Anton Ego: Godfather and also the food critic from Ratatouille. Investigation immune, and night-time kill immune. Will decide who the Mafia’s target for assassination is.
*I am Anton Ego. I’m here apparently to witness wannabe chefs making a pathetic populist theater out of a sublime art. The art of combining the right ingredients in the right way, with a carefully and dedicated nurturing of the rare combination of artisanship, instinct, experience and a touch of genius. *
*We’re not talking about throwing a third rate hunk of meat into some overheated frying fat and boiling root vegetables to a mush, to just inhale it 20 min later and forget about it 5 seconds after that. *
That’s not cooking.
*We’re not talking about ooh-ing and ah-ing about a relatively simple sautéd shrimp while 15 cameras with filters follow an idiot around whose greatest merit is to be able to appeal to bored housewives wasting their lives looking at daytime tv by reflecting the lowest common denominator of their skill, or lack thereof. *
That’s not cooking.
I had enough of that. I joined this circus with one goal and one goal only. If no one will call this perversion to the divine process that true cooking is to a halt, burn it down with fire and parade the disgraceful wannabe chefs through the streets to tar and feather them, then I will. I will show no mercy. I will show you… cooking.
Jamie Oliver: mob roleblocker, can choose to roleblock a player every night phase. Cannot roleblock the same player two nights in a row.
Hi, I’m Jamie Oliver. I’m famous for making a great fuss about collecting ingredients and telling little stories about them and what you can do with them and how amazing it all is. Can you please instruct the camera crew to keep the camera on me at all times? Even if I’m an overweight Englishman with a 35 BMI that inspires anything but appetite, I insist. Since the show has to involve some actual cooking unfortunately I’ll make sure the dishes won’t take too much time, and to throw the ingredients I fawn over quickly together in mediocre dishes that require no skill to make and overload them with fat and salt, haha. Good stuff!
Nigella Lawson: mob cop, can choose to investigate a player 3 times over the course of the game.
Hi, I’m Nigella Lawson. I have two large assets, and cooking isn’t one of them, hahaha. Are we getting a good camera angle on my cleavage here? That’s about the main thing I’ll be bringing here. I’ll make sure to regularly slowly taste some chocolate sauce and dripping fruit bits too. Apart from smiling into the camera and saying nothing , that’s about it for me. Ta taa!
Wolfgang Puck: mob hitman, can choose to kill a player during any phase of the game. One time ability only.
Wolfgang Puck here. I’m an Austrian, born after WW2, and made my career in the States. I was married and divorced a couple of times; won a lot of awards and I like to show some muscle in the kitchen. But I really want to waste no time on this intro and get started. Let me get that cleaver and the that meat and to the cutting block, and … NO. IT IS TIME. LISTEN TO ME. GET TO THE CHOPPER!
Marco Pierre White: revenge killer, if lynched will take down the last person who voted for him.
Yes, I am Marco Pierre White. An intro? Haha, I need an intro? Are you fucking kidding me. See Ramsay over there? I trained him. I thought him his one trick; cursing like a heretic peasant who just hit his thumb with a hammer. That’s just the one thing he’s good at. I trained a lot of top notch chefs, but I’m the best there ever was. I was the youngest chef ever and the first British chef ever to be awarded three Michelin Stars. That’s how good I am. I’m not actually longer cooking, but I came on here to remind you there’s only one that’s the best, and that’s me. I’m basically the Manchester City of the cooking league. Go Citizens!
Paul Bocuse: no abilities
Je m’appelle Paul Bocuse. I am here to admit I am famous by accident. I feel the time is here to reveal my secret, how I became what I am. One time I was too hung over from drinking too much Picon to properly cook or go buy ingredients the next morning. So I threw some heated up leftover sauce hollandaise on one raw asparagus and served it to some people. I then called it a new way of cooking, not too opulent, une veritable nouvelle cuisine hon hon!. And I got away with it, hon hon hon. Millions of people bought in to this crap, parbleu!.
Julia Child: no abilities
Hi, my name is Julia, Julia Child, and I would like to show you some more on French cooking. It isn’t as easy as it looks like, which is why I would like to recommend my 1505 page cookbook, available now at… What’s that dear? No promotion? Oh. What a disappointment.Really not? No? Pity, but, I surrender. It doesn’t mean I will be unable to tell you all about all the best ways to really enjoy snails, garlic, pungent smelling cheese, frogs, foie gras, aubergines and the best fleur de sel! I also love to cook with wine. Ha, sometimes I even put it in the food.
Hannibal: investigation immune and night-time kill immune. Can choose to kill a player every night phase.
*Here’s mr H. Lecter, last minute participant! Mr. Lecter, take it away! *
Hannibal just stands there, staring into the camera, smiling. He doesn’t move, he doesn’t acknowledge the questions, he just smiles. His steady eery gaze instead brings the message: a terrible resolve, a promise of horrible and unspeakable acts.
