DESTINATION AMERICA'S NEWEST FOOD COMPETITION SERIES, "LAST CALL FOOD BRAWL" IS THREE SHEETS TO THE WIN!

-- New Series Hosted By Chef and Food Enthusiast Adam Gertler Premieres Monday, June 10 at 10 PM E/P --

(Silver Spring, MD) - It's the perfect recipe for a night cap: one part hungry bar-goers, two parts finger-lickin' food, a dash of great everyday cooks, with a Golden Fry Basket to garnish. It all adds up to a mouth-watering plateful of Destination America's newest competition series, LAST CALL FOOD BRAWL, hosted by Adam Gertler, a runner-up for Next Food Network Star and all-around food enthusiast. Each episode visits a different American city to challenge four cooks, hailing from 24-hour diners to mom and pop eateries, in a cook-off to determine who will be crowned the king or queen of late night bites. The food brawls attract a raucous audience hungry for munchies that are salty and sweet, like deep fried bacon chili cheeseburger and peanut butter s'more french toast. LAST CALL FOOD BRAWL heads to some of the biggest late night cities in the U.S. to indulge in each town's local flavor, including New Orleans, Austin, Memphis, Nashville and Atlanta. Each week, only one contestant will win the coveted Golden Fry Basket!

"There's nothing better than hanging out with friends and wishing the night would never end... then keeping the fun going at your favorite late night food stop for a gooey grilled cheese, and maybe a side of disco fries." said, Marc Etkind, SVP of Content Strategy for Destination America. "With LAST CALL FOOD BRAWL, our intrepid host Adam Gertler is on a mission to find talented everyday deep fry warriors in the most fun-filled cities to serve up the best in late night and comfort food --taken to epic proportions."

The line-up of episodes for LAST CALL FOOD BRAWL is as follows:

NEW ORLEANS: PO' BOYS AND BURGERS Premieres Monday, June 10 at 10 PM E/P

Adam makes his way to the Big Easy where he's gathered four of the Crescent City's best late night cooks: the po'boy king; the self-made BBQ master; the kitchen diva, and the easy-going family man. Round one will have each contestant battling it out in a "Po'boy Insanos" challenge, which will be followed by a mind-blowing, epic Burger Challenge.

AUSTIN: TACOS AND BURRITOS Premieres Monday, June 17 at 10 PM E/P

In the Lone Star State capitol of Austin, Texas, the queen of fried chicken; a young and ambitious food truck owner; a trained culinary chef and a lovable teddy bear from a 24 hour diner are ready to battle for the Golden Fry Basket. They will square off for the first round challenge, "Tacos Insanos," making the most over-the-top tacos the city has ever seen. And the main challenge will have the chefs creating an epic Tex-Mex dish befitting the state where everything's bigger.

MEMPHIS: RIBS AND NACHOS Premieres Monday, June 24 at 10 PM E/P

And this week's line up of competitors features a veteran pit master/restaurant owner; the football player turned late night chef; the underdog who worked his way up the line; and the young hot shot with plenty of attitude. The first round has them making cheesy, piled-high nachos that live up to the "Insanos" challenge, while the final and main challenge will see who can take the classic Memphis favorite --BBQ - and blow away the judges with their creation.
