I reiterate what I asked in yesterday's Top Chef: D.C. preview post, "Who got high and came up with these challenges?"

We were privy to some crazy ass challenges last night, the first of which was a baby food challenge. Seriously? Because I'm sure many people would feed their infant duck and curry.

The premise of the second challenge didn't make much sense either. The chefs had to pair up and cook breakfast, lunch and dinner — only the two winning teams from each course didn't have to go on and cook the following courses and were safe from being eliminated, leaving the final three teams to duke it out over the dinner course. Whatsherface (Kelly) and Jersey Bradshaw (Andrea) won the final round (being the best of the worst) and were awarded with European vacations. Did you get all that? I'm still confused.

It got pretty hairy in the final part of the show when Shaft (Kenny) was on the chopping block. It was a nail-biter of an ending!

During the podcast, we discussed Angelo's sexual preferences, the lack of dwarves on Bravo, and our upcoming Top Chef tweetup in Tampa (say that three times fast).

Want to know what happened? Well, then you'll have to listen to the podcast to find out.

Whether you watch the show or not, our review of it is top-notch snark and an all-around good time. Listen to us (attempt to) recap this episode and the hilarity that ensues.

Tune in to Bravo every Wednesday 9 pm EST/8 pm C, check out our own live Tweets during the show (Jeff: @JeffHouck, Katie: @culinarypirate), and listen to our podcast here every week! (You can even download us on iTunes!)
