“You Are Certainly Rigged for Adventure” — Alton’s Camp Cutthroat After-Show

by in Shows, September 14th, 2016

If the first three weeks of Camp Cutthroat 2: Alton’s Revenge were any indication, anything can happen while chefs are tucked away in the deep woods. And on tonight’s new episode — the fourth heat and the last preliminary battle before next Wednesday’s finale face-off — it seems as if Richard Blais, the judge of the day, had prepared himself for the worst, as he showed up to camp outfitted with not only sunglasses and a hat, but a heavy-duty backpack and a fanny pack as well. “You are certainly rigged for adventure,” Alton Brown told the judge during the After-Show. It turns out it was a good thing that Richard came dressed for a number of occasions, because Alton was quick to test the judge’s outdoor survival skills.

“Think of it as a wax museum of horror,” Alton told Richard, introducing him to a few Heat 4 challenges. Sure, Richard saw the hanging tent, and indeed he came face to face with the snacks-turned-grill-coals.
