Ramsay and Fox Entertainment struck the new deal following a bidding process that pitted some of the world’s largest media companies, including Disney (via Variety). While existing programming currently produced for other platforms will continue to operate under their appropriate banners, Ramsay will develop new content specifically for Ramsay Global Studios, including âNext Level Chefâ. The new show, announced by Fox Entertainment earlier this year (by deadline) will air during the 2021-2022 TV season.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show’s name âNext Level Chefâ is a play on its decor design – a multi-level culinary arena where each level is outfitted with a unique kitchen setup and matching ingredients. Contestants will include ordinary people – including home cooks, restaurant chain cooks, social media foodies and food truck owners – who aspire to become professional chefs, or at least claim a title. .
Ramsay will host the show and serve as a judge and mentor for the contestants. He will be accompanied by Chiefs and Judges Nyesha Arrington and Gino D’Acampo. Each of the three judges will recruit a group of chef candidates and guide them through challenges. The candidate still standing at the end of it all wins $ 250,000.
