Watch Tom Colicchio Get a Smackdown on Top Chef

New, 18 comments

Last night on Top Chef Texas, cheftestapant Grayson Schmitz defended her choice of making a chicken salad sandwich to judge Tom Colicchio. Said Colicchio, who called her choice boring, "Did you ever think.. I'm gonna win this with a chicken salad sandwich?" Grayson Schmitz puts Colicchio in his place: "I think it's definitely possible... I always want to win this... I thought I could make an elevated chicken salad sandwich to compete with meatballs and Asian food." Colicchio followed up on Twitter this morning: "The point I was trying to make was when Grayson and Chris decided to make Chicken salad they had no idea what they were going up against."

Based on the facial expressions alone, it's truly an editing tour de force. Watch:
