      @Cassie S I want to speculate that the oils from the cheese would get everywhere but thats not possible... im also stumped hope someone can explain as well

      Eden J that’s what I found on google. The context is that they had to fog the kitchen in the middle of the vid/covered up the appliances with trash bags. I wonder if they were fumigating? To make sure the kitchen stays bug free? Would you even get bugs so high up though? Idk I’m stupid

      @Cassie S Usually FOG means Fats Oil and Grease but in which context?

              Use mm, like normal people all over the World do, and many of your calculation problems will be history (where the inch system should be sent to)

                                              lets face it--the whole point of these shows is for claire to encounter one aggravating setback following another that she eventually overcomes to prove what type heart is required to make a champion

I've never seen any information or press releases to support my theory, like Kraft did with their Macaroni & Cheese a few years back. Anyone?
