Tonight is a very slow night for new TV, and because of that, JJ and Megan are taking the night off. But Kyle & I are here to tell you what we think you should be watching, so read on! 🙂
There are several things on tonight for me, a couple of which are actually surprising even to me. (I quit watching Royal Pains very early this season, but I want to watch Evan & Paige get married… And I didn’t watch Ashley’s season of The Bachelorette, but I’m a sucker for this type of thing, so I’ll be watching her wedding to J.P. 🙂 ) But the show I’ll enjoy most tonight is the new episode of The Next Iron Chef. Last week was all about fusion—awkward and just plain wrong food pairings, like chicken liver & peppermints, bone marrow & Skittles, calamari & mini marshmallows, and more. Surprisingly, the judges liked most of the dishes. In the end, it was Chefs Appleman & Mehta that got sent (erroneously, in my opinion) to the Secret Ingredient Showdown. Neither chef excelled in the challenge, but Chef Appleman won by virtue of his whole shrimp head he included in his dish, sending Chef Jehangir Mehta home. I honestly don’t know who I’m rooting for anymore. Some of my favorites coming into the competition have shown incredible attitude, so Chef Amanda Freitag might be my frontrunner now.
On tonight’s episode, “Transcendence,” the four remaining competitors encounter famed magician David Copperfield, who magically reveals an ingredient to be utilized by the chefs in a challenge that involves constructing a delicious Las Vegas-style buffet meal.
Don’t miss the competition tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Next Iron Chef @ Clicker.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing Sugar Dome, The Bachelorette: Ashley & J.P.’s Wedding, & Royal Pains.
