Food Network Challenge will be back on December 23rd with a fun A Christmas Story-Themed competition as we get cake makers, bakers and sugar artists competing in this six-episode season. Food Network Challenge will be hosted By Ian Ziering as we get our pop culture contests that will also feature themes of Back to the Future, Pokémon, Monopoly and The Wizard of Oz. This combination of pop culture nostalgia and Ian Ziering will make a great recipe for fun.
This series reboot will have judges Matt Allard, Keegan Gerhard and Claudia Sandoval deciding who will walk away with the prize and title of Food Network Challenge champion, but knowing that Scott Schwartz, who played Flick in A Christmas Story this is going to be fun. We wonder if that also means we might get some stars from the other movies that will be part of the themed competition. This will be a show that will have all generations cheering for their favorite artist as we get ourselves deep into pop culture and baking.
