24 in 24: Last Chef Standing

Michael Symon and Esther Choi host 24 In 24: Last Chef Standing, Food Network's most ambitious and grueling culinary competition to date.

Featuring 24 talented and fearless chefs who take on 24 food challenges in 24 consecutive, non-stop hours, the 24-hour competition takes the chefs to the extreme, demanding they display the skills, creativity and stamina needed to be an elite chef.

At the end of the 24 hours, there can be only one true master left standing - and it's one selected by expert judges Eric Adjepong, Maneet Chauhan, Scott Conant, Stephanie Izard, Jet Tila, Bryan and Michael Voltaggio, and Brooke Williamson.

The chef who cooked the best, for the longest and outlasted the competition will take home $50,000 and win a trip of a lifetime.

The 24 competing chefs are comprised of culinary icons, rising stars, and competition rookies.

In the series premiere, "Shift 1: Speed": Michael and Esther welcome 24 elite chefs from all over the US into the arena where they will spend the next 24 hours cooking - if they make it that far.

Speed judge Jet Tila will taste and score every dish, separating the leaders of the pack from the chefs on the brink of elimination.

Right out of the gate, the chefs are served up a shocking twist that sets the tone for the rest of the competition, letting them know that no one will be safe from elimination until the end.
