Curl power was in effect Thursday night (Aug. 18) when Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman and Food Network personality Sunny Anderson teamed up to knock out chef Bobby Flay on the Food Networks’ Beat Bobby Flay.
The oh-so-sweet Kimberly was in a competitive mood when she went after Bobby Flay right from the beginning. “I’m ready to take you down Bobby,” Kimberly said. “I need one more trophy on my mantel and it’s the Beat Bobby Flay trophy.” Zing!
Aside from being one-fourth of the Grammy winning country group Little Big Town, Kimberly is a cook in her own right. Cooking as long as she can remember, Kimberly released a cookbook of her own called Oh Gussie: Cooking and Visiting in Kimberly’s Southern Kitchen. So the blonde stunner is no stranger to the kitchen.
Kimberly and Sunny’s roles were to judge the dishes in the first round between executive chef Kevin Des Chenes and executive chef Jenny Dorsey, but also add commentary in the second round as the winner took on Bobby Flay. After the judges decided that Jenny’s dish of a blue cheese mushroom salad with grilled grapefruit and a hot sauce vinaigrette was superior to Kevin’s creation of a blue cheese infused beef slider with a blue cheese stuffed olive, Jenny went up against Bobby Flay and the gloves came off.
Jenny and Bobby went head-to-head making Wonton Soup. The renowned chef took a verbal ribbing from Kimberly and Sunny—in the nicest way possible. “You are a little dumpling Bobby. But you’re not going to win,” Kimberly shouted. “Poor Bobby. I wonder how he’s doing on his dumplings— I wonder what they look like. Not good,” she said taunting Bobby.
Even when she’s competitive, it’s super sweet.
The winner between Bobby and Jenny was… Jenny! “Bobby just got beat by a 25-year-old,” teased Kimberly just for good measure.
