Chopped is looking for home cooks ready for the light of reality television

Chopped, the cooking competition show that asks cheftestants to pair unlikely ingredients in a mystery basket (think jelly beans and sardines) in a series of elimination challenges, is opening up its kitchens to the untrained masses.

The Food Network television program is the culinary equivalent of House Hunters — the viewer always believes that they could make better choices than the contestant they're watching. In a bit of brand extension (there are only so many celebrity chefs to go around), Food Network is inviting viewers to suggest themselves for a series of themed episodes named, but not limited to, "amateurs, family feud, moms, unsung heroes, cook yourself thin, military and teens." To be considered, you have to answer a 19-question application. For advice on what to do (or not do), see Deadspin writer Drew Magary's expletive-laced, but hilarious, tirade/earnest appeal.
