Cutthroat Kitchen (5/25)

Is Chef Maverick the single worst contestant in three seasons of Cutthroat Kitchen? Gave himself a sabotage, finished early, didn't add fat to his bison, and tried to spend more money than he had in the third auction of THE FIRST ROUND. And then went home for dry food.

Fucking amazing.

Nice to see the simultaneous deadly biases of "women are not a threat" and "pastry chefs are not a threat" playing themselves out as per usual.

Weird seeing Zakarian, who has spent his life scouring the universe for the Anti-Fun Equation, bringing his uberserious bullshit to the most entertaining show on Food Network. I know they needed a fourth for next week's Judges Compete show, but I hope it's only a one-off like Giada.
