Hell's Kitchen, Top Chef, Next Food Network Star Duke It Out
TV with MeeVee - Burlingame, CA, USA - Variety is running head-to-head reviews of "Hell's Kitchen" and "Top Chef," but they've ignored a strong contender in "The Next Food Network Star."

One advantage, a commenter at Duckyxdale points out, is that the players know they need to be likeable if they're going to succeed as TV chefs, so the show is short on backstabbing and long on food.
