Extreme Chef

Hosted by Marsh Mokhtari

Rock the Block

It is not an average day in a Newhall, Calif. neighborhood when three chefs join to battle for the title Extreme Chef. In the first challenge, the competitors must rummage through a garage to find a hidden wagon, stroller and grocery cart, and then wheel it to the back of a pickup truck to grab unmarked canned goods and prepare a meal in 30 minutes. Next, the chefs must knock on a residents' door, gather cooking materials from their pantry and race back to the streets, but not without a few extreme twists. Competitors must cook a hot appetizer on the block of a car engine all the while managing their meal in a torrential downpour. To top off the meal, the three chefs make a fruit side dish in only 30 minutes. After one elimination, the two remaining chefs must dive to the bottom of a 10-foot pool, grab a spoon and then get the remaining ingredients from a brown bag lunch from neighborhood children. Who will prepare the perfect spoonful to impress the judges and garner the title Extreme Chef? (Episode: XC0102H)
