Go Behind the Scenes of Cutthroat Kitchen with Host Alton Brown

by in Shows, August 9th, 2013

Cutthroat KitchenFood Network’s new series Cutthroat Kitchen is turning the average culinary competition show on its head by adding the element of a game — one that includes sabotage, scheming and backstabbing. The way it works: Each of four competitors is given $25,000 to start with — money that can either be kept as a potential prize or used toward sabotage and the purchase of items/challenges in an auction helmed by host Alton Brown. But the game is not necessarily won by the most cunning competitor. In the end the best-tasting dish wins the chef his or her prize — whatever is left of it!

In this video from E! Online, watch host Alton Brown give viewers a tour of the Cutthroat Kitchen set, starting in the pantry, where the chefs have only 60 seconds to gather the items they plan to cook with. Then he shows off his dumbwaiter, which carries up the auction items. And of course there’s the briefcase full of money!

Watch the premiere of Cutthroat Kitchen on Sunday, August 11 at 10pm/9c.

    If you think for a moment chef should be able to adapt to any situation, needless to say it is fun to see what ideas these chef's come with. My husband and I love and enjoy the show. I do agree with some of the other post that Alton is becoming an arrogant person. I used to enjoy watching him in his show way back so many years ago and he wasn't an arrogant. What a shame…

    If you like and enjoy this show, I'm affraid it says more about your values and moral compass than you might want others to know. Anyone who enjoys this show is a sadist and obviously enjoys watching people treat each other very poorly. Lighten up? Really? I'm not sure who's the most pathetic, people who watch it more than twice, the contestants, the food network, or Alton Brown. If you can watch more than two of these, well, you have some seriously unresolved issues. The death spiral of the food network has begun, and it ain't pretty. Alton Brown's obituary can't be far behind.

    I think cutt throat kitchen is awesome. Great idea and Alton Brown is perfect for it. I would like to be a guest judge one day as a viewer appreciation kinda thing. I have a very intuned palate and enjoy cooking myself.
    Really in joy watching

    I love this show! It's not about learning the basics of cooking. It's a challenge and entertainment show. The "backstabbing" is all in fun and Alton is perfect. It's a "role" he's playing! Lighten up folks. If you don't like the show, don't watch it.
