MTV just announced its new food-related reality TV series called Snackdown, and the newtork enlisted BaoHaus chef-owner and Bang Bros. aficonado Eddie Huang to host. This afternoon, Variety unleashed the following details about the show:
Snackdown, from MTV regular Rob Dyrdek, joins the cabler’s afternoon lineup. The halfhour strip features amateur chefs battling it out in an array of snack-inspired challenges for a cash prize and spot in the Snackdown cookbook. Eddie Huang hosts the program, while model Chrissy Teigen, chef Jason Quinn and a third judge evaluate the contestants.
Clearly, the network is looking to go after the young foodie demographic—it also announced plans for House of Food, a Los Angeles-based Real World-meets-Top Chef-style reality show.
We look forward to seeing what MTV and Huang have in store for Snackdown. No date yet on when the show will premiere, but we’ll keep you posted.
