Top Chef on Bravo‘s season finale is upon us this evening, but one question for the dramatic D.C. season still remains: Did Alex Reznik really steal Ed’s pea puree? In an exclusive interview with TV Guide, Alex answers the nagging question that so many viewers want to know. Keep reading for all the details on what Alex had to say!
When TV Guide asked Alex Reznik what really happened to the pea puree, the former Top Chef contestant said “It brought a lot of fun and drama. It’s good for the show because viewers get engaged. With that being said, all I can honestly say is I cooked all my food. I went on the show to showcase my talent and culinary skills. Maybe the show skewed that. At no time during the show did I know the pea puree was an issue and that people were accusing me of stealing something. It’s not in my inherent nature to steal. So at no point did I ever try to defend myself.” So apparently Alex still says he did not steal Ed’s pea puree, but how can we be sure?
In another question, TV Guide asked Alex is anyone actually saw him make his own pea puree in which Alex Reznik replied “Yes, in fact, certain things will come to light – I hope. Amanda saw me make it. The day before, Kelly tasted my peas. The people on the show know I didn’t take it. I can’t really say what happened to Ed’s pea puree. All I know is when I got to the challenge, the first thing I did was puree peas. They can’t show everything. The reality was I won that challenge and it was masked by the pea puree.” So if this is really true, I have to wonder why no one said anything in Alex’s defense……maybe they all just wanted him gone? What do you think really happened? Comment and let us know, we would love to hear your thoughts!
