DESCRIPTION:
(from NBC's press release, March 2015) It's the perfect recipe for the ultimate food battle when the best amateur cooks in America put their signature dishes to the test against five professional chefs in "Food Fighters," a high-stakes culinary game returning for season two. Television personality, author and food enthusiast Adam Richman ("Man Vs. Food," "Man Finds Food") hosts the series that takes culinary sparring to an exciting new level. In a series of compelling, tension-filled showdowns, a top-notch amateur home cook will face off one by one against five professional chefs from every corner of the world. In the final round, they'll compete against a celebrity chef. Armed only with recipes for their best signature dishes, they'll square off against an expert chef who will have to cook the same dish. The completed dishes will then be sampled in a blind taste test by culinary judges known as "The Dinner Party." After the two competing dishes are tested, the verdict determining the winner is given to the host. If the home cook wins, they earn a cash prize. Even if they don't win, they still get to face off again against another culinary expert, climbing a money ladder with increasing cash prizes for every professional chef they knock out. Any amateur cook who wins each of the five rounds will walk away with $100,000. It's the ultimate food fight, pitting amateur cooks against the most formidable culinary pros in America to see if they have what it takes to beat the very best. Ben Silverman, Chris Grant, Tim Puntillo and Laura Caraccioli are executive producers. "Food Fighters" is from Electus and Universal Television. "Food Fighters" delivered a 1.2 rating, 4 share in adults 18-49 and 4.7 million viewers overall from 8-9 p.m. ET in "live plus seven day" averages from Nielsen Media Research last summer. In its Tuesday 8-9 p.m. ET slot, "Food Fighters" ranked #1, tied for #1, #2 or tied for #2 among the Big 4 networks with each of its eight season-one telecasts ("live plus same day").
