MTV's First Reality Food Show Is 'Top Chef' Meets 'Real World'
We're surprised MTV waited until now to jump on the cooking bandwagon for reality TV. The network is premiering its first food-themed reality show, House of Food, on March 31.
Think food competition shows like Top Chef and MasterChef in a Real World setting. And get this: it all takes place in L.A.
It's everything you could expect from a show created from the reality TV-centric channel, including the dramatic voiceover tagline in the show's trailer: "Eight untrained cooks will live together, learn together, and compete to win their dream job."
These home cooks will be crashing with each other in a sweet L.A. pad and get trained by three L.A. chefs: The Tasting Kitchen's Casey Lane, Waterloo & City's Brendan Collins, and Hudson's House's Brooke Williamson, according to The Wrap.
The trailer, which the Hollywood Reporter first reported, promises lots of drama—including heated screaming from chefs (just like Gordon Ramsay!), pots being slammed, and chairs being pushed over.
And what does the winner get? An apprenticeship with a to-be-announced L.A. chef. That's it.
