In the Office season 5 episode 26 in the cold open Kevin makes a big pot of chili and spills it all on the office floor when bringing it in.
Is it real chili? I am wondering if there is any episode commentary confirming if they actually made a huge pot of chili to spill or if it was a prop of some kind of fake chili?
This is more just a curiosity about the behind the scenes of this scene. Because theoretically they must've have to gotten it in one take or as few takes as possible since Kevin spills the chili right on the carpet floor and that would involve having to rip out the carpet if he broke and started laughing or anything mid-take. And the pot of chili is huge so I wonder how much actual chili they must've used for this shot.
Does anyone have any background information on this scene? Thanks!
