Watch Food Network Challenge

The Food Network Challenge is a competitive television series show that will air on the Food Network channel. Each one of the episodes will feature a professional chef who is on a time limit within their own professional specialty. The winner of the challenge will receive a gold medal along with a check for $10,000.

The competition is going to be judged by other specialists within the culinary bracket who fit into the specific challenge. The contestants, or rather the chefs, on the show are given an 8-hour window to complete the test where there are specific rules that must be followed. For example, the cake competitions will require that the cake be a maximum and minimum height. The cake must also adhere to a specific theme and has to be moved to be judged without the cake falling or tipping over. At the end of the challenge, the host of the show will say, Competitors, Stop Your Work.

The episodes for the show are actually filmed in front of an audience where there is a tourist attraction nearby or filmed at the tourist attraction. The challenges will depend on the exact competition and can range from two people to hundreds of people. There are some competitions that are held to examine which of the competitors is best each week. There are the occasional competitions that are held as championships or even by invitation only.

The winner of the competition will receive a check, usually for $10,000, along with the gold medal. In the more invested challenges, the winner will be competing for different levels of medals along with a higher stake of prize money. In these competitions, the winner will generally receive a check for up to $50,000.
