To add to her already diverse career, which has included stints as a model, actress, and even professional wrestler, Stacy Keibler is now hosting a brand-new reality series on food. ETonline has your exclusive sneak peek.
The series, entitled Supermarket Superstar, presents food entrepreneurs with an opportunity to take their product to the next level and flourish in the highly competitive food industry.
In each episode, three chefs will pitch their creation to food-industry goliaths with the chance to have their product launched in a major national grocery store chain. As the contestants prepare for mass production, they are tasked with refining their recipes in order to impress focus groups full of real-life consumers.
After the competition is reduced a select group of chefs, the aspiring food entrepreneurs will then have to generate their own unique professional packaging and present their product to a supermarket buyer. The ultimate prize for the last chef standing is $10,000 prize money and $100,000 of product development from DINE Marketing and Mattson to create professional samples of their products.
In addition to Keibler serving as host, the series will feature a star-studded panel of mentors, including chef and TV host Michael Chiarello, Mrs. Fields cookie creator Debbi Fields, and branding expert Chris Cornyn. Andrew Hunter will help the chefs with the research and development aspect of their products.
