    Fan Of "Chopped?" Then You're Well Aware That These 9 Things Happen In EVERY Episode

    Why is there only one ice cream machine?!

    1. As they introduce the contestants, one of them inevitably has a major sob story that they immediately talk about.

    This person will either come in first place or be the first one eliminated. There's no in between.

    2. There's some truly disgusting mystery basket ingredient that no one has used before.

    Reindeer pâté? Coagulated pig’s blood? That's it. I'm going to McDonald's.

    3. Someone leaves one of the mystery ingredients off of the plate OR realizes it at the last second and just throws it on top.

    You had one job.

    4. Someone always overcooks their protein or – worse – undercooks it.

    And sometimes it's so severe that the judges just flat out refuse to eat it.

    5. A contestant argues with the judge over the critique of their food.
