Beat Bobby Flay: Holiday Throwdown, a special six episodes of the long-running show, offers quite a few welcome surprises as it brings Food Network stars into an expanded Beat Bobby Flay format.
Carla Hall is a judge and host on Food Network’s fall competitions from September through December—Holiday Baking Championship, Halloween Baking Championship, and now Gingerbread Showdown—and it’s the best time of year, because she’s the best.
I interviewed Alex Guarnaschelli about Food Network’s Alex vs. America, and we talked about her competitiveness, the way the show breaks the fourth wall, and much more.
In today’s edition of Ask Andy, two questions about Food Network shows: How to apply for Holiday Baking Championship, Halloween Baking Championship, Spring Baking Championship, or Kids Baking Championship; and why The Great Food Truck Race isn’t moving around the country any more.
Guy Fieri’s advertisement for his new chain Chicken Guy was a big clucking mess of a reality competition, and didn’t do so well as an infomercial, either.
Food Network has renewed Alex vs. American for season 2. I asked her about what she expects from competitors in season two, and she also shared how she got her start judging cooking—at age 7!
Guy’s Chance of a Lifetime is a good idea but missing everything that makes Guy Fieri’s other Food Network shows great. If you hate-watched Bethenny’s Apprentice, this is the perfect reality show for you.
