I see that the Food Network Channel is Premiering a New show on the August 11th called 'Cutthroat Kitchen'.
The tagline for this show is:
[QUOTE]Just how far is a chef willing to go to win a cooking competition?[/QUOTE]
with the following explanation:
Cutthroat Kitchen hands four chefs each $25,000 and the opportunity to spend that money on helping themselves or sabotaging their competitors. Ingredients will be thieved, utensils destroyed and valuable time on the clock lost when the chefs compete to cook delicious dishes while also having to outplot the competition
I might watch this show.. if only to see what probably goes on on OTHER reality shows that is almost never seen on TV-i.e. -edited out.
I have always thought something is going on on Hell's Kitchen. Too Many TIMES simple dishes are burned, over cooked, and I have always wondered if the Production Team or one of the other Cooks/Contestants goes around switching the temperature of the stoves/ovens. Even pulling off the knobs and putting them back on so it might look like it is on Medium, med/low and the heat is actually HIGH. (I have no idea if the production team can play with the gas going into the stoves-because THAT is really dangerous.).
I was so angry when On the 'Next Great Baker', the last one, you had that SNEAK, STAB IN THE BACK, contestant, GRETTLE ANN (sp?) who was sweet, and nice to most contestants, but subatoged the others by hiding pans, turning oven temps up and down, and when she had immunity, did crap work to try to make her team's cake lose. Then, she was pissed off beyond belief when she did not win! 'I was doing this not only for me, but for my 9 employees!' These 'baking' reality shows are supposed to be about the best, so when I see this, and suspect garbage on HK, I do not watch the next season. (Cake Boss's Buddy was laughing about GA-and the winner of the show got to work in his bakery! Lost the little respect I had for him.)
Anyhoo...If this is the premise of the show, then GREAT! As long as it is out in the open. Hope the contestants realize that everything one does, especially on TV, is part of their resume, whether they include it or not.
