Bobby Flay

Beat Bobby Flay: Seasonal Throwdown joins the Food Network and Discovery+ holiday lineups ahead of the holiday season. The festive special limited series will keep the original show’s idea but amp it up to fit the holiday spirit. The competition will be split into three rounds. Two chefs will go head-to-head in the first round before the winner advances to the next round to face another notable chef. Whoever advances from rounds one and two will battle for the winning title against Bobby Flay in the final round of each show.

According to the press announcement for the show:

“Each episode is one hour long, and the Beat Bobby Flay format has been extended to three rounds with a team element – and, in Bobby’s worst fear, only the hardest chefs are entering the kitchen to take him down.”

Beat Bobby Flay: Holiday Throwdown will air on Food Network and Discovery+ on November 8 at 9 p.m. ET.

Meet the host of Beat Bobby Flay: Holiday Throwdown ahead of the launch of the program.

Bobby Flay has become a household name in both the culinary and television industries. His multiple programs, restaurants, and publications have contributed to his $60 million net worth. Flay is one of the most well-known and wealthy celebrity chefs, having originally gained prominence as a participant in Iron Chef America. The 57-year-old chef began his culinary career at the age of 17 after dropping out of school and working at Joe Allen’s restaurant in New York, where he found his passion for food. Joe Allen opted to fund his tuition at the French Culinary Institute, where he finished with a degree in culinary arts since he did so well.
