The Taste: Appetizing but average
THE TASTE has a very unique premise for a reality competition show, judging contestants' food just by one blind spoonful, and this is key to distinguish it from the modern cooking competition zeitgeist. However, despite the show being appetizing to watch, it is peppered by lots of elements that you've likely seen before on a cooking competition. Lots of swearing and iffy wording (especially from judge Anthony Bourdain), a boringly linear plot, and so on. THE TASTE is definitely one to savor in terms of food & flavor, but not even its tons of endorsements or its attractive women can bring out more to the show than what it offers.
