This reality show competition really brings the heat, to the grill that is. The show is hosted by Chef JJ Johnson and Owen Benjamin, a comedian who knows his way around a burger. The duo lead a group of excited contestants through a variety of themed challenges. At the end of each episode, another hopeful grill master is sent home narrowing down the competition for the ultimate glory, creating The Next Great Burger. Expect some unorthodox ingredients, toppings, sauces, and cooking methods. The only thing that the show contestants have in common is their love for all things burgers which they give catchy names. Their tastes are extremely diverse and they use their different backgrounds to try to create the winning burger of the week and, ultimately, the entire season. The final winner is not chosen by the weekly judges but by a crowd of ravenous, burger-loving diners who vote for their favorite burger; winner takes all.
