Caption It: Face Plant

by in Community, June 21, 2013

Alton Brown, Giada De Laurentiis and Bobby FlayIt's no secret that the finalists face a mountain of pressures week after week, cooking against the clock in all-or-nothing challenges, strutting their stuff for a crew of cameras and enduring hours-long evaluations that ultimately determine their futures. But what about the mentors, Alton, Bobby and Giada? They, too, grapple with a series of Star stresses, as it is, after all, up to them to narrow down the crop of contestants before you, the fans, choose your next star. The burden is on them to find each competitor's strengths and weaknesses, and give them the tools they need to show off the former and improve the latter, all while maintaining the distance and fairness of a judge. Alton, Bobby and Giada handle the job differently depending on the day, but for each of them, when the work becomes particularly trying, sometimes all that's left to do is laugh.

Take a look at the sneak-peek photo above from Sunday's all-new episode: Alton, Giada and Bobby have gathered at evaluation, and it seems that for Giada, the moment is simply too much to bear. She's face-first on the table while Alton offers a well-meaning giggle and Bobby displays a look of apparent confusion. Do you think they've just endured a particularly difficult elimination, or have they taken a brief break from deliberation to relax among friends?

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

    There is more to Paula Deen's dismissal than the use of the N word. It started with her hiding her diabetes for 3 years, escalated with her admission to using the N word, and got worse with the revelation about the Plantation wedding. She was becoming a toxic commodity at the network, so they decided to let her go.

    The question now is: What about her reruns? And what about Bobby and Jamie's shows? Is the entire family now persona non grata?

      Hiding her diabetes? The personal health of any of the FN chefs is none of our business! No one howls about Mario Batali's weight, or complains about Guy Fieri shoving unhealthy diner food in his mouth in four hour marathons of DDD. As far as I know, FN doesn't have their stars sign behavior agreements. It will be interesting to see it play out, though- they righteously fired Robert Irvine for padding his resume, then had to re-hire him when fans threw a fit.

      Where does Lisa Jackson fit into this?

    Alton: Omigod, they killed Giada!
    Bobby: You bastards!

    Alton (to Giada): Actually, neither Boby nor I are wearing pants right now.

  4. nicole says:

    alton: haha shes sleeping, lets draw a mushtash on her!
    bobby: that is too childish.

  5. Jessica says:

    Giada looks like she's having an "Oh god why?!!" moment.

  6. pat says:

    You dumped her. I dump you. Can not take anymore of this. You will regret this action but it will be too late. By the way you have been going down and you just got rid of your biggest asset. Not too smart.

  7. Bob says:

    Giada: How c-could you eat my penne alla v-vodka with tomatoes and sausage i-mported f-from Italy???!

    Bobby: You made me tempted. And it's funny to see you cry like that.

    Alton: I love this.

    I think I need a microscope. Where is the food?!

  9. animal lover says:

    This whole "get someone back one the show thing" leaves me cold!

    I always thought that Giada rocked ... but I didn't know she was a headbanger!
