Food Network icon Bobby Flay is a culinary master who has been competing at the highest level for years and, in “Bobby’s Triple Threat,” he has handpicked a trio of top-notch chefs to represent him as the next generation of culinary titans. Each episode is hosted by Bobby from his speakeasy-style kitchen, where titans Tiffany Derry, Michael Voltaggio and Brooke Williamson take on highly skilled competitors in three head-to-head cooking rounds with surprise featured ingredients for a chance to win $25,000.
This season, the chefs entering the competition are legendary, including Bobby’s friends and fellow “Iron Chefs” Michael Symon and Jose Garces, and “Chopped” judge Scott Conant.
“Bobby’s Triple Threat” season two premieres Tuesday, Aug. 22 (9 p.m. ET/PT), on Food Network.
“Season one of ‘Triple Threat’ was just a warmup,” Flay said. “In season two, I welcome 10 of the best chefs in the country to take on the titans. The challengers walk through the speakeasy door with the utmost confidence – but will they walk out with the same swagger and $25,000? Not if my chefs have anything to say about it.”
In each episode, one top-notch chef enters Bobby’s secret kitchen armed with extraordinary culinary skills and determination to take on Bobby’s three titans: Tiffany, Michael and Brooke, one round each. In the first two rounds, Bobby selects the main ingredients while the visiting competitor picks which titan to go up against. The last round features the competitor picking the ingredients to incorporate, while going against the last remaining titan. All the while, one discerning guest judge blind tastes and scores each dish.
If the competitor can out-cook the titans and earn more points than their cumulative score, they take home bragging rights and a $25,000 cash prize. In addition to the aforementioned chefs, this season’s competitors include Kelsey Bernard Clark, Esther Choi, Kelvin Fernandez, Byron Gomez, Rashida Holmes, Mei Lin and Shota Nakajima.
“The level of chefs competing in this season of ‘Bobby’s Triple Threat’ is extraordinary – they are truly the best of the best, making these some of the toughest battles we’ve ever seen,” said Betsy Ayala, head of content, food, Warner Bros. Discovery. “Bobby is all-in for his titans and believes they have what it takes to beat any great chef, even if that great chef is one of his best friends.”
