For most A-list chefs, certain things are expected when they enter the kitchen: quality ingredients, sufficient space to work and adequate tools to get the job done. In the first-ever Cutthroat Kitchen: Superstar Sabotage tournament, however, 16 culinary masters will learn the hard way that when it comes to Alton Brown's Cutthroat arena, these luxuries aren’t guaranteed.

Beginning Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 9|8c, an impressive roster of famed chefs will try their hands at eviliciousness and face off against each other over the course of four heats, plus a finale of tournament-style competition. While some of the chefs may know each other and have histories of working together, don't expect the contest to turn friendly. In true Cutthroat Kitchen form, the sabotages will be hilariously brutal, the auctions fierce and the mind games in full effect.

What's at stake? Beyond chefs' reputations and the sought-after bragging rights, a whopping $75,000 prize for charity is on the line. Ultimately one chef will earn Cutthroat glory, but not before enduring a slew of sabotages at the hands of his or her peers.
