TOP CHEF, Hosea, Tom Colicchio

After kicking things off with a hot-dog-making challenge, the chefs got to work in head judge Tom Colicchio's kitchen at Craft, but the results were not always pretty.

Unless it was the Fabio's carpaccio, which looked gorgeous and apparently tasted just as good. And considering the dish had to win over a bunch of disgruntled chefs who'd been rejected from Top Chef, that's saying something.

But the crab salad prepared by Hosea (above) disappointed, as did an ostrich-egg quiche and a dessert that host Padma Lakshmi spit into her napkin. That's something we hope never to see again.
