Tom and Padma plus a table of toys and food.
They are making the dish for Tom and Padma's kids both who are under 10 months old. They are going to judge puréed food? In true reality show form, shouldn't the babies be fed this food? And! It's a high stakes challenge with two winners chosen and each getting $10,000. Arnold, if chosen, wants to give his money to an orphanage.
This guy wants to spend it on a hooker and an eight ball thereby cementing his place as the creepy bad chef of Top Chef DC. Just letting him near baby food seems über creepy. Then again not much creepier than Tom and Padma exploiting their own kids for a Top Chef challenge.With this many chefs......they didn't really cover the food too much, just the highs and lows. With a challenge this silly, I'm not covering it at all except that to say the top four were Kenny, Angelo, Lynn and Tamisha with the money going to Kenny and Tamisha. I will say that Tom and Padma seem to be ok with feeding their babies food with things like licorice oil and fenugreek and since I have no children or any experience feeding a baby food, we'll have to leave it at that. Hopefully we won't be seeing this challenge again next season or showing up on Top Chef Masters because it was Crap on a Plate.
