Though Alton Brown frequently makes the Bobs endure all manner of evilicious escapades in the name of sabotage on Cutthroat Kitchen, on tonight’s After-Show, two of his sidekicks suffered nothing short of an epic battle following the Camp Cutthroat 2 finale.
To celebrate the fifth and final heat of his wild camp tournament, Alton waged a down-and-dirty war on the top-two chefs in Round 3, complete with barbed wire, fox holes and “grenades” (aka water balloons). Just like chefs Daniel and Gabriel had to face off, so too did two Bobs on the After-Show, only the Bobs weren’t tasked with outcooking each other; they simply had to scurry their way through Alton’s makeshift “race course,” as the host called it. But just because Alton and judge Richard Blais weren’t about to race through the dirt doesn’t mean they didn’t enjoy a little competition of their own. “I’m putting all of [my money] on Crockett,” Richard proclaimed, betting on the Bob who donned a Davy Crockett-style faux-raccoon hat to win the race. Alton, however, showed his support for “short Bob,” he said, before moving to a rock perch to launch water-balloon grenades at the Bob with Richard.
“We’re throwing these at the Bobs? Usually the Bobs are doing stuff to me,” a thrilled Richard said of the water balloons when he realized how mightily the tables had turned for him. “Hope that cap’s waterproof, Crockett,” he joked. No sooner did Alton yell “Go” to signal the start of the race did he and Richard start launching the balloons — and nearly not stop throwing them. While Alton dropped the grenade action after Crockett Bob scored first place in the race, Richard got caught up in the excitement, continuing to heave balloons one after another before ultimately collecting his $5 winnings from Alton.
