Genre: Reality, Cooking
Premise: ``Cutthroat Kitchen'' isn't a typical cooking competition. A player, in addition to being a good chef, must be able to outwit and, at times, sabotage opponents in order to win. Each episode features four people vying in three rounds to win up to $25,000 cash. At the beginning, $100,000 is split evenly among the players to spend however they wish during the game. The chefs spend the money at auctions to get things that could help them -- like buying exclusive use of salt -- or hinder their opponents -- like prohibiting them from tasting a recipe in progress. Each round eliminates one chef, until there is a winner. Although the competitors want to make purchases at auction to improve chances of winning, none wants to spend too much; the amount remaining in the winner's bank determines the ultimate prize. Alton Brown hosts.
Two chefs roll around in a rickshaw while they make green papaya salad; one chef has to ride a mechanical bull while making a barbecue bacon cheeseburger; baking a spice cake in a spice grinder.
The winners from the prior heats compete; In the first round, one chef has to cook fish sticks in a weather chamber; two chefs make ramen while starring in a giant monster movie.
