Ciao House is a Food Network new food competition show which premiered on April 16, 2023.

The show is filmed in Tuscany, the epicenter of Italian cuisine and culture. There, ten contestants were selected to compete with each other for the final prize.

The hosts and the judges of the show are Alex Guarnaschelli and Gabe Bertaccini. It is held at a magnificent villa where they cooked and lived together.

The competitors on the show were tested for their skills in mastering their Italian cuisine, not with their kitchen but within a shared kitchen similar to restaurants.

And they must impress the judges with their skills of years of cooking while they traverse through the different alliances and rivalries among the contestants.

Matt Wasson comes from Staten Island, New York, The Big Apple. Matt was eliminated from the fourth episode that aired on the network.

In that episode, he was the captain, and he had decided to make the entree dish of Bistecca alla Fiorentina. But his steak was much more raw than required.

So, his team lost the match, and voting was made for whom to be eliminated. And Matt was selected to be sent home.

Corey Becker

Corey Becker comes from Brooklyn, New York, for the Food Network cooking competition. But the chef has been eliminated in the fifth episode.

Corey had been selected as the team captain for the next match. As the contestant had to make a dish made without cheese made out within Tuscan, he was bit out of idea of what to do.

Not all the dish made by his team was liked by the judges. And finally, the one dish became the deciding factor for the end of his participation.

What Happened To Omar On Ciao House?

Omar Ashley on Ciao House had a bad injury which led to his removal from the show. Fans were disheartened with this news.

During the third match of the competition, he had been bending a lot of time to make things and complete the task they had been given.

Because of his constant bending and picking up things, he was in severe pain when he woke up for the next competition on the fourth episode.

Omar was not even able to get up because his back was in a lot of pain. He was feeling constant contractions every few seconds, and the pain stopped him from even doing anything.

In the show, he said he had suffered from a herniated disc sometime before. After the pain subsided at that time, the problem had not occurred, but during the competition, the pain was back.

The production company had to call the medical team in Italy to check if he would be able to continue with the competition or not.

The medical team suggested that he needed to see the doctor and would not be able to compete for the day.

In the show, Omar had a very good performance going on except for his first episode. Even judges were pretty impressed by his skill in cooking and the texture of his taste.

He was selected as the captain for the fourth match in the show. But due to health issues, he could not compete more, and his captaincy was given to Preston Paine.

After the third episode was aired, he talked about why he left the show to his fans and friends on his social media.

Though he could not continue participating in the show, he was proud that he had been able to participate in an international show that is shown worldwide.

On his Instagram live, he said he had gained the recognition and the connection to further gain such opportunities.

So, he will continue to appear on such food cooking competition shows from now.
