This is so rigged
14 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I guess the idea is kind of interesting. Format is very similar to Chopped but it's less of an actual cooking show then chopped and since it's food network, I would say chopped is better. YES execution is way off. It's more of a mystery then a cooking show and they just want the viewer's curiosity to stay tuned to find out who's who. But it's so rigged. They purposely make some contestants sound so professional and you can tell the makeup artist changes the appearance of certain contestants. They prescreen the contestants so they have to have both looks (con and pro). Too much editing, I just don't think this should be on food network.
