The Cutthroat Kitchen Episode Alton Brown Wishes He Could Make

Food Network personality Alton Brown, has been a mainstay on the channel for more than 20 years. In that time he's worked on a number of shows including "Good Eats," where he looked at the science and technique that was involved in preparing our favorite entrees (via IMDb). Brown is also well known for appearing on the long running series "Iron Chef America" and hosting "Cutthroat Kitchen." The latter featured four cooks competing in three challenges, where they could be eliminated. In a unique twist, participants could also buy opportunities to sabotage each other during each episode.

This, of course, led to some pretty interesting scenarios like one chef that had to cook his meatballs while he was placed in a ball pit (via Food Network). Another fan favorite was when a contestant had to utilize a hammock as his work station, which meant that a lot of his ingredients kept falling through the holes. Viewers also laughed when a participant was forced to make his meal using hilariously long handled tools that placed him far away from his food. Given the amount of unusual situations the show has imagined for these competitors, it may come as a surprise that Brown has even more ideas up his sleeve.

Alton Brown thinks the sabotages on the show can go even further

The cookbook author told the Food Network that he'd like to have an episode where the sabotages aren't decided until after the chefs have shopped for their items. "Where we're changing the game as the game goes along," Brown explained. "Or another idea I like would be to give them more options: Which would you rather face? Why not give them the opportunity to choose the paths that they would take, like on an obstacle course?"

We're not exactly sure what this training course would look like, but it sounds like something that would be pretty difficult to get through while trying to create an impressive dish. The food show presenter also said he'd love to see the competition take place in different locations. "When it comes to the sabotages, I can envision episodes that take place off set, like outside challenges," Brown revealed. "Though I don't necessarily think that bigger is always better." Sounds like television gold to us, which is probably why the celebrity chef continues to be a mainstay on the network.
