The setup is that Bobby Flay travels to an American town and arranges a three-way competition between "couples". Each couple has a small budget and a short time to make dinner for each of the other couples and Bobby and a "guest judge". There are thus three rounds (dinner on three successive days at each house) and then some lucky couple gets a prize.
So it's a bit like Channel 4's "Come Dine With Me".
Bobby is a likeable host, and the show is (so far) less tedious than the "3 Days with Bobby Flay" misery from last year.
But for me, even in the world of "reality television", this one feels strange and very staged. The editing feels a bit clumsy, and I'm not sure I buy that these people are living in the houses where the show is set.
Only seen a couple of episodes so far (Dallas and Los Angeles) so maybe it improves.
