Trying to fall asleep last night to get up early for my flight this morning (hello, Maryland/D.C.) I was lingering on the Food Channel and found a hilarious new show, Chopped. Notable qualities:
- Ted Allen, of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy fame.
- Iron Chef-like aspects: secret mandatory ingredients, timed cooking, amateur chefs
- Contestants obviously picked more for their personalities than for their (in some cases valid) prowess in the kitchen…
Proving, once again that I am a sucker for anything remotely reality-TV-like. I’m not saying I’ll be a regular viewer of this show, but for the two hours I needed to drift into drowsiness, it did the trick!
