The Sesame Street Monsters Show Up to Judge a Cookie Competition on 'Top Chef All Stars' (VIDEO)

Sesame Street Muppets, 'Top Chef All Stars'Things took a turn for the silly on 'Top Chef All Stars' (Wed., 10PM ET on Bravo) when several of the 'Sesame Street' monsters stopped by to judge a cookie competition. Of course, that meant Cookie Monster would be there, and he was joined by both Elmo and Telly.

Telly seemed to take the competition pretty seriously, while Elmo used the opportunity to crack jokes. When one of the contestants mentioned using thyme in her recipe, Elmo asked, "How much time?"

"45 minutes," Cookie Monster replied seriously.

Later, we learned that coconut milk is good both for human skin and monster fur. For a moment, we thought Elmo might throw milk on himself, but even without the physical comedy, the Muppets had the cast cracking up. Cookie Monster was certainly enjoying eating cookies and throwing crumbs all over the restaurant.

Elmo proved to be a candid judge when it came down to it, though the jokes kept coming. In describing one cookie, he said, "It looked like cow chips."

At the shocked reaction from the group, he defended his stance. "Well, it did," he said. And then he enunciated each word carefully and slowly. "Cow. Chips."

Who needs Simon Cowell if you can have Elmo? Brutal honesty in a cute -and funny- package! The Sesame muppets should be guest judges on Idol, too!

I wouldn’t mind if Antonia or Dale left. They are not worthy of Top Chef and frankly annoying. I’d say Angelo had more skill, but wasn’t much better. I’m sad to see his Bromance broken up though. http://foodiegossip.blogspot.com/2011/02/top-chef-all-stars-angelo-sosa-mike.html

I have never been a Sesame Street fan, either as a kid or an adult, but I have to say this particular Quick Fire challenge was extremely entertaining (one of the best QF challenges, if not the best), and had me in stitches. And it was funny to see the faces of the competing Chefs when their cookies were being critiqued. I think the Chefs and Padma genuinely had a good time with that one.

Man I could not stop laughing during this portion of the show. Forgot how funny Sesame Street was when I was young.

I do not have a high opinion of reality shows with a few rare exceptions. This show is not one of those exceptions. However, I was flipping channels last night and caught part of this episode. Cookie Monster was devouring one of the preparations presented to him. Seeing that made this particular episode of the show worth watching.
