  • Tim Love Takes on Iron Chef Morimoto in a chili-themed culinary battle.

    This episode has become famous for its highly questionable final verdict.

    Many aspects of the episode appear staged and are quite insulting to any intelligent viewer, but none so much as the final verdict in which Tim Love is chosen over the clear winner, Iron Chef Morimoto.

    As upsetting as it is, I still have to give this episode a high rating for Morimoto's astonishing, and genuinely entertaining, performance.

    This episode is also known for a moment in which Love incorrectly informs judge Jeffrey Steingarten, during the tasting portion of the show, that his prepared bone marrow dish consists of 100% degenerated protein.
