dbar chef Chris Coombs will compete on the season premiere of the Food Network’s Chopped. Coombs will compete against Mercato’s Mackenzie Hilton, Eric Paraskevas of terra, and the hilariously named Siggy Sollitto to prepare a three-course meal. After each course, one contestant gets “chopped,” with the victor winning $10,000. Coombs’ Chopped episode has a creepy twist: the first course must include rattlesnake meat, says spokesperson Chris Haynes. Chopped premieres on Tuesday, April 6 at 10 p.m.
