I don't really know exactly what it is about this show, but it speaks to me. The best things humans do are a result of cooperative effort and the contestants and judges on this show seem to understand this innately. It's all about the food and making it what should be.

In short, it has heart, love and soul. If you want combat, watch UFC, if you want a show about the love of food, watch this.
