Running on the premise of taking leftover food and completely reinventing them into a new meal is cool.
Personally I think the structure needs work, both rounds are essentially identical with the slight variation of all using the same ingredients in round 1, and all using the same THEMED ingredients in round 2. There's no real structure to judging. In shows like Nailed It, winning round 1 gives an advantage in round 2 where the overall winner is decided. In this they just do both rounds then call a winner. It's particularly flawed when one person does excellent in the first and another in the second, and they just pick one seemingly at random.
I wish there were stricter rules. Part of the fun of giving contestants weird ingredients is seeing them use it. In this they're given up to 4 different cooked dishes to start with, but they choose what they use and it's boring to see some people only using 1 of the ingredients and not really participating in the gimmick of the show, as well as certain weird dishes just get left out by every contestant. I'd rather see LESS ingredients that they MUST use, than a bunch of stuff that they can pick and choose from.
I don't think anyone needs Jackie Tohn-Deaf's singing at the end of each episode, nor intermittantly throughout, and her 'songwriting' might as well be done by a 5 year old. She's a pretty brash personality on a show like this. David So was pretty bland but at least he's willing to have a bit of a laugh at himself. Rosemary Shrager is the saving grace of the whole show.
