(S07E03) "A lot of people are starting to throw each other under the bus already," said Arnold at the outset of this episode, and, with the yelling and jockeying for position this week, there's no doubt that we're in store for a vicious, super-competitive season.

The day kicked off with the contestants walking into the kitchen to find host Padma Lakshmi and judge Gail Simmons lying in wait with pastry legend Johnny Iuzzini by their sides. (Simmons and Iuzzini, Executive Pastry Chef at Jean Georges, are the hosts of Bravo's upcoming 'Top Chef: Just Desserts.')

Jonathan WaxmanChef Jonathan Waxman of Barbuto in New York City was eliminated in fourth place on the second season of 'Top Chef Masters.' Read what he had to say about getting the boot:

What happened?
I was just exhausted. When you're exhausted and you go into muscle collapse, that's where I was. I was done, so if I was a little bit terse or whatever, that's only because I was exhausted and I wanted to go home.

So you don't feel like you gave it your all?
No, I gave it my all. I just didn't have that much to give, you know what I'm saying? It's like the end of a marathon. How fast can you go? There's always gonna be someone that's reserving their power and I didn't ... I was out of shape too. I was kind of fat if I'm being honest with you. Susur was in good shape. So was Rick. Look at Marcus, he's like 25 years younger than me.

A Surprise Birthday Party on 'Top Chef Masters'When you're in the middle of a very tense contest, it's good to take some time out to have some fun. On the latest episode of 'Top Chef Masters' (Wed., 10PM ET on Bravo), host Kelly Choi said this to the contestants: "We have a little business to take care of." Then, a group of uniformed attendants wheeled a cart into the kitchen.

Usually on 'Top Chef,' this would mean some new type of horrifying challenge for the cooks. But as it turned out, Choi just wanted to celebrate chef Jonathan Waxman's 59th birthday. A large cake shaped like the French Alps was brought in -- to commemorate the fact that Waxman usually spends his birthday in the mountains with his family.

There was even a miniature figure of the chef on top of the cake. However, the figure seemed to be falling off the mountain -- possibly because it was drunk, Waxman theorized. Oh well. On the plus side, at least he didn't have to cook anything -- or bake his own cake.
