You've got to love some good Top Chef drama. Those nasty frozen scallops may have already gotten Spike kicked off of the show, but the trouble that they have caused has not stopped there.
Apparently, everyone seems very concerned that since Spike pointed it out, people will depart the show with the misconception that guest chef Rick Tramonto actually did have frozen scallops in his walk-in (god-forbid!).
Both Tom Colicchio and Rick Tramonto assure us that this is not the case. Tom Colicchio says on his blog that the Top Chef suppliers added some more ingredients to the walk in at the last second, including the scallops. Also, Tramonto told The Chicago Tribune that he believes the show purposely put the scallops in there to see who would take the bait, calling it "trickery at its best".
You've got to love the drama!
