    13. Acko Neri

      that level 2 seems like a former level 1 that got upgraded because Lorenzo had business

    14. Juan Faisal

      to name a sauce "queso cheese sauce" its a little bit redundant 11:42

    15. Pointillax

      When you need to be a chef to know that you don't have to drown food under 2L of diabetic sauce, you know you're in the US...

      Americans: I love the French for giving us fries. Belgians: *belgian sadness*

    20. Vedha Palla

      Honestly I think I'd like 1s fries more than fermented fries

    21. Michael Choe

      The level 2 chef seems worse than the level 1 chef

    22. Jessie G

      i still love mc d's fries

    23. Axola Batyi

      I'll take 2 servings of Bianca's.

    24. Plasma -

      Just go down to McDonald's

    25. Yohan Brad

      The Level 2 chef is going to be a star could tell she's aiming to be a professional 🤣

    26. just have fun

      the only things that goes well with french fries are ketchup mayo and sweet chili sauce

    27. just have fun

      fermented . hell no . rich people food is disgusting

    28. B o r p

      Once I was cooking fries but I decided to be lazy and I didn't dry off the fries so they still had water, only problem was I was cooking them in oil so I almost burned down our kitchen for the second time-

    29. Addison Gray

      Well now we all know more about fries then our friends. Lol Half of the video was her talking about French fries

    30. Stephanie Gould

      Bianca is annoying af.

    31. Kingpurest

      Trust me Bianca's reasoning wasn't pectin breakdown rate

    32. duby149

      I cant be the only that throws a bag of frozen in the oven with a shredded cheese and calls it a day lmaooooo

    33. Moha Mmd

      Video title be like: waste 13 mins & hate your own fries afterwards

    34. p0rt3r

      Chef: "Do you want fries with that?" Me: "Sure. I ordered them last week!" Chef: "My man!" Both: **bro-fist**

    35. B CH

      None of these looked very good, but I'd probably go with the Level 1 chef's fries. But give me some damn ketchup!

    36. Tach Lnk

      If Gordon Ramsay watches the video, he will be angry at the second chef for frozen French fries.

    37. Omer Zeevi

      Since when fries goes well with apples?? 🍎+🍟=🤮

    38. Syya Fire

      Oi the thumb nail is backwards

    39. Sike Vlogs

      Level 1’s looked the best 😂

    40. fabnsass

      I stick the cut and seasoned potatoes into the oven and that's it. I don't do the water thing or use litters of oil, a simple drip of oil with salt and pepper is good enough. Maybe add a pinch of garlic powder if you are feeling fancy, but that's it. Their sauces all scare me, just use salsa, ketchup and/or string cheese.

    41. Person A

      Me: I’ll have some fries for lunch please.. Chef: That’ll be ready in five days

    42. Amano Yuuji

    48. Cooking for the missus

    49. Isaac S

      That girl looks so uncomfortable

    50. Bagja Kertasafari

      may i know the level 4 girl's name?

    51. Elisa Idir

      Level 0: heat up oil, peel and slice up potatoes, add salt, throw them in oil, take them out, serve and eat.

    52. ding dOoOoOonG

    53. Wolf Blood
