    The Great Domestic Showdown - ABC, 05/25 and 05/26

    "THE GREAT DOMESTIC SHOWDOWN," THE SEARCH FOR AMERICA'S NEXT DOMESTIC DIVA, COMES TO THE ABC TELEVISION NETWORK IN A TWO-HOUR, TWO-NIGHT SPECIAL TO AIR MAY 25 & 26

    Winner to Receive a Publishing Deal, a National TV Appearance And a Chance to Get His or Her Own TV Show!

    Adam Carolla to Host


    Sure there are lots of people who claim to be able to create a family dinner with only three ingredients in the cupboard, or who say they can cheerfully host a cocktail party for 50 after spending the day retiling their bathroom. These people possess the certain belief that they run their homes, entertain, decorate and garden... well, better than you. But can they prove it? They are certainly going to try, as the ABC Television Network presents "The Great Domestic Showdown," a nail-biting two-hour competition spanning two nights that will determine who really does it all best. "The Great Domestic Showdown" airs TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY, MAY, 25 & 26 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET, both evenings).

    Hosted by TV and radio personality Adam Carolla, "The Great Domestic Showdown" will have six contestants prove their skills in six categories: decorating, cooking, gardening, entertaining, home improvement and the final challenge for a splendid gala event. While many may be surprised to see a creator of "The Man Show" and "Crank Yankers" hosting this domestic competition, Carolla feels differently. He formerly made his living as a carpenter and secretly loves to design homes. "I see this as my coming out party," he said. "Not in a gay way, but I certainly wouldn't call it straight."

    Judging the intense competition are Sandra Lee, host of the Food Network's "Semi-Homemade;" Robert Verdi, host of Discovery Channel's "Surprise by Design;" and Govind Armstrong, one of LA's top chefs, with the Hollywood elite flocking to his latest restaurant, Table 8. These three celebrity judges will be looking for originality, creativity, resourcefulness and ability to stay within the rules. And each challenge will have surprises that show whether a contestant will fall like a soufflé or shine like a mirror cleaned with the perfect non-toxic mix of vinegar and water. Failure results in elimination.

    Contestants have been culled from the worlds of event planning and come from across the country. And they are competing for their dream -- the person who wins the domestic crown will win the ability to share his or her vision of how things should be done through a deal with Hyperion Books, an appearance on "Good Morning America" and a pilot deal for a television show of his or her own.

    "For these competitors, the stakes couldn't be higher," said Andrea Wong, senior vice president, Alternative Series and Specials, ABC Entertainment. "And the viewer is going to see great drama and emotion, plus get some great taste and design tips."

    "The Great Domestic Showdown" comes from feature film producer Barry Josephson, executive producer Mindy Moore and executive producer John Saade in association with Diplomatic Television.

    Sounds good, but couldn't they have pick someone more qualified to host than Adam Carolla?
