Alex vs. America is a reality cooking competition series featuring three culinary superstars who are competing over three rounds against one another as well as aganinst chef Alex Guarnaschelli.
These competitors hail from different states, but they all share the same mastery of a specific ingredient or dish -- one that they have spent endless hours in their own kitchen perfecting -- and which is now tested in an effort to take down Alex. At the start of each battle, Guarnaschelli and the competitors learn what the challenge would be, with the chefs having the ability to work together in selecting variables for their dishes as well as the amount of time they give themselves and Guarnschelli to cook with. Each finished plate undergoes a blind tasting, with only the top three chefs advancing and the least successful from the challenge being immediately sent home, even if it is Guarnschelli. In the end, it all comes down to what's on the plate. Will the final two chefs outcook and outshine Guarnaschelli, earning bragging rights and $15,000 over an award-winning Iron Chef? or will Guarnaschelli's legendary winning streak continue, sending all the ambitious competitors home with nothing but their disappointment?
