    Use a juicer as a sabotage. The person who gets it must juice all their fruits and veggies (even if they're not planning on using them) along with a bag if fruits/veggies provided by Alton. They may use the juice or dried pulp in their meal, but no non-juiced fruits/veggies.

    A simple one for the genre savvy chefs: in the first round, let them bid on a package of white truffle oil, sweet chili sauce, and a requirement to use the word "deconstructed" before the name of the dish, assigning one to each of the other chefs.

    make one chef use a slicer to cut clay as only knife.

    Dear Food Network,

    I realize How much Alton Brown gets into his work and loves to com up with interesting sabotages for his challengers. I would like to auction of a substitute of a Durian for all the contestant's fruit for a desert challenge. I realize the durian is considered an Asian delicacy but it is not used much in this country, I imagine few chef's in this country know how to use it and I believe it would be a fiendishly good challenge.

    Sincerely,
    Ralph Woestemeyer

    Have 4 boxes, each with a good or bad item. Auction winner gets to give each player, without knowing contents, a box. The boxes are then opened and could contain spices, loss of items, etc. One box contains money that can be used immediately. Maybe call it a blind auction?

  8. Amber Godby says:

    When you call time, don't let the judge come out just yet. Auction off the ability to switch dishes.

  9. Westfallin says:

    Have a show where all the sabotages are based on other food network competition shows:
    Chopped…self explanatory
    Iron chef–have a contestant in a tin man suit, or make a cast iron skillet their only cooking dish
    Food network star– use throwing stars for knives
    Guys grocery games– alter what they're allowed to shop for
    The pioneer woman– costuming involved there
    5 ingredient fix…and so on. Maybe Bobby Flay could guest star and contestants would have to beat him in something to earn ingredients

    1. The winner of the auction picks two chefs. Those chefs are not allowed to taste their own food. They are allowed to taste each other's food and provide feedback, honesty is optional.

    2. Replace all of another chef's knives (or all utensils) with axes and hatchets. (The logo, title image always makes me think of this.)
