Caption It: What Caused Alex to Make This Face?

by in Community, June 14, 2013

Bobby Flay and Alex GuarnaschelliChopped fans know that when it comes to doling out blatantly honest criticism and no-nonsense feedback, Alex Guarnaschelli, a longstanding member of the judges' panel, does it best. She has more than 15 years of experience at the table and knows what winning dishes look and taste like, which means that come Sunday night, Food Network Star finalists will have to cook above and beyond Alex's expectations if they want to impress her. She'll join the Selection Committee as a guest judge during the Chopped-style challenge, overseeing the contestants as they attempt to fuse mystery basket ingredients into camera-worthy meals.

While some contestants may indeed prove to her their culinary chops, others will inevitably disappoint — and then some will simply be so shocking that Alex is rendered nearly speechless at the sight of it. Take a sneak-peek look at the snapshot above from Sunday's all-new episode: Bobby can't help but chuckle as Alex looks on in amazement at what's going on in front of her. What do you think has caused her to make such a face?

Before you tune in this Sunday at 9pm/8c to find out what causes Alex's stunned face, we’re challenging you, Star fans, to write your best captions (tastefully appropriate, please) for this moment in the comments below.

    We love Alex. We know she will pick the right person this Sunday. We are hopping she will pick Danushka Lysek. We think she will be a great star on the show.

    • guest says:

      you are hopping? I am hoping that danushka leaves...she is repulsive.
      Rabbits hope. People hope.

      • Connie says:

        I agree Danushka has no expression...she is boring...I couldn't watch a show she was hosting. I am surprised she wasn't the first to go.

      • Jam says:

        Danushka has the personality of a twig. Why are the judges keeping her? So far 2 focus groups have hated her.

      • Donna says:

        I cannot see why Danushka made it this far. She should have been cut in the first episode.

      • paenutbutder says:

        I thought rabbits hopped...not hoped.

    • Mumma says:

      Danuska is horrible and needs to go!

    • ECB Portland OR says:

      Wrong on so many levels...

    • Fran says:

      If the don't send her home tonight then someone else got a raw deal.

    • isabel says:

      C'mon, she like the other contenders, has presence, but she lacks warmth, dimension, and projects too much indifference and /or negativity. Andres should have stayed in the second round and she should have gone. She does deserve credit though for projecting an enterntaining and dry sense of humor, but I do not think that would work well on a show, consider all the food network stars, they are very different but one thing they all have in common, they all excel at what they do, and they are all likeable. Danushka although gorgeous, spunky and successful in her own way, does not have the "likeable" factor. Neverhtless, kudos to her for qualifying, and having the courage to take risks, and may she have continued success in her work.

    • animal lover says:

      Are you CRAZY or something. I think Danushka is the worst finalist competing for a show!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Simone says:

    Bobby is laughing like the joke is on her.

  3. Foodie3 says:

    "I can't believe I just ate that. I think I'm going to be sick."

  4. MoHub says:

    Bobby: You're not fooling anyone, Alex. Go ahead and swallow it."

  5. Cathy says:

    The longer you hold it in your mouth, the longer you have to taste it.

  6. lcsa99 says:

    I can't think of a caption but I think it's pretty obvious she's imitating Danuska. I just can't see anyone else making that face.

  7. Anne says:

    Danuska creeps me out - Nuff said

  8. Jeremy says:

    Provich - "Bobby, you are not the father"

  9. Robert Ostrowski says:

    EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT! Danushka has been crowned the Next Penny Davidi Lookalike! Alex confesses she is worthy of her own show - ' This is Danushka Lysek. And these are "The Days of My Davidi Lives"! My, what a great soap opera star she'll be. At least McDonald Carey won't have to be the introductory vocalist for THAT one!

  10. Merle says:

    Alex criticized someone and they shot back with a cutting remark. Bobby is thinking ha ha they got you on that one and Alex still can't believe what was said.
