs Mendelsohn and Vigneron.

    Not impressed with Spike or Marcel. They made their cookoff all about them. Their behaviour is like watching guys in a frat house-the jumping up and down, dancing,calling every one dude & bro…it's rude & an insult to all the chefs,judges and the viewing audience. They have zero respect for all. This is supposed to be "The Next Iron Chef", show, not the Spike & Marcel show. Everyone on the block agrees. They have not even come close to earning the right to be there. Kick them both off. Perhaps after the removel of Marcel we can get back to the real competition of watching real chefs who behave like adults. Chefs who want to be the best at what they do! We are sick of these idiots goofing off , so let's get back to the good stuff. GO Chef Faulkner!

    If Spike wins, I will never watch Iron Chef again. I have been a fan since Japan.

    great achievement.This actually is this kind of large resource that you’re supplyin and also you supply away free of ascribe. I really like glimpsing websites that understand the need for providing an excellent resource free of ascribe.

  6. If there is a special day every man or woman wanted to remember for the rest
    of their lives, that would be their wedding day and the
    moments before that momentous event. In addition,
    be consistent, make sure your photos are likeable, keep your cool
    under pressure, be up to date about the latest trends in the world
    of photography, be a great observer, have the ability ti idealize in such a way that you are able to capture people at their best pose.
