A Day in Alton Brown's Life 04:32

Alton Brown takes viewers through his day on the set of Cutthroat Kitchen.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be Alton Brown for a day? It's not easy. I mean, sure, there are numerous perks and fun moments. But to tape a TV show, in this case Cutthroat Kitchen, takes a lot of work. FN Dish had the opportunity to shadow the host of this evilicious show and capture the ins and outs of a full day of taping (one day equals one episode). He opened up the door to his trailer, and showed us where he gets his coffee and how he enters each show and interacts with the culinary production team. Have you ever asked yourself whether the money in that briefcase is real? Alton dishes on that too.

Click play on the video above and follow Alton as he goes from his trailer to the set of Cutthroat Kitchen.
