On last night’s Food Network Star, Alton Brown played the interloping auctioneer to the six remaining competitors and an audience of so-called “gastronauts.” You know what, we’re just relieved no one used the word “foodie” here, so it’s fine.
And how did Rodney, the “pie-style” guy, attempt to charm the crowd into bidding on his pie? With PUNS! Now, some of us love puns and some of us are made uncomfortable by them. But basing a whole pitch around how much you cherish, love, and respect astronauts, only to take a pretend-call from Bobby Flay (who is sitting right in front of you, delivering palpable side-eye) and pretend-realize that you were actually speaking to a crowd of gastronauts is pretty funny! And by funny, we mean excruciating.
