Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Ted Allen, each one-hour episode of CHOPPED: BEAT THE JUDGE features three former CHOPPED winners who return to the kitchen as they vie for the chance to take on one of the CHOPPED judges. The three chefs compete against each other in the appetizer and entree rounds, as usual, and the last chef remaining takes on one of the CHOPPED judges in the dessert round -- with $10,000 and bragging rights at stake. Episodes include:

Alex Guarnaschelli (Tuesday, April 7): Three returning CHOPPED winners compete for a chance to face off against illustrious CHOPPED judge Alex Guarnaschelli. The brave competitors may have second thoughts when they feast their eyes on the jar of bright orange sauce in the appetizer basket. In the entree round, the chefs have a lot to deal with, including a latte in a puzzling package. The champ who makes it to the Beat Alex round stands to win major bragging rights if they can turn a gooey cake and savory morsels into a $10,000 dessert. The round ends on a chaotic note, leaving everyone wondering how the final dishes from Alex and her challenger will turn out. Judges: Scott Conant, Marc Murphy, and Maneet Chauhan.

Scott Conant (Tuesday, April 14): Three CHOPPED winners with more to prove set out to pull off an upset by taking down CHOPPED judge Scott Conant. First-round jitters could make the champs' path to another victory more difficult, and the alligator in the entree basket seems more frightening to one chef than the other. In the last round, Scott Conant's rare appearance at the CHOPPED stoves is made memorable by his fierce determination to succeed and his fierce hatred for one of the basket ingredients. Can he rise to the challenge and defeat the champ?

Tiffani Faison (Tuesday, April 21): Three determined chefs return to the CHOPPED kitchen eager to take on CHOPPED judge Tiffani Faison, but first they have to battle each other! An unusual snack food is part of the puzzle in the appetizer round, and in the entree round, the champs try not to let a mashup ingredient get them down. The chef who moves on to the Beat Tiffani round faces some high-brow and low-brow ingredients and stiff competition from a judge who loves to win.
