Raid the Fridge

Reality Competition, Food
Chefs must use their instincts and test their luck in choosing mystery refrigerators based only on the photos, magnets, recipes and art on their doors in the fast-paced competition series Raid the Fridge, hosted by food writer and restaurateur Dan Ahdoot.
In each episode, four competitors can use only the ingredients from their chosen mystery fridge to create top-notch dishes.
But looks can be deceiving, so there is always an element of surprise - sometimes a refrigerator that appears to belong to an avid home cook is filled with takeout, while a crayon art decorated fridge seemingly owned by a family with toddlers could contain high-end gourmet items.
Over the course of three rounds, each with a new cooking challenge and a whole new batch of fridges to raid, chefs must impress judges Jordan Andino and Jamika Pessoa with dishes worthy of the grand prize - a fridge full of cash.
In the series premiere, "Not So Big Easy Fridges": Host Dan Ahdoot kicks off the raid by asking four chefs to make appetizers using the ingredients found in the fridges of four very different people, including a college kid and a bougie foodie.
In round two, the three remaining chefs attempt romantic date night dinners, choosing from three fridges containing leftovers from a bachelor party, Mardi Gras and a slumber party.
In the final round it's taco night, as the two remaining chefs go head-to-head making dishes from mystery fridges with very unique complications.
Judges Jamika Pessoa and Jordan Andino determine the winner who takes home a fridge full of $10,000.
