Though it’s true that The Next Iron Chef rivals are known for their unbreakable focus and competitive mindset, they sure know how to let loose and have fun when the clock stops running and the cameras aren’t rolling. Just watch what happened last week when Chefs Estes, Falkner and Freitag completed a 30-minute three-way Secret Ingredient Showdown. Given the stress of what Chef Freitag called a “pressure cooker situation,” they channeled their nervous energy into a no-holds-barred food fight, whipping handfuls of ingredients across the kitchen.
In the above sneak-peek shot from this Sunday’s episode, it looks as if Chefs Appleman and Greenspan aren’t letting the stress of the competition get them down either. They’re proving that it’s not all work and no play on The Next Iron Chef as Chef Greenspan poses with a dish, making a funny face while lightheartedly teasing his fellow rival. Will the chefs let their lively personalities shine as they’re photographed by a special guest on Sunday, or will they come across as subdued and serious?
