Full Episode Guide
  • The fate of four chefs is challenged when the slot machine pairs coffee and Indian cuisine. Nothing's ever a safe bet when the roulette wheel spins and the remaining three chefs all start with the same ingredient — unbutchered lamb. In the final round, two chefs compete for the big win with one of the world's most decadent ingredients, all the while following the cardinal rule of poker: never show your hand.

  • Four chefs ante up in the kitchen, and the slot machine proves to be a challenge for a chef who attempts a savory pizza dish. In round two, chefs not only need luck to play chef roulette, but they also must shuck their own scallops. In the final round of poker, the two remaining chefs must decide to go sweet or savory with chicken liver, puff pastry and maraschino cherries.

  • Four chefs are eager to show off their skills in the first round, but the slot machine presents some unforeseen challenges. In round two, the chefs gamble with their strategies when roulette raises the stakes with venison. With only two chefs left, and one $30,000 jackpot, the competition turns fierce and it's all about luck of the draw in poker.

  • 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.
