Five-Episode Primetime Tournament Begins
Wednesday, September 28th at 10pm ET/PT

Trick or treating takes on a new meaning this fall with the five-episode primetime event Cutthroat Kitchen: Tournament of Terror, which begins Wednesday, September 28th at 10pm ET/PT on Food Network. Cutthroat Kitchen, probably THE best food related game show on television, hosted by Alton Brown, who presides over three no-holds-barred heats per show.  A gaggle (is a group of chefs a gaggle or bunch?) of sixteen crafty chefs cook their way through spooky, twisted and just plain evilicious sabotages for the chance to win up to $50,000.

Sabotages for the tournament range from a spider web-themed spider roll challenge to a liver and fava beans battle, with competitors scaring up their best dishes while braving witches, mummies, ghosts and zombies. The heats lead up to a final showdown between each of the winners from the four previous shows to determine the Tournament of Terror champion on Wednesday, October 26th at 10pm.

Alton’s wicked sense of humor and diabolical sabotages are sure to get viewers into the Halloween spirit,” said Didi O’Hearn, Senior Vice President, Programming, Food Network and Cooking Channel. “Get ready for a devilishly good time, Cutthroat Kitchen-style!
