GSN Seeking Real People For Cooking Competition

If you're a "real person" that loves to cook, GSN is looking for you. 

Their new show, Beat the Chefs, is seeking amateur chef teams consisting of a lead and two sous chefs to compete against "some of the best chefs in the business", specifically Beau McMillan, executive chef of Elements at The Sanctuary Resort in Arizona; Top Chef contestant Antonia Lofaso; and Chris Henderson, author of the New York Times bestseller, Cooked.

Of course, there's no television cooking show without celebrity judges and Beat The Chef has tapped Eric Roberts; Melissa Rycroft; and Julie Powell of Julie and Julia fame, to name a few.

Winning chefs take home $25,000 to share with their team.
