TORONTO, November 5, 2015 — Food Network Canada today announced premiere dates for season three of its hit, high-stakes culinary competition series, Chopped Canada. Season three kicks off with its new host, Brad Smith, and the world premiere of Chopped Canada Teen Tournament (5×60) on Saturday, November 28 at 9 pm ET/PT. Chopped Canada’s third season continues with all-new regular episodes premiering January 9 at 9pm ET/PT.
“Chopped Canada, the channel’s number one Canadian original series of the year, is back with a new batch of hopeful competitors and all the heart-pumping competition our audiences love,” said Christine Shipton, Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Shaw Media. “This season opens with a new twist – our first-ever teen edition featuring 16 hand-picked culinary prodigies. The level of talent, energy, and competitiveness amongst this young group is edge-of-your-seat entertainment.”
Chopped Canada Teen Tournament pits 16 of Canada’s best teen chefs against each other, battling it out for a chance to win $20,000 in this five-part special. In each episode, four young chefs face the clock – and each other – putting their skill and ingenuity to the test in an attempt to turn baskets of mystery ingredients into an extraordinary three-course meal. Competitors between the ages of 13 to17 from across Canada square off against each other, with the winner of each episode advancing to the finale. Course by course, the judges decide which teen chef Chopped Canada host Brad Smith will “chop” from the competition until only one remains. The last competitor standing collects the grand prize and will be crowned the first-ever Chopped Canada Teen Grand Champion.
