The famous exes were the inspiration for a pair of tea-party appropriate sweets prepared on tonight's Top Chef: Just Desserts—and the snuggly pairing of a citrus-filled macaroon with an almond spongecake was the closest the two have been in ages!
Cheftestant Morgan Wilson came up with the idea to do a sweet 'n' sour pairing after spying—timeliness, people!—a tabloid with a "Reggie's got a ring but isn't proposing" story on it.
While that headline probably left a pretty bad taste in Kim's mouth, did she and Reggie prove to be a better pairing on a plate?
"You could taste Kim's bitterness. I don't know if I really enjoyed tasting it," remarked one of the judges' tablemates when she bit into the Kim-inspired bittersweet citrus macaroon.
But while Morgan was called out for making a two-bite dessert instead of a one-biter, Food & Wine Editor-in-Chief Dana Cowin said it was a macaroon she was "willing to take two bites of."
Reggie, for his part, was "easy to eat with a spoon," commented head judge Johnny Iuzzini. "Wow, that's delicious!" marveled Cowin.
In fact, though he didn't win the challenge, Morgan's Reggie-and-Kim coupling was worthy of a second-place finish.
Just like in real life.
