Beat Bobby Flay: Holiday Throwdown's newest season premieres on November 8 at 9 pm ET on Food Network and Disney Plus. In this six-episode trip, Bobby Flay takes on the ultimate challenge as he competes against the best all-star chefs in the business.

This show has been a staple of Food Network since it debuted on the cable network in 2013. Fans like seeing celebrity chef Bobby competing against a variety of up-and-coming chefs who are specifically chosen by two judges who are out to defeat Flay.

The show format has been increased to three rounds with a team element, and each episode has been lengthened to an hour. Only the strongest cooks in Bobby's worst nightmare will enter THE KITCHEN to take him down.

Where Is 'Beat Bobby Flay: Holiday Throwdown' Filmed?

Holiday Throwdown is a US-based production. The precise filming location has not yet been made public. Previously, Austin, Texas, USA, served as the location for the television program Throwdown with Bobby Flay. Therefore, they may have shot this new show nearby or in the same place.

In many respects, Austin-based filmmakers—and particularly the iconic works of Richard Linklater—have created a siren song for the city. At the same time, he served as the unwitting guardian of the past.

For better or worse, Austin's presence in the film industry has always attracted people to this peculiar area we call home with its brilliance, beauty, eccentricities, and weirdness.

Austin's face has changed in nearly three decades since the debut of the iconic independent film Slacker. This formerly modest hippy retreat has grown into a thriving metropolis, partly because of its appearance in well-known movies.

Who Is The Host In Beat Bobby Flay: Holiday Throwdown?  

During the Thanksgiving cooking competition between Tiffani Faison and Jet Tila in the season premiere, Bobby Flay invites his buddy Scott Conant as the guest host. The winner advances to round two and competes against Anne Burrell.

American celebrity chef Conant also owns restaurants and writes cookbooks. At 11, he enrolled in cooking lessons at the nearby community college and started cooking immediately. He began studying culinary skills at W.F. Kaynor Technical High School when he was 15.

He later attended the Culinary Institute of America (CIA). Conant's internship at the renowned New York City restaurant San Domenico during his time at the Culinary Institute of America significantly influenced the young chef.
