'Top Chef: Just Desserts': The five most ridiculous shots from Bravo's low-rent Willy Wonka promo

Posted on

Image Credit: Scott Schafer/BravoWe’ve spent much of today tracking the Top Chef: Just Desserts truck in NYC, which has been serving up free ice cream, cupcakes, truffles, and “compost cookies” to regular pedestrians and important bloggers. The thing’s made at least three stops within a four-block radius of the EW office since this morning. (I had a huge scare around 12:30 when the truck was pulling away — only to discover it was just rolling down the street to 30 Rock. Almost had to go Pretty Woman on them. “Big mistake. Big. Huge! I have to go blogging now…”)

Archana Ram will be recapping tonight’s premiere later on, but for now, I could not resist sharing some choice moments from the low-rent Willy Wonka promo….

5. Yummy! Okay, if you say so! I’ll just have to take your word for it. But that cake looks jank.

4. Cake-pop. Needs confetti.

3. Egg toss toward camera. Heather Hurlbert (!) demonstrates a tried-and-true method of detracting attention from fellow contestants.

2. Chocolate-covered strawberry pillow fight. Contestant Zac Young could never have predicted that his demise would come not at the hands/seeds of a killer fruit, but from a seemingly benign chocolate drizzle.

1. Gail leaning awkwardly against giant cake. Come on.

Good thing this loser’s not on the show.

Who’s in for tonight’s premiere (Bravo, 11:01 p.m. ET)?
