Food Network's new competition series Kitchen Casino hosted by Bill Rancic and premiering on Monday, April 7th at 9pm ET/PT brings together four talented chefs in a high-stakes game of chance that requires skill, speed and adaptability. In each episode, four competitors would be wise to keep one eye on the ticking clock while they attempt to out-cook and out-smart their competition during three casino-themed cooking challenges - slots, poker and roulette - for a chance to win the $30,000 jackpot. The chefs must be at the top of their game throughout the three rounds to handle whatever Lady Luck deals them, and they must double-down on their skills or risk being 86'd. Each episode features a panel of rotating judges including Michael Chernow, Madison Cowan, Danyelle Freedman, Gavin Kaysen, Aliya Leekong and Kristin Sollenne. (Source: Food Network)
In round one, four chefs need all the luck they can get when the slot machine lands on coconut, Greek and backyard barbecue. In chef roulette, the three remaining chefs must make a bass their own. In the final round, the two remaining chefs gamble with strange dairy and exotic fruit in hopes of going to the winner's wheel for a $30,000 spin.
