Cooking Competition Bonanza!

For the fourth of July, I did what most Americans do at a normal frequency: I sat on the couch and watched TV for a few hours. Come on, don’t blame me for being lazy. It was my first day off in a loooooong time and fireworks are illegal in Spokane County (like in Boulder).

Personally, I like cooking competitions. I think it’s because people are put under pressure and yet they’re innovative and someone always prevails.

I also like non competition cooking shows like kitchen nightmares. I like 1) watching Gordon Ramsay rip someone a new one and 2) making something better.

Now over the last few years, I’ve watched a ton of shows. I’m not limited to just Food Network, I watch shows on Fox and Netflix too.

Anyways, yesterday something crazy happened…

While I was watching Cutthroat Kitchen (my latest cooking show obsession), a couple of the contestants seemed oddly familiar. Like I’ve seen their faces and heard their voices before.

Then I realized I have seen those people before, but in different shows!

Was also a contestant in the most recent season of Hell’s Kitchen (season 15).

mmmm…fries

She did pretty well in Hell’s kitchen. She made it to the top 4 and didn’t get a spot in the finale.

And this chick:

Was also on Kitchen Nightmares

Don’t be fooled by her welcoming smile and display of food.

When she appeared on Kitchen Nightmares, her and her ex husband’s Cuban restaurant was failing apart untilĀ Gordon Ramsay came in a saved it. I’m pretty sure it’s still open right now.

I want to point out these people have now appeared on two different channels. Cutthroat Kitchen is on Food Network and Ramasy’s shows are on Fox.

When I made this connection I realized I watch a TON of cooking shows. I should probably stop.

Well, I’ll stop eventually. For now, I’m going to watch some more Cutthroat Kitchen. ^_^
