What Did The Big Bang Theory Production Crew Do With Leftovers Eaten By The Cast During Scenes?

Fans are still learning new information about The Big Bang Theory. The series had a sneak way of using numbers, though things didn't always align properly, like Sheldon's changing relationship with cats.

Despite some plot hiccups, . In this article, we'll take a look at the lighter side, examining what goes on with the food that the cast is typically eating during takes on the show.

Fake Eating Scenes Were Extremely Common During The Big Bang Theory

Throughout the duration of the series, we saw several scenes of the cast eating, whether it be at Penny's apartment, Leonard and Sheldon's place, the or even at the cafeteria.

Alongside Raj even issued some tips on , "Nayyar even demonstrated (via ) some of the techniques they use while filming an eating scene on . One of his tips included putting the food back into the containers after fake chewing."

According to a fan on , . Something like rice, which was often on the show, is easy to get rid of between takes, showing the characters are actually consuming the food. "That’s why they eat a lot of Chinese food and salads. They can move food around with their forks (or chopsticks) and never actually ingest or remove any, allowing faster movement from take to take."

"You don’t see them eating a lot (if any) hamburgers (the most common meal in America). If an actor took a bite out of a hamburger in one take of the scene, they would need to do it again in every take because footage from multiple takes of a long scene can be edited together."

Most of the cast kept the matter quiet, however, Penny went a little more in depth via

Kaley Cuoco Revealed That She Would Actually Eat Her Lunch During The Takes

Kaley Cuoco revealed some interesting information via IG back in the fall of 2018. According to the actress who portrays the role of Penny, not only was the food very much real, but when she knew there was an eating scene, Cuoco would eat less during the day.

In this particular behind the scenes clip, she's shown actually eating at the end of take. She stated, "If you ever wanted to know what happens during our ‘dinner’ scenes, here are two videos that show the before and after . I always forgo lunch if I know we are shooting an eating scene like this one lol when you watch TONIGHT’s all new @bigbangtheory_cbs episode, you will know I was quite satisfied. Notice our crew cleaning up the props and throwing things away. The cast is moving on with their day. The scene is done. I’m wrapped. Time to go home."

Fans enjoyed the unique behind the scenes visual, however, they took exception to the amount of food that wasn't consumed, starting an entirely different problem in itself.

The Massive Amount Of Leftover That Went Untouched Were Donated

Fans really don't miss much and in the comments section of the clip, Cuoco's followers weren't exactly thrilled with all the food that wasn't consumed and for the garbage. The backlash caused Cuoco to edit the post, stating that the leftovers weren't thrown away and instead donated, particularly the food that was untouched.

"FYI that food had been eaten, touched and worked with all day. We save all food and give away all uneaten leftovers at the end of shoot days."

Cuoco really didn't need to address that matter, but it just goes to show how much she cares, especially about the sitcom. In truth, Cuoco wasn't ready to let go at the time and still, she talks about the possibility of a reboot in the future. Hopefully, if one is to take place, we'll have more eating scenes!
