The show is a new five-part tournament where 16 chefs must incorporate unusual ingredients chosen by Alton Brown and his social media fans.

The competitors have to figure out how to include these mystery ingredients in appetizers, entrees, and desserts for a chance to win $50,000.

Some maniacal ingredients include chitterlings, livermush pudding, sticky beans and so much more.
