Sharing this interesting announcement about the Asian Food Channel’s first-ever reality series filmed entirely in the Philippines:
“On Tuesday, March 11 at 9pm, the Asian Food Channel (AFC), part of the Scripps Networks Interactive family of lifestyle media brands, will premiere its latest original production, Amazing Food Challenge: Fun in the Philippines on SkyCable Channel 22 and Cignal Channel 26.
Hosted by Malaysian celebrity Sherson Lian, this travel and cooking reality show follows the journey of 10 intrepid contestants as they travel across the Philippines to compete for $50,000 worth of prizes. The contestants will encounter grueling physical and culinary challenges inspired by the Philippines’ dishes, culture, traditions and landscape. Overseeing the culinary challenges will be Sherson, as well as the program’s resident judge, Chef Rolando Laudico, who is one of the most recognizable names in the Filipino culinary scene today. In each region visited, Sherson and Chef Laudico will also be joined by an expert guest judge who helps to assess the contestants’ performances. Those who underperform will be eliminated until three top contestants remain to compete for the grand prize.”
Domingo Ramon C. Enerio III, chief operating officer of the Philippine Tourism Promotions Board noted: “Amazing Food Challenge: Fun in the Philippines takes viewers to various provinces in the country and shares the heritage and traditions that have been passed down by those who live there. Viewers are sure to be charmed by the beautiful sights and sounds this region has to offer and I’m sure will have great fun watching the competition too!”
Looks interesting enough. My household will be marking March 11 on our calendar. Oh wait, that’s tomorrow
