* In the Season 3 ''Chopped Champion'' finale, chef Jun Tanaka admits that his first exposure to cooking was when, as a child in Japan, his mother ran a baking class out of their kitchen, where he spent most of his time under the kitchen table looking at the women's legs.
* Robert Irvine was on one of the celebrity episodes, and was positively disgusted with the presence of BrandX Fruit Loops as an ingredient. He doesn't even open the box like a normal person--he takes a gigantic butcher's knife and effectively guts the box to access the cereal. Even the other judges can't help but react to the sight of this talented chef showing his opinion of the ingredient.
* In an all-fried-foods episode, one contestant puts canned chickpeas in hot oil before they're thoroughly dried; oil then spews from his dutch oven. This prompts Amanda Freitag to deliver a public-service announcement to one of the cameras, smiling the entire time she delivers her message:

* In the dessert round of part 1 of "Chopped: Impossible," one of the contestants is making a tuile (a savory wafer cookie), and tries making it on the stove, but doesn't have enough leverage to properly flatten it. What does she do? She gets another baking sheet to put on top of the tuile mix, puts it on the floor and then ''uses her bodyweight to flatten it by standing on it''. Ted and the judges notice this and are obviously a little confused, but also seem to find it funny that she's doing this.
* In an episode called "Better Saffron than Sorry," while the contestants are hanging out in that area they go to when they get done with a round, one of the chefs says, "At least they didn't give us lamb testicles." And guess what one of the ingredients in the second round basket is? ''Lamb fries (testicles)''.
* In an episode called "Momumental," where all the contestants were moms, a basket ingredient in the second was carrot baby food, and the moms were obviously a little surprised to see it, with one of them commenting that she hadn't seen or even used baby food since her own children were babies. Alex Guarnaschelli, one of the judges who's a mother herself, admitted that the only time she herself has ever actually tasted baby food is when her daughter had thrown it at her while she was eating.

* In an episode where all the contestants were college students, one of the contestants was a girl who was a senior at the University of Washington in Seattle, and she was only 18--when she first reveals this to Ted and the judges (two of whom were Marc Murphy and Chris Santos), they're obviously a little confused, and she explains that she [[GradeSkipper skipped a few grades and started her freshman year of college when she was only 15]]. Marc jokingly said to Ted and the other judges (mainly Chris), "Bet you feel like a dumbass now."
