Storyline

"Around the World in 80 Plates" is television show on Bravo which combines elements of "Top Chef" with "The Amazing Race" where 12 chef contestants travel the world competing in "Race"-like challenges as well as taking over restaurants and serving local diners a la "Top Chef". In each episode a different international location is featured including Hong Kong, London, Tuscany and Barcelona, and contestants will need to learn each location's culture, customs and cuisine to prepare a dinner service for the locals in which the diners decide the winner of each show's competition. The challenge winner gets immunity on the next episode while chefs are eliminated by their fellow contestants, similar to "Survivor". Ultimately the winner of each season takes home US$150,000 and a new car. Written by James Teen

Pointless
4 July 2012 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

I saw one show. There were three teams assembled to do stupid tricks, like shaving five pounds of white meat from dozens of coconuts, after they walked a mile carrying them. Later they ran a few miles to a rice paddy, and planted 20 rows of rice. Then they ran to a temple area, and met the show directors and talked about how pretty the location is.

Of the three teams, it seems like people had some bad attitudes about who they were teamed up with. Avery Pursell did absolutely nothing, while her partner Lisa was the one carrying all the coconuts and shaving them.

Meanwhile, everyone was badmouthing Lisa, because she was an average looking, slightly overweight lady, and her partner on the team, Avery, thinks she is the hottie. I thought this was one of the worst reality or competition shows that I have ever seen.

I never got to see them cooking any interesting meals, or to see if there was any point to their activities. It seems like a pointless waste of time.
