Behind-the-scenes footage of Muppets annoying Padma: awesome

One of the many highlights of reality television this last week was the Muppets guest judging the quickfire challenge on Top Chef All Stars, and it was particularly entertaining to watch them get on Padma Lakshmi’s nerves.

Bravo has released behind-the-scenes footage as they adjust lighting and audio and Padma goes over her lines (from a script, which is interesting), and Cookie Monster keeps interrupting Padma as she practices. (Cookie Monster must be a fan of Gail Simmons.) Also really awesome is that, apparently, crew members with kids brought them to the set to see the Muppets in person.
