'The Kitchen' Co-Hosts To Compete On Chopped?

It appears that The Kitchen co-hosts Katie Lee, Marcela Valladolid, Jeff Mauro, and Sunny Anderson may be competing against each other on an upcoming episode of Chopped.  Marcela Valladolid posted the following picture on Instagram with the caption "#thekitchen on #chopped"

Geoffrey Zakarian wasn't in the picture, so perhaps he was the odd man out, unless he will be one of the judges.  I would assume this is for a Chopped episode, but they could be filming a Chopped segment for The Kitchen.

Jeff Mauro and Katie Lee don't seem too happy about their early morning filming. 

Everyone has competed on an episode of Chopped before except Katie Lee.  Sunny and Jeff actually competed against each other on an episode, with Sunny winning that particular episode.


  1. I actually like this show and like all of the co-hosts, except that Katie Lee's voice just drives me up the wall.
    Geoffrey Z. seems more humble in this setting, and he needs to come across as more humble, because he can come across as totally stuck-up, i.e., pretentious, in other programs.
    It would not be remotely fair for him to be judging his fellow co-hosts.

  2. I like both shows, so I'm looking forward to whatever this is happening - whether they're competing on Chopped or having a Chopped themed episode.

  3. I really cannot get into this show. They talk over each other and Jeff Mauro seems to be just a 'place holder' in this show. As far as Katie Lee.......*smh* another person famous for being famous, like Paris Hilton or the Kardashians, no thanks.

  4. I watch the Kitchen but can't stomach Sunny Anderson's lack of knowledge ever since she told Jeff Mauro that his portobello burger wouldn't be vegetarian if he put cheese on it. How ignorant can you be? There's no excuse for that on a national tv show.

  5. Katie Lee reminds me of a young Denise Richards

  6. Now that you mention it, I can see the resemblance.
