Press Release

Food Network kicks off the summer Bobby Flay-style with brand-new seasons of hit primetime series “Bobby’s Triple Threat” and “BBQ Brawl.”

Network icon 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 Flay 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.

In the season three premiere on Tuesday, July 9 (9 p.m. ET/PT), legendary chef Marcus Samuelsson takes on the titans in a cooking match for the ages. Upcoming competitors over the 10-episode season include Eric Adjepong, Shirley Chung and Kevin Lee.

In “BBQ Brawl,” the competition returns to Texas where Flay is joined by Sunny Anderson and, for the first time, Michael Voltaggio, to coach a roster of the best pitmasters from across the country in high-stakes challenges to determine who will be named “Master of ‘Cue.” Each superstar chef leads their own team of competitors through 10 episodes of intense barbecue challenges where judges Carson Kressley, Rodney Scott and Brooke Williamson determine the most and least successful dishes. At the end of the 10-episode season, only one pitmaster is victorious and wins the “Master of ‘Cue” title and bragging rights for their coach.

BBQ Brawl’s fifth season begins Monday, July 8 (9 p.m. ET/PT).

“I’m always excited when summer rolls around,” Flay said. “It signals lots of outdoor cooking, firing up the charcoal and, this year, new seasons of ‘Triple Threat’ and ‘BBQ Brawl’!”

“Our viewers have been eagerly awaiting new episodes of ‘Bobby’s Triple Threat’ and ‘BBQ Brawl,’ and we are thrilled to give them action-packed seasons,” said Betsy Ayala, head of content, food, Warner Bros. Discovery. “With Bobby’s mentorship in ‘Triple Threat,’ his titans push food boundaries every week against worthy competitors. And nothing says summer like ‘BBQ Brawl,’ and this season’s hosts and pitmasters deliver unbelievable dishes, served with a side of good-natured trash talk.”
