The Alex Guarnaschelli Zombie Photo
Posted by Jillian Madison

By popular request: here’s the “ridiculous” shot of Alex Zombieschelli overreacting about the taste of her dessert on last night’s episode of The Best Thing I Ever Ate. I should add that this has not been Photoshopped at all, so be very afraid.


You’re at a 9, Alex. We need you at about a 5. If I can’t see your eyeballs, that’s not telling me you’re enjoying your pudding. It’s telling me I should be worried my brains will be the final course.

    Thanks Jillian for this post! I hope people appreciate this is not “Photoshopped.” Its is her real freakishly over-reaction to eating a good tasting food. Its so funny… yet sooo freakish!

    • Martin says:

      Its like she turned into a zombie after tasting her pudding. I never saw anything like this – except in the movies or when eyes roll back during a seizure… Maybe she really was beginning to seizure? Truly, I have never seen anything like this in the course of normal human behavior over a food.

    That’s frickin’ TERRIFYING. Now I know that BBG (Big Bitch Guarnaschelli) has totally lost it. *cowers*

  3. Squarebob Spongepants says:

    I’m guessing that’s also her “O” face.

  4. BoxedWine says:

    Good lord, what a face. That was completely NOT my face for the best thing I ever ate, not that I’m sure I’d want that scrutinized but I’m not on FN.

    I’d probably be guilty of a Giada porn face, only it wouldn’t have been faked or overly done.

    (It was lamb in demi glace with pumpkin rosemary polenta, a hint of lemon, and red wine to drink.

  5. Karma says:


    The best thing she’s ever eaten is PUDDING?

    And I think this chick is a douchebag. She always seems super b*tchy as a judge.

  6. Karma says:

    Hahahahahaha @ that’s also her O face!!

  7. that’s assuming the frigid bitch has ever had one.

  8. Boobilicious says:

    Creepy. Although it makes me curious about that pudding!

    • Martin says:

      It was a warm “Indian Pudding” topped with vanilla ice cream. I am sure it is delicious, but I think she over-acted just a tad..

  9. KATIE says:

    good god that woman’s gorgeous.

  10. Trini says:

    I almost passed out laughing at the thought of her husband’s reaction to such an O face. I bet that would be the last O she’d ever have!

  11. Kevin says:

    I almost wish it was photoshopped… Turn that bowl of pudding into a brain.

  12. Lisa says:

    OMG! I’m just glad to know that I wasn’t the only one who was totally creeped out by that face. Once was enough, but she KEPT MAKING IT!

  13. Syd says:

    Even the color of her face is suspect. Or is that my computer? Either way, it’s horrifyingly funny.

  14. Alex says:

    She reminds me of Michael Jackson in his Thriller music video.

    • Julia says:

      Aack! Me too!!! Was my first reaction when I saw the photo. I watched the show also but just tried to look away when she was on, afraid I missed the actual moment. Thanks for the replay times Matt, will tune in and pay attention this time(If at all possible).

  15. Russian Blockhead says:

    What is it? That pudding looks like heavy-duty split pea soup.

    • Martin says:

      It was a warm “Indian Pudding” topped with vanilla ice cream. It is made with corn meal, eggs, butter, cinnamon, ginger and molasses.

  16. Martin says:

    This show will be repeated again on Saturday Dec 05, 2009 at 7:00 PM ET/PT and then again on Sunday Dec 06, 2009 at 5:30 PM ET/PT… You must see this show to understand the full effect of this most creepy reaction… And to understand this is NOT Photoshopped. He big black eyes just roll back into her head – like a real Zombie!

    Like I said it was so creepy I had to change the channel.

  17. oh_come_on says:

    This should’ve been edited. Really spooky.

  18. Zach says:

    Im pretty sure the green stuff in the bowl she’s holding is what she puked out while being possessed in that photograph.

  19. Marty says:

    She looks really pissed off. I expect smoke to come out of her ears and her head to explode.

  20. dennylou says:

    I’d like to see a side-by-side of this pic and Aunt Sandy’s martini tray pic. That would scare the hell out of me come to think.

    And why is her skin a weird green color?…very exorcist-esque.

    • BoxedWine says:

      Good question about the color. Perhaps the same makeup artist from the Wizard of Oz did hers? (Or an ancestor of the makeup artist.)

  21. RBF says:

    I wish FN would just cut the whole “host tastes food and emotes” segments out of the shows. Alton hardly tastes his cooking – it’s almost a running gag that others get the food instead – and I much prefer real cooking instruction to watching someone else eat. At least there’s the TiVO 15 second skip.

  22. Just Jill says:

    Ahhh! Brains!

  23. J says:

    As long as they don’t ever replay those Best Thing I Ever Ate commercials with that one “chef” poking his tongue from side to side making that moronic face, I’ll be happy.

  24. Cookie says:

    If you can believe it, especially in this picture, she looks just like my landlady, only Alex is much prettier. How’s that for an image, LOL.

  25. Alex says:

    I’VE GOT IT! She looks like Uncle Fester from The Addams Family! Now, just stick a light bulb in her mouth and try to tell me that the resemblance isn’t uncanny.

  26. carniclown says:

    Saw the replay earlier this evening, since I missed the original airing. this psycho b is lucky she wasn’t in the Revolutionary War-she wuld have been the first casualty of the Battle of Bunker Hill, y’all know what I’m talkng about- “Don’t fire till you see … Love this website,thought I was the only one thinking and obcessing over these morons who have taken control of FN.

  27. carniclown says:

    Sorry about any typos/bad spelling, it’s Saturday night and we had a brief visit from Aunt Sandy.

  29. Pam says:

    Wow, that is nightmare fuel.

  30. Uli says:


  31. Alexei says:

    She’s got the dead eyes,

  32. ITSMEDUDE says:

    Is she related to Patton Oswalt?
