One of the best aspects of Crime Scene Kitchen is watching our bakers head into the “crime scene” to hunt down clues for what they need to bake. And for the first time ever, the judges have no clue what was actually made in the kitchen.
Joel McHale is in charge of this dessert and this challenge for the eighth episode, “The Quarterfinals: A Sticky Situation.” And that meant Joel actually sent the judges, Curtis Stone and Yolanda Gampp, into the crime scene in order for them to check out the same clues that the competitors found.
Crime Scene Kitchen needs a celebrity season and we blame Joel McHale for why we want it now
By seeing Yolanda and Curtis exploring the Crime Scene Kitchen and watching them struggle to figure out what exactly Joel made in the kitchen, it got us thinking. Since its inception, this series has been a gem.
We love everything that Joel McHale brings to the table and we love the entire premise of the series. But at this point, we would love to see celebrity chefs and bakers in this kitchen.
Getting to see our judges take on the same challenge as the bakers (even if they didn’t have to do the actual baking) was so brilliant that it makes us want to see this on a larger scale. We want people like Duff Goldman, Buddy Valastro, Christina Tosi, and even Paul Hollywood having to explore a kitchen filled with clues and then baking up their own brand of baking magic.
We loved every second of seeing even our judges being stumped by the Crime Scene Kitchen. And of course, having Richard Blais being in charge of the elimination bake, it just adds to the idea of having outside chefs step in to make the mystery bakes over the usual contestants.
Honestly, we just need more Crime Scene Kitchen in our lives and if that also means getting a celebrity season, count us in.
