Drink 1 Sip:

  • Any time a chef compares cooking with magic RE: David Copperfield
  • When the Last Chance Kitchen winner tries to laugh off his tiny cot next to Marjorie’s king-size bed.
  • Any time a chef says “this is the finals.” We got it, chefs. We’ve been here all season.
  • Any time a chef mentions that ____ is in his/her area of expertise, because he or she does it at the restaurant.
  • Any time a chef mentions that people LOVE this dish at the restaurant.
  • When a chef says they’ve never made ____ before.
  • When a judge says a dish is under-seasoned.
  • When a judge says something is undercooked.
  • When a judge says something is overcooked.
  • When a judge just “doesn’t get” the dish.
  • When one of the chefs is “there to win, not to make friends.”
  • When a judge is disappointed that people are still making bad food this late in the game.
  • When a chef says that it’s an honor just to have made it this far. Nah, winning is better.


Drink 2 Sips:

  • When Padma makes a terrible joke.
  • Any time Tom comes up with a pun based on either the name of the dish or an aspect of the challenge
  • When a chef or judge says “someone has to go home.” Thank you for reminding us!
  • If Padma is drunker than you and you need to catch up.
  • When the winner of Last Chance Kitchen is revealed (Please let it be Amar)
  • When Marjorie says she LOVES Isaac, but his food just isn’t refined enough, and you need to be more refined to win.

Take A Shot:

  • When whoever goes home says “this won’t be the last you see of me.”


  • Anytime someone says, “Vegas, Baby!”
  • Anytime someone says, “What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas”
  • Anytime someone says something to the tune of, “This is Vegas! Anything can happen.”

Thanks for playing! We’ll be back tomorrow with a recap in case you can’t remember what happened. Cheers!
