That was the most interesting part of the show for me. 'But...jeez, look at his face!'
I found the entire thing a little incoherent, too much going on. I can just see the planning meeting now.
'Well, what if we did a show where he cooks with a home cook and shows them how to cook'
'How about 20 home cooks watching him cook via skype from around the states!'
'Oh, thats perfect. We should get someone famous on there as well'
'How about whoopi!'
'Oh, perfect, perfect.'
'How about this, we film whoopi off site, then we get another famous person to cook with him in the stadium'
'Yeah, thats awesome. Better yet, lets get 3 of them, one can do each course!'
The end result, a show where you have 20 people skyped into a stadium 'cooking along', also including a celebrity cooking along off site, while three different celebrities cook along onsite. Sprinkle in some not terribly exciting scripted moments (Gordon going through cedric's fridge). Season with botox to taste.
