Cooking with Live Insects on 'Top Chef Masters' (VIDEO)

Warning: Don't watch this while you're eating.
On 'Top Chef Masters' (Wed., 10PM ET on BRAVO), the Quickfire challenge required contestants to create gourmet dishes with crickets, scorpions, nightcrawlers, hornworms and other (not so) delectable bugs.
"I'm grossed out," admitted George Mendes. "I'm fully aware that these insects have a lot of nutrients, vitamins. But if there's a bug that turns up in my apartment, I kill it." He went on to make coconut milk and hornworm soup. "Bleh."
Alex Stratta had a different take: "These are bugs that have been eaten in cultures as long as we've been eating chicken."
