  • Four high-rolling chefs try their luck on the slot machine, but their culinary knowledge is challenged with a Mexican and marshmallow dish. Only three chefs will make it through to the roulette round where adaptability and luck are needed to make a catfish dish. And finally, the last two chefs standing bet the house in poker — and a chance to walk away with $30,000.

  • Four talented chefs go all in when the slot machine comes up with a Caribbean-inspired breakfast dish, but the chips fall in the direction of an unlikely chef. It's anybody's game at the start of the Roulette challenge, but one chef stumps the rest and ends up a high roller. And, the final two chefs take a chance with poker where bone marrow and sardines are king.

  • Four chefs are excited to gamble on their skills but the slot machine proves to be difficult when a chef takes a chance with meatballs. In round two there are high stakes with flank steaks and a chef goes bust when the roulette wheel is just too much to handle. Chips are stacked high in the final round of poker and the chef with the best strategy for salami, rutabaga and fruit punch gets a chance to win $30,000 at the winner's wheel.
