Food Network's Extreme Chef: Like Top Chef With Snakes (Video)
Although we love Top Chef here at Clean Plate Charlie, sometimes we can't help wondering if maybe the show would be a little bit better if the cheftestants had to, say, catch their own poisonous water moccasin and cook it in the desert with only a book of matches and a sheet of aluminum foil.
Apparently, Food Network has heard our prayers. Extreme Chef, premiering this Thursday, June 30, at 10 p.m., takes the Survivor-meets-Top Chef concept and manages to up the ante.
During each episode, three chefs will compete for a $10,000 prize by completing challenges like cooking a meal by the heat of a car engine, swimming across raging rapids for ingredients, and navigating a pail of live rattlesnakes (yes!) for a spatula.
Don't know about you, but we will be watching (right after we go out to the Everglades to wrestle an alligator for dinner).
