CRAFTY CHEFS, TWISTED CHALLENGES AND SHREWD SABOTAGE RETURN IN SECOND SEASON OF "CUTTHROAT KITCHEN," HOSTED BY ALTON BROWN

Second Round of Culinary Mayhem Begins Sunday, December 15th at 10pm ET/PT

NEW YORK - November 26, 2013 - Hit primetime competition series Cutthroat Kitchen serves up ingenious cooking skills, devilish challenges and a side of sabotage with a brand-new thirteen-episode season, kicking off Sunday, December 15th at 10pm ET/PT. Culinary master Alton Brown leads the action in this one-of-a-kind gastronomic competition, where cooking chops aren't enough to win - in Cutthroat Kitchen, contestants must be cunning, strategic and not afraid to undermine their opponents.

"Alton Brown runs this show in his own inimitable way, making Cutthroat Kitchen a smart, intense cooking competition with a wicked sense of humor," said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network. "Viewers responded quickly to this unique show and we are thrilled to deliver new entertaining episodes in time for the holidays."

In each episode, four chefs are greeted by Alton with a briefcase filled with $100,000 in cold hard cash and each contestant receives $25,000 to spend wisely over the course of the game on auction items to help themselves or sabotage their competitors. After each cooking challenge is given, chefs have sixty seconds to gather ingredients in the pantry and then regroup for an auction to bid on culinary curveballs such as the exclusive use of salt or not allowing their opponents to taste their dishes. A chef is eliminated after each of the three rounds, and the last competitor to survive wins the money they have left in their bank.

After the show, viewers can visit FoodNetwork.com/Cutthroat to watch Alton and each episode's judge revisit the chefs' biggest missteps and most surprising triumphs.

Alton Brown has served as the culinary commentator of Iron Chef America for twelve seasons, and hosted The Next Iron Chef for five. He also joined Food Network Star in 2012, and will appear in the show's upcoming tenth season. Brown wrote, produced and hosted the Peabody Award-winning series Good Eats for thirteen years on Food Network, and the show can still be seen on Cooking Channel. Brown has written seven books and he also performs live stage shows, demos, speeches, lectures and talks. His first live tour, Alton Brown LIVE! is currently on the road through, March 2014

Cutthroat Kitchen is produced by Embassy Row.
