The show description states:
"We're decking the Chopped halls with the stars of Food Network's The Kitchen! In the first round, the talented co-hosts must make merry appetizers out of seafood salad and challah bread. Then in the entree round, meat and potatoes seem like a great gimme, but what will the star cooks do to bring yule logs to the holiday party? And the two finalists' demeanors become fast and focused as they try to win a $10,000 holiday gift for a favorite charity."Perhaps Geoffrey Zakarian was left out due to him being an Iron Chef with a skill advantage as well as him being a frequent judge on Chopped. The episode was filmed all the way back in June, but it just airing now due to the holiday theme. Jeff, Sunny, and Marcela have all competed on Chopped before, so Katie Lee is probably at a disadvantage from the start. Who do you think wins it tonight?
