  5. lmao i love the way he says vegetables SHDSHDGSHSD and how he's so done with Ellen like "alright… okay…" 3:30 but inside he's like i have no time for this shit

  6. I love Wolfgang but the way he cooked pad thai is offensive to a Thai. So many things wrong. If he is gonna use vegetables and sauce that aren't even Thai, just call it Chinese style noodle dish!

  7. 5:26 "I brought you some water" lol did Wolfgang just troll Ellen? Lol as a chef he must know that water makes it worse lol.
