Scenes From A Top Chef Reunion
So, how did the cheftestants feel about the challenges? Andrea says some crap about the challenges letting them each shine, but Harold says that the wedding challenge "was just bullshit." You tell 'em, Harold! Colicchio belligerently wants to know what was so hard about it. Harold's at a loss in the face of Colicchio's obtuseness, but finally points out that going to a grocery store to shop for a wedding was ridiculous. Colicchio gives him that. Dave also tries to explain why it was so hard. Finally, Harold brings up the wedding cake, and Tiffani tries to interrupt him. I'm not sure what she was saying, but Harold asks her, "Can I explain my answer? Jesus Christ!" But he never gets the chance, because Bot shows clips of how the cheftestants unwound in their downtime. They drink. Miguel does The Shuffle with Lee Anne while still wearing his crazy wig o' shanter. At some point, Dave's wearing the wig o' shanter and doing some weird dance in the Baker Street that ends with him dropping his drink. Shots of Miguel passed out on the floor, and Stephen carefully making his way upstairs. Hard to tell if he's drunk or just mincing in his usual way. Now we get Andrea pacing in circles around the roof deck talking to herself: "So our food becomes ourselves becomes our blood becomes our organ becomes our mind. Food for thought." All she needs is a black turtleneck and a dive bar. We learn that the cheftestants didn't get much sleep. Duh. Harold says he was "blessed" with professionally snoring roommates. Miguel stands up and tootles himself as someone calls out, "Chunk La Funk!" Cut to clips of Miguel getting his nickname. Lots of shots of him eating, then he tells us that he got the nickname because he's a big guy and he eats a lot. Clips of him farting. Miguel interviews that the nickname says who he is: he's chunky and funky. Tiffani says that Miguel is not the person you want to watch running around the house in tighty-whities. "He's like a blob of a mess of a human being that just doesn't have any manners," Andrea says in an interview. Candice is laughing in an interview about why Miguel has these ten pieces of hair that come down his forehead like Homer Simpson. In the studio, Colicchio is totally cracking up over that. Andrea and Candice both say Miguel has a big heart.
