Joel McHale hosts FOX’s Crime Scene Kitchen, which is a mix of guessing games, culinary competitions, and comedy. Using just the ingredients and clues left behind, bakers must figure out what dessert was prepared in the kitchen. They must then duplicate the recipe for celebrity judges Curtis Stone and Yolanda Gampp to discover who has the technical know-how, ingenuity, and problem-solving skills needed to decipher and recreate extraordinary sweets from around the world.
“There aren’t many clues,” McHale told reporters at a press conference for the new FOX baking show. “You’re going to be blown away by how close people get guessing from what they find.” “Then you’ll be astounded by some of the people’s utterly blundering decisions.”
Season 1’s winners are now known: The $100,000 reward was granted to Natalie Collins-Fish and Luis Flores of Las Vegas, who were crowned Season 1 victors.
Luis commented right before the announcement, “If we win this competition, our dream could come true.” Is that their ambition? In Las Vegas, to operate a bakery.
“I’m going to be my own boss forever,” Natalie added. Knowing I can be a part of my son’s life at all times is huge.”
The last assignment on Crime Scene Kitchen was to prepare a birthday cake for Yolanda, and Natalie and Luis won by beating off the other baking teams.
“This is the first time I’ve ever won anything,” Luis explained. “This would not have happened if my family had not come to the United States.”
Natalie stated, “We’ll be able to create our own bakery.” “We’ll be able to better our lives and contribute back to our family.”
Six teams from Group A and six teams from Group B were chosen from all over the country to compete in Crime Scene Kitchen.
“Some of these bakers have formal training and are quite well taught.” Then there are some who have taught themselves. And you’ll be amazed at how far self-taught people can go against how little some trained people can go,” McHale remarked. “Incorporating the crime scene [aspect] very interestingly levels the playing field.”
On FOX on Wednesday, May 26th, Crime Scene Kitchen will premiere. Until then, get to know the first season’s kitchen teams.
