Cutthroat Kitchen

Premise
``Cutthroat Kitchen'' isn't a typical cooking competition. A player, in addition to being a good chef, must be able to outwit and, at times, sabotage opponents in order to win. Each episode features four people vying in three rounds to win up to $25,000 cash. At the beginning, $100,000 is split evenly among the players to spend however they wish during the game. The chefs spend the money at auctions to get things that could help them -- like buying exclusive use of salt -- or hinder their opponents -- like prohibiting them from tasting a recipe in progress. Each round eliminates one chef, until there is a winner. Although the competitors want to make purchases at auction to improve chances of winning, none wants to spend too much; the amount remaining in the winner's bank determines the ultimate prize. Alton Brown hosts.
