It’s no shock that I love cooking competition shows, so obviously I’m looking forward to Food Network’s latest, Ultimate Summer Cook-Off. Six talented chefs – from a chef with a restaurant on the beach to a seafood master to a chef from Hawaii, & more – will compete in two rounds of summer culinary heats each week. Whoever wins the first round will earn a key advantage during round two. Eddie Jackson hosts, while Damaris Phillips and Jamika Pessoa (all three we originally met on Food Network Star over the seasons) are the main judges, joined each week by a roster of special guest judges, including Mark Anderson & Ryan Fey, Susie Bulloch, Lazarus Lynch, Courtney Rada, & pitmaster Cameron True. Food Network fans will likely recognize at least a few of those names. In the end, the winner earns a $25,000 grand prize.

Eddie Jackson makes a great host, and Damaris Phillips especially is a ton of fun. My favorite of the guest judges are Mark Anderson & Ryan Fey, the Grill Dads, who we first met on Guy’s Big Project, which was like a smaller, slightly different version of Food Network Star. They’re really funny and should make for great judges. So I’m really looking forward to tonight’s premiere.

On tonight’s episode, “All-American Party,” host Eddie Jackson welcomes six spectacular chefs to the summer house for the ultimate all-American showdown. First up is the best backyard burger. Round two features another quintessential American summer food – hot dogs! In the end, the judges will send one chef home for the summer, while the rest continue on in pursuit of the $25,000 grand prize.

Don’t miss the premiere tonight on Food Network at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Celebrity Family Feud, The $100,000 Pyramid, Food Network Star, Private Eyes, Beat Bobby Flay, & To Tell the Truth.
