Last night during Top Chef, I noticed something peculiar about judge Gail Simmons’ appearance (not to mention Padma’s beachside bikini garb, but I’m sure Flipit will have more on that…). She seemed to be sporting something during the first half of judging that mysteriously disappeared (or did it?) for the second half. Can you spot what I’m talking about? This one’s for you, Photohunt fans of the world!
Answer after the jump!Give up? Turns out Gail was sporting none other than an earpiece at the judges’ table! While she addressed the challenge winners, the earpiece could be easily seen in her right ear:
However, after the judges sent the winners out, and the next batch of fools entered, the earpiece had mysteriously disappeared!
Or had it? When Gail turned her head to address the Padma region of the table, the earpiece resurfaced — this time in her left ear.
Chances are the judges probably all have earpieces in their left ear (where the camera has no clear shot), which sadly suggests that this panel of persnickety gourmands may not be as sharp as we had previously hoped. We can only assume the producers have been feeding them lines and questions, which I guess shouldn’t be such a shock considering how scripted most reality shows are anyway. I hope this isn’t the case though. I’d be much happier believing Gail has migrating deafness, causing her to wear a hearing aid in one or both ears at any given time. Yeah, that’s probably it.
