This pretty much sounds like the recent pilot of Kitchen Ambush, but this uses college dorms rather than people's houses for the ingredients.
The first two contestants on the show are Ryan Depersio, who has appeared on Chopped in the past, and Aliya LeeKong, who is an accomplished chef from Junoon in New York City. It also seems that David Rosengarten will be the host of the show. You might remember David from the show Taste, which aired on the Food Network for eight years.
Right now, the only other times Chef Marks the Spot will be on are Tuesday at 11:00pm, Wednesday at 2:00am, Friday at 6:30pm, and Saturday at 1:00pm.
Let me know what you think after watching this show. Think it will become a series, or suffer the same fate as Kitchen Ambush?
UPDATE - As someone pointed out in the comments, Zoe Feigenbaum was a competing chef on the show and Aliya LeeKong was a judge. Zoe has been on Chef Academy on Bravo, Chopped (she was on in 2011 and chopped in the dessert round), and Paula's Best Dishes.
