Last but not least, the showdown's black team is led by Curtis Stone, the Australian host of TLC's Take Home Chef. Curtis's show has helped him prepare for any surprise Padma and Oprah might have in store.
On his show, Curtis ambushes unsuspecting grocery shoppers and then invites himself into their homes to help them prepare gourmet meals. Before becoming a television star, Curtis cooked for some of the biggest names in show business, including Paul McCartney, Michael Jackson and Madonna.
Andrea, Curtis's teammate, says she been cooking almost every day since she was 10 years old. What impresses her about her partner? "I love Curtis Stone. There [are] so many reasons why," she says. "He is an amazing chef, and he is capable of whipping up some amazing dishes in a matter of minutes."
