The Top Chef Scallop Scandal Continues...

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!

Bull...don't believe a word of it...Tramonto had frozen scallops in the walk in and uses them in his establishment...why would he have said he'd take the shot reguarding them...it's all a cover up to save face with his patrons...now he's sorry he was involved with the show..who knows what else is in his walk in....
