Show Summary

Hosted by Ted Allen, Chopped challenges four promising chefs to turn a selection of everyday ingredients into an extraordinary three-course meal. In each episode, four chefs compete. The show is divided into three rounds; in each round, the chefs are given a basket containing between three and five unrelated ingredients, and the dish each competitor prepares must contain all of these ingredients. The competitors are also given access to a pantry and refrigerator, which is stocked with a wide variety of other ingredients. Each round is times, and the chefs must cook their dishes and plate them before the time elapses.
After each round, a rotating round of culinary judges critique the dishes based on presentation, taste and creativity. The judges then decide which chef is "chopped," and that chef is eliminated from the competition. By the Dessert round, only two chefs remain. When deciding the winner, the judges consider not only the dessert course, but the entire meal presented by each chef as a whole. The winner of the competition receives prize money, usually in the amount of $10,000.

  • Fairness

    I think Chopped is one of the most racist shows I have seen. I was one of the biggest fans of the show and would argue with people in my home to be able to watch the show. However, after watching it continuously I am finding that minorities are very rarely selected for the Chopped Champion. I just watched an episode that absolutely blew my mind. A man made half of a banana as a banana split, and he was selected. His dessert was awful and it looked horrible and so did his other dishes however he was selected. One of the judges stated that the food was almost unbarely to eat because of the butter that he used to grill the banana however, he was chosen. How is that? After watching that episode I am now currently not a fan of Chopped anymore and will not watch it. I will also tell others how I feel about the show and try to persuade them to stop watching it as well.moreless
  • Chopped Impossible Finale

    James was robbed on this is the only one who had no faults and was cut..... the first time I feel the judges were bought on this
  • Chopped Impossible

    I absolutely LOVE Chopped. This Impossible challenge is about to make me call it quits! I get Irvine is supposed to be unbeatable, but he is such a JERK on these episodes!! I hope the final contestant wipes the floor with him!

    You need to do a gluten free episode!!!!!!!!!!!!! My husband has celiac disease and loves your show but would never be able to be on it because he wouldn't be able to try any of the food he'd cook. Please please please please please please please do a gluten free show(s). It's becoming more popular now because of the dietary reasons and trend of eating healthy. Please please please please!
  • Choppism

    This is one of the most "racism by omission" against African Americans show I've seen yet. The judges consistently allow blacks to compete and win until a black contestant gets to the final two, at this point an African American can clearly be winning on every category and its at this point that at least one judge, predominantly a white female trashes the black contestant. The rest is history, pure and blatant racism which is totally unacceptable and needs to be addressed. I believe in fairness not color. Clean it up now!moreless

    The anti-Emmys have rolled out their ballot and there are plenty of dark horses but also some expected snubs.
