Alton’s Dream Cutthroat Kitchen Sabotages Revealed

Alton's Dream Cutthroat Kitchen Sabotages RevealedLet’s set the scene: utensils made from aluminum, no salt, missing ingredients and an evilicious grin to top it off. These are all the ingredients that make up Cutthroat Kitchen. Every Sunday night, Alton dishes out sabotages that can trip up even the best of chefs — but here’s the kicker: Alton truly enjoys watching the chefs distribute and overcome the obstacles that are thrown at them.

“I love seeing people play the game, so anything that accentuates that, I’m a fan of. I grew up loving game shows,” Alton recently told FN Dish on the set of his show. “The auctioning segments are my favorite part — I enjoy the strategies used by the chefs,” he continued saying.

So what’s Alton’s dream sabotage? “When it comes to the sabotages, I can envision episodes that take place off set, like outside challenges. Though I don’t necessarily think that bigger is always better,” Alton said. “For instance, I would love to do a show where the sabotages aren’t decided until after the chefs have shopped. Where we’re changing the game as the game goes along. Or another idea I like would be to give them more options: Which would you rather face? Why not give them the opportunity to choose the paths that they would take, like on an obstacle course?”

    What about the auction winner taking 10 items out of another contestant's box, and make them flip a coin to either keep or lose each item.. Heads they keep it, tails they lose it. They have to flip it and catch it and slap it on their wrist. If they drop the coin, it doesn't count. It would take up time and they don't know what they will get to keep.
