My husband and I love to watch the Food Network together and there are always great cooking shows on for us to watch. We enjoy seeing hosts travel to far off lands to eat exotic foods, cook mainstream favorites in their own kitchen, and compete against each other in a brutal cooking competition. One of our favorite TV food personalities has always been Alton Brown. We even have a few cookbooks of his and they have some great recipes in them! Last year, Alton Brown came out with a new show called Cutthroat Kitchen that is part cooking show, part reality TV.

Cutthroat Kitchen: Superstar Sabotage Tournament
Basically, in each episode of Cutthroat Kitchen, the chefs are faced with three cooking challenges. Each challenge offers the chefs a type of dish to create but they are expected to turn that dish into a masterpiece within 30 minutes. They get only one minute to grab all of the ingredients they may need from the kitchen pantry and then the competition begins! The twist? There are “auctions” in the show where they can purchase opportunities to sabotage each other or benefit themselves. Each chef is given $25,000 at the start of the show and the winner keeps whatever money he/she has not spent in the auctions. Yes, you can PAY to sabotage the competition in this show! Very cutthroat, indeed!
This season, Cutthroat Kitchen is changing things up a bit! There will be sixteen elite chefs competing in the five-episode mayhem-filled Cutthroat Kitchen: Superstar Sabotage tournament under the watchful eye of host Alton Brown. Only the craftiest and most cunning chefs survive in this battle of cooking chops and sabotage skills, and just one wins ultimate bragging rights and up to $75,000 for the charity of their choice. After each episode, viewers can visit Cutthroat Kitchen for Alton’s insider take on the week’s sabotages in Alton’s After Show, along with exclusive behind the scenes photos from the competition.
TUNE IN TO WATCH! The primetime event kicks off Wednesday, October 8th at 9pm ET/PT with the first all-star match-up, leading up to a final showdown between the four heat winners on Wednesday, November 5th at 9pm ET/PT, where the grand prize is awarded.
