Funtertainment: Kristen Kish Breaks Down a Lobster With Nothing But Her Hands

Warning: This video is not suited for people who don’t prefer to watch the killing of an arthropod.

Because, well, bad@$$ chef Kristin Kish (winner of Top Chef: Season 10) breaks down a live lobster with her bare hands. Let me repeat that again: BARE HANDS.

From the look of it, she might as well be de-shelling a freaking peanut and not a living, breathing invertebrate with scary pinchers.

At one point, after she’s ripped the lobster’s head off, Zagat’s Chris Walsh asks, “Is it still moving?”

“Just barely,” she replies.

The takeaway? Don’t mess with Kish.
