Months ago I lamented the departure of Top Chef Cheftestant and Hati survivor Ron Duprat, he of the red Crocs. We were going to miss his jolly laugh, his trouble understanding the meaning of words like “vice” and “deconstructed,” and his revolting cocktails. But most of all we were going to miss his plastic footwear, the fire truck red slip-ons that made him stand out from the rest.
It was then, with great pleasure, that I realized it appears that perennial challenge finalist and lover of all things pork Kevin Gillespie has been sporting his own pair of Crocs this whole time, albeit a much a less fashionable black set. Looking back, it was very hard to pick this up, as they just as easily could have been confused for a pair of black boots. But if you know what you’re looking for then you can (sorta) make out the Crocs, like in this picture from the Penn & Teller episode.
