It’s a good thing Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is a millionaire, because it turns out the Fortnite pro can’t make a sandwich. The Twitch-turned-Mixer streamer recently appeared on an episode of Back to Back Chef and the disaster that is his attempt to make a butty is one of the best things I’ve seen this year. (PSA: “Butty” is British for “sandwich.”)
The 28-year-old appeared on the YouTube series as a special guest, alongside food director and chef Carla Lalli Music. If you’ve never seen the show, it essentially sees her teach celebrities how to cook by giving only oral instructions.
The sarnie Ninja was challenged to make was a bit more than your basic Marmite on toast to be fair. The meal involved slicing bread, cutting a hole into the slices, frying an egg in the hole, making a spicy mayo and adding bacon, avocado and cheese. Still, it’s nothing that someone who can use a knife should struggle with.
Enter Ninja, who apparently believes that the way to slice bread is HORIZONTALLY. Like, I get never having cooked before, but surely at some point in his life Ninja has seen a piece of bread?!
I’m not going to spoilt the rest for you because it’s a delight to watch Ninja flounder in the unfamiliar territory that is the kitchen. Check it out in all its glory below.
In the comments of the video, people are loving Ninja’s sandwich-making skills almost as much as I am. One user commented: “Carla is a better woman than any of us will ever be for not mocking his bread.”
Another added: “cuts the bread horizontally then cuts the avocado vertically then cuts orange top to bottom 🤔 duude 😟”
Better luck next time, Ninja!
