And I said... HORS D'OEUVRRRRRRRRRES!!!
|—The Shame of the Name|
Tea Kettle is somewhat of a motherly figure to her team, helping during challenges. She's also rather sassy and not afraid to scold her team members for costing them the challenge.
Like Paintbrush, she seems to lose her temper quite easily, such as when somebody doesn't accept one of her gifts. When this happens, she turns red and steam comes from her spout.

Tea Kettle knows best! So stand up straight and wipe that schmutz off your face! And don’t question her or you’ll get a mouthful!... sometimes literally... of food! Tea Kettle cares fiercely about her teammates, whom she considers her family. But sometimes TK needs to let off steam if her rowdy family doesn’t listen to her - she’s got quite the temper! So don’t make her blow her lid! Mum’s the word.
