I typically love the show despite the judging being totally rigged! I mean who cares? But what I absolutely dislike is when the so called “celebrity chefs” play for charity and Justin Werner plays for baby infanticide planned parenthood! It’s sick!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (19 ):
Kids say (1 ):

From offering an interpretation of spaghetti and meatballs without pasta or beef to creating a meal for four on a $6.35 budget, the series shows how chefs of all levels work with everyday ingredients and in a limited time frame to cook and adapt recipes to create tasty meals. But most of the show's focus is on the competition itself, which serves up a lot of humorous moments.

Die-hard foodies may not find a lot here to sink their teeth into, but folks looking to find new ways of approaching food shopping and cooking may find some interesting tips. Some may be inspired to try new ingredients and adapt their own recipes, too. But viewers of all ages who like food-themed shows will definitely find it worth watching.
