Fearless in the Kitchen season 2 premieres June 5 on Viva


Produced by Fusion Television in association with VIVA, Season 2 of Fearless in the Kitchen returns for 13 new half-hour episodes this June as celebrity chef Christine Cushing transforms individuals who are hopeless in the kitchen through a series of culinary challenges with a light-hearted approach. In the end, the once hapless cook must put their new-found skills to the test and face their ultimate fear – preparing an edible meal for their toughest critics – their no-holds-barred family and friends. Cushing will coach and encourage the participants – who this season include Toronto’s 102.1 the Edge on-air personality Todd Shapiro from The Dean Blundell Show, and the host of W Network’s How to Look Good Naked Canada – as they work to become confident cooks.

In the first episode of the season, premiering Saturday, June 5 at 7:30 p.m. ET, viewers are introduced to the loveable but hapless Max, whose idea of gourmet cooking is adding ground beef to a box of macaroni and cheese. In order to help him prove to his kitchen whiz fiancée that he can hold his own in the kitchen, Christine teaches Max how to make a homemade version of his boxed staple for his kids. Later, he must impress hungry Valentine’s Day diners at a fancy restaurant before facing his ultimate challenge – cooking a tex-mex feast for his skeptical family and picky kids.
