Guy Fieri presents his new show “Tournament of Champions”, where the best chefs compete to test their friendships and their skills.
Even with a foggy lens and less than ideal sound, it turns out that it’s still fun to watch Bill Murray just sit and be the enigmatic artist that he is.
Fans learned this a lot on Friday afternoon when Murray and his son Homer faced Guy Fieri and his son Hunter in the “Nacho Average Showdown”.
The virtual kitchen event, a fundraiser for the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund, saw approximately 10,000 viewers raise close to $ 11,000 during the hour-long livestream. The contest: the Murrays (Bill “coached” while Hunter, a chef cooked in his restaurant in Brooklyn) and the Fieris (Hunter was Guy’s sous chef) had to make the most attractive nachos, according to the judgments of Terry Crews and Shaquille O’Neal (because why not). Chef Carla Hall hosted the whole thing on the Food Network Facebook page.
Yes, fondant nachos were made, but more importantly, there was a very dry humor delivered by Bill. The proud dad spent the livestream at a table surrounded by alcohol (Tito was one of the sponsors of the event), giving his son unnecessary encouragement like, “I am so proud of you, son … You have become so tall, so intelligent … When you were born, I would speak to you, you would not even answer. I thought, will it ever happen? ”
Bill also made the announcement laughing: “Guy Fieri is a famous man as a blonde. And the truth is, he’s a redhead. “
O’Neal also had a helping hand, calling himself “sexier than Terry” on the video call and calling himself “S.T.T. Simply because Crews was another judge. Crews was fine with the nickname, and was fine with bending his beaks throughout the competition.
So what was the winning dish?
Homer presented a beautiful plate that included braised chicken in beer from a wood-fired oven, his homemade “broccamole” (guacamole that uses broccoli instead of avocados), cream, radishes and jalapeño.
The Fieris have created a giant tower of tostadas on a stem filled with macaroni and cheese, chicken nuggets with Tostito crumbs and green chili queso. “We have no idea how we are going to eat this monstrosity,” said Fieri with a laugh.
Crews submitted the first vote, and it was for the Fieri tower, because he called this meal of nacho a “tentacle film” compared to Homer’s “indie” and Crews considers himself “a big brother” of tentpole “.
Shaq chose Homer’s nachos because of a rule stipulation: “I entered a nachos competition. Guy uses tostada (instead of triangular nacho chips). “
In the end, Hill had to vote decisive. After long deliberations, she went with the concoction of the Fieris. But no hard feelings.
Guy thanked the group, especially Bill. “Without Bill’s signature, no one was going to get involved in this hot mess,” he said.
“Let’s do it again when we’re all in the same place together,” proclaimed Bill, broiling the livestream.
