Food Network’s new competition series Kitchen Casino hosted by Bill Rancic and premiering on Monday, April 7th at 9pm ET/PT brings together four talented chefs in a high-stakes game of chance that requires skill, speed and adaptability. In each episode, four competitors would be wise to keep one eye on the ticking clock while they attempt to out-cook and out-smart their competition during three casino-themed cooking challenges – slots, poker and roulette – for a chance to win the $30,000 jackpot. The chefs must be at the top of their game throughout the three rounds to handle whatever Lady Luck deals them, and they must double-down on their skills or risk being 86’d. Each episode features a panel of rotating judges including Michael Chernow, Madison Cowan, Danyelle Freedman, Gavin Kaysen, Aliya Leekong and Kristin Sollenne.

Hosted by Tyler Florence, Food Court Wars pits two teams of aspiring food entrepreneurs against one another as they battle to win their own food court restaurant, rent-free for a year. Each week it’s a different U.S. city mall. The mall wants to open a brand-new “local” eatery in the food court that offers a fresh region-specific menu. Stakes are high as teams must test their concept, market their brand, and run their outlet for a full day feeding hungry shoppers. The team whose restaurant makes the most profit wins their eatery space – a prize worth $100,000! The losing team must vacate the premises.

Premiering Sunday, February 23rd at 8pm – “House of Doggs vs. Matts’ Beignets”

Host Tyler Florence heads to Traverse City, Michigan, where husband and wife, Nick and Autumn, combine their love of music with their fondness for food when they opened their rock-and-roll hot dog restaurant. With only seasonal business and a cursed location, they hope to expand their brand so Nick can quit his construction work and focus solely on their hot dog business. Best friends Matt and Matt not only share the same name, but also share a passion for beignets which they hope to transform into a broader, successful culinary concept. These two teams will face-off to prove that they have what it takes to win over the hungry residents of Traverse City, Mich.

Please check out the March 23rd Episode which features two successful neighborhood

In the two years they have been open they have received high praise from the local “foodie” scene. It’s time for this husband and wife team to take their brand to the next level and expose more people to Jonathon’s amazing food. Which team will emerge victorious with a chance to win their own local mall food court spot in Lewisville, Texas.

WORST COOKS IN AMERICA
Season Five (2014) – Episode 1

“It Just Got Worse”
In the season premiere, the fourteen recruits, each nominated by family and friends for their horrendous cooking skills, are selected by Anne Burrell and Bobby Flay to compete in a grueling six-week culinary boot camp. To demonstrate their skills (or lack thereof), the recruits are tasked with making their “signature dish,” displaying the best of their culinary skills at home. After a brutal first tasting, the chefs select their teams, and the recruit who makes the worst dish gets to choose which team he or she competes on throughout the competition. The recruits later walk into Boot Camp, and Anne and Bobby have them makeover one of their favorite foods—pizza! Anne’s team attempts Grilled Pizzetta with Ricotta, Sausage, Arugula and Chili Oil while Bobby’s team attempts Pizza with Parsley Pesto, Cremini Mushrooms, Fontina and Goat Cheese. In the end, only twelve recruits will make it to the next week of Boot Camp.
