Top Chef Scallop Quote Turns Out to Be a Little Fishy


Earlier, in our Platt chat, we complained that this seasons cheftestants are cooking way too many scallop dishes, but it turns out thats just the half of it. Amuse Biatch has uncovered footage that shows the Top Chef producers at their most devious.

In building their case against the scallop dish Jamie made for the Seven Swans A-Swimming component of the skull-numbingly numbskull 12 Days of Christmas Elimination Challenge, the editors showed 64, blue-eyes-and-calves-of-death gay grointhrob (much better than heartthrob) Cheyenne Jackson saying, I just tried the Seven Swans A-Swimming. A little too slimy. Case closed; bring in the guilty verdict.

And yet, on the bonus footage on Bravos website we get to see Cheyennes complete statement, which we are transcribing just in case the video mysteriously disappears (it starts at the 30-seconds-remaining mark): I just tried the Seven Swans A-Swimming, um, and it was good, surprisingly. Im not usually a scallops person. A little too slimy.

So Jackson was referring to scallops in general. He actually liked Jamies. Really, Top Chef? Its like finding out there is no Santa Claus!
