  • TV's best cooking competition is unquestionably Food Network's Iron Chef: America. Next Iron Chef is a reality based once-a-year tournament to select a new Iron Chef. It is light years better than Hell's Kitchen, MasterChef or Top Chef.moreless

    The chefs literally drew straws (or matches) and paired off into two-chef teams. Meat and Heat – cooking in the great outdoors. Spike got the magic match so he got to pair the teams.

    Chairman's challenge: Everyone on everyone. The chefs literally drew straws (or matches) and paired off into two-chef teams. Meat and Heat – cooking in the great outdoors. Spike got the magic match so he got to pair the teams.

    Sudden Death challenge: Pits the bottom two finishers each week in a loser leave town match. I love this. I have long said that they should ditch the conceived challenges and do a round-robin tournament in Kitchen Stadium. This is the closest as we will likely ever get. This time around there were two hidden secret ingredients that they chose between. One turned out to be canned tuna. The other was diver scallops.

    WINNERS: 1st challenge – Zakarian/McMillan. Sudden Death challenge – Mendelsohn vs. Samuelsson - WINNER: Samuelsson. Spike goes home.moreless
