Bravo Media and Infiniti are offering an interactive 80 Plates Tweet Challenge that gives fans the chance to win plane tickets to the destinations featured on the network’s new culinary competition “Around the World in 80 Plates.”
Hosted by food experts Curtis Stone and Cat Cora, “Around the World in 80 Plates” plans to take culinary competition to the next level by following 12 chefs competing in a race spanning 40 days and 10 countries. In each episode, the contestants will need to learn the local customs, cultures and cuisines as they battle it out in two different cooking challenges that test their skills and determination.
World-renowned restaurateurs and celebrity chefs such as Wolfgang Puck, José Andrés, Nigella Lawson, Narda Lepes and “The Demon Chef” Alvin Leung will serve as Food Ambassadors each week, giving the competing chefs an insight into the local food culture at each destination.
Every week, as the chefs compete, this location-based contest will direct fans to tweet #80plateschallenge to unlock an interactive map directing them to a secret location somewhere in the United States. The more tweets received, the faster this secret location will be discovered.
When the map finally reveals the secret city (a new city each week), the first person to reach the location and locate the new Infiniti JX with airline tickets on the windshield wins a trip to the destination featured that week on the show.
The first destination (coming up next week) is London. Here are the rest of the locations up for grabs – ten total:
Bravo will be on-site, of course, to capture each week’s winner and highlights will be posted on BravoTV.com and Bravo mobile the next day.
The show premieres on Wednesday, May 9 at 10pm ET/PT:
