finally a non-plussed throwdown victim?

i'm catching bits of one of bobby flay's "throwdowns," where he "takes on," in this case, an ice cream maker. i've always hated this show, as i find the concept of tricking talented people into thinking they have a shot at tv, only to find themselves being asked to pit their life's passion, or at least their major talent, against that smug bobby flay rather offensive.

from what i caught, this ice-cream maker (name escapes me...i'm doing laundry) was not only displeased at the trickery, but didn't seem to even recognize bobby flay. anyone else catch this?

what happens to these unwitting contestants after their, uh..."throwdowns?" or are they as unwitting as they seem?
