The Ultimate Nacho Showdown with Brad Leone and Sean Evans | Sean in the Wild

  • Published: 21 November 2017
  • When it comes to the culinary arts, nachos are the perfect blank canvas for creativity in the kitchen. But who can stack the tastier plate of tortilla chips, cheese, and toppings—Sean Evans or Bon Appétit's Brad Leone? Stepping into the nacho-battle terror-dome (otherwise known as the Bon Appetit test kitchen), Sean goes head-to-head with another YouTube food legend. As the host of Bon App’s “It’s Alive,” Brad is used to getting wild with his ingredients. But will home-court advantage be any match for Sean’s Chicago-inspired platter? Find out when Bon Appétit Deputy Editor Andrew Knowlton issues his final verdict.

      I don’t know. I think Nachos is a medley of key ingredients. One layer or 3 that’s your own spin.
      Like mac and cheese: by adding in meat, veggies and other sauces etc. is it still mac and cheese? Nope!

        Sean was actually starting to tear up at the end. I'm not trying to promote toxic masculinity, but Sean is a bitch.

          Andrew played Sean by saying "I had to do this..." to Brad, like Sean really thought he was going to win

              I like brads voice because you don’t know if he’s patronizing you or just joking

                  He's a very intelligent guy. You don't get to where he is being a dumbie. He can put a smug little jackass like Sean in his place when he needs to.

                        Sean's looked and sounded gross... I'd love to eat Brad's! and even before I saw what each guy was going to make I was going to say the best nachos I ever made had pulled pork on them. I remember when I came up with that idea the other people that were there thought I was crazy but then they all loved it!

                              Shitty youtube algorithm just recommended this today but then i see garbage vegetables going into a nacho cheese sauce maybe Youtube has it's reasons after all.

                                    Sean Evans and Brad Leone in the same video?!? Pshh. You foodies are nailin' it. You keep trusting your gut, Brad, you're rockin the house down. You too, Sean, you King of Capsaicin you. Just momentarily thought about a YouTube with no Sean or Brad videos and let me tell ya, it was a bummer, don't do it.

                                                  Hows this guy a food editor and doesnt like olives or relish. Like wtf that automatically destroys your access to thousands of dishes

                                                    I think his problem is with sweet relish from the bottle and canned black olives, which are both considered "low-brow." He's just being pretentious.
