With so many cooking shows out there, you’re probably wondering what’s so different about this one.

4. Not All Of The Contestants Have Professional Cooking Experience
One of the things that is so interesting about Next Level Chef is that the contestants have various degrees of experience. While some of the contestants have been cooking for many years and have worked in restaurants, others are home cooks or social media chefs.

When it came time to selecting the contestants for Next Level Chef, Gordon and his team looked far and wide for the right people.
