    “For the lactose-slightly-intolerant?”
    “For the lactose definitely gonna kill himself one day.”
    If that’s not a mood, I don’t know what is.

    *Andrew* representing *house one* & *mounties* 🙌🙌. We *proud* of you bro, *keep* doing what you doing 😎😊.

  6. AwesomeMan says:

    Lol they didn’t like the last bagel at all.

    • Nathan Hevenstone says:

      Yeah it was so obvious they were scraping the barrel to find something nice to say. Although I think Andrew actually did like it, at least a bit, since his face basically matched what he was saying. But Steven… it was so obvious he hated it I was just like… bro… we can tell, man. Just admit it.

    • Kevin Pacheco Chavez says:

      AwesomeMan LOL waste of 1k

    • Celine Dakin says:

      Not a waste. The money went to a good cause! (Although, I think they probably got this bagel complimentary, as buzzfeed usually does.)

    *wait what*

  8. Jack Johnson says:

    That guy who hand rolls the bagels is magical!

  9. JJ's Life says:

    Sorry New York but best bagels in world are from Arnolds here in Finland.
    Use to love bagels in New York but nothing can beat an Arnolds bagel :-p

  10. Nathan Hevenstone says:

    OMG I’VE BEEN TO UTOPIA BAGELS! I’ve even had that everything bagels with the nova, cream cheese, tomato, onion, and capers! They are so damn good! I’ve had the Jerusalem Bagel from Bar Bolonat, as well. I like it a lot; it’s delicious. But nothing beats a classic everything bagel with lox and cream cheese.

    I was gonna crap on the $1000 bagel, but it’s for charity. But Steven… your face for that bagel… if you don’t like it, you can say that you don’t like it. It’s okay… we won’t be mad at you. Don’t force positivity when it’s false…

    • Claire Mind says:

      He probabyly could not say that he did not like it cos the chef was there. Hahah!

    • Nathan Hevenstone says:

      See to me that’s a problem. It does seem as if, in most of these videos, they really do genuinely enjoy everything they try, but in this one, the difference between Steven’s face and what he said was so so so stark… like… impossible to miss stark. I could tell he was trying not to make a face and he didn’t really go back for more.

      I feel like they should be a bit more honest if they didn’t like something. It’s perfectly possible to not like something and still be nice/complimentary about it while being honest (“that’s not really for me, to be honest, but I can see how this would be appealing to others”… as an example). But hey… that’s just me…

    • vanarP says:

      Nathan Hevenstone Yeah, I wish we could get genuine reactions, it really is just so much more fun to watch then it being staged. However, these restaurants might even be paying Buzzfeed for them to out them on this show, I mean, its really great publicity, The video got on trending as soon as it was released. But hopefully in the future we can see them enjoying themselves 😀

    • Nathan Hevenstone says:

      Yeah you do have a point. That’s probably how Buzzfeed pays for the really expensive ones, now… by telling the restaurants that they’ll use it as advertisements.

      On the flipside, I have to admit that I’d like to see a super expensive one turn out to be a worth it winner. I think the wagyu steak was the only Worth It winner so far, and I’m not even completely sure about that (it’d be my worth it winner because authentic Japanese A5 Miyazaki Wagyu is 100% worth it). They really need to do one where the expensive one is the worth it winner…

    jerusalem bagel! as an israeli jerusalem bagel was part of my childhood. visiting jerusalem was never complete without buying a few bagels at the street (super cheap LOL) and eat this while walking around and enjoy the city. i love zaatar with everything! especially with baked potatos!

  12. Bhavya Talwar says:

    According to me… If you can afford every expensive dish, then its worth it 😂

  13. Farheen Chaudhuri says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I find Andrew to be very hot. He’s a major reason why I watch this series

  14. Whitney Houston says:


  15. Whitney Houston says:

    i love how they all just share food now :)))

  16. Whitney Houston says:

    take something basic and add truffle and gold and bam it’s now expensive

    • Alejandro Serrano says:

      Whitney Houston That applies with everything tho. A plain bagel is $1. Order it with other topings and the price goes up

    • Nathan Hevenstone says:

      That seriously annoyed me, to be honest. They didn’t use any special ingredients for the bagel… I’m not even sure they made that bagel in house! I’d be understanding if they found like a rare kind of flour to make the bagel from, made it in house, and so on, and then made their own specialty cream cheese… then you get the truffle and jam and gold.

      But that bagel looked like it came out of a Lender’s bag, to be honest. Even with the truffle and gold, that was not worth $1000…

  17. Chelsea & Franz says:

    Love that the soup kitchen serves homemade food! 🧡

  18. Mocro Mc5 says:

    Never clicked a video so fast

  19. Lee Olsson says:

    One of my favorite things about this show is listening to the professionals so passionately talking about the food they’re making. Like it’s the most beautiful thing they know.

  20. Brynley Louise says:

    I NEED to try that Jerusalem bagel.

    • Idk. says:

      Brynley Louise its good im from Jerusalem and eat that everyday

    • Nathan Hevenstone says:

      It’s really good, but it’s the olive oil and zaatar that really kick it up a notch. I definitely recommend it. In fact, I highly recommend that one and the Utopia Bagels one. Both are just incredible.

    • Brynley Louise says:

      Idk. It looks so good!

    • Brynley Louise says:

      Nathan Hevenstone yeah that olive oil and zaatar are what make it looks so amazing, especially since it isn’t a spice I’ve had before, so I’d be really interested to try it.
