Nine semifinalists will travel to NYC to cook on "LIVE"
"LIVE with Kelly and Michael" hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan have announced a new summer cooking series, "LIVE's Search for America's New Grill Star." "LIVE" is looking for a cook who is an undiscovered grilling sensation.
To apply, candidates must submit a 30-second video detailing why they have what it takes to be "America's New Grill Star," along with a recipe for their signature dish. Judging will be based on personality, creativity, passion for grilling and recipe.
From this pool of entries, nine semifinalists will be selected. They'll travel to New York City to demonstrate their culinary talents on-air, one at a time, beginning May 29 and continuing through June and July. On Aug. 14, two finalists will go head-to-head in front of a panel of judges and vie for the title of "America's New Grill Star."
"LIVE" has partnered with Bush's Beans for "LIVE's Search for America's New Grill Star." The grand prizewinner will take home a check for $10,000 and showcase his grilling expertise in five webisodes that will premiere on the "LIVE" website and AOL.com. The runner up won't leave empty-handed, walking away with a $2,500 cash prize. And each semifinalist will receive a Bush's Beans prize pack. Plus, several standout entries will be featured on AOL.com throughout the summer.
The deadline for submissions is July 23. For more information or to enter, visit www.LiveKellyandMichael.com.
