Anal-retentive AARON FLANDERS, 50, is considered the Master Chef to half the food world. But he's loosing TV ratings to his competitor ad ex-wife, KATE MONROE, 45, the fabulously free and sexy Master Chef to the other half of the food world. To rile Kate and win the top spot, Aaron's smarmy producer, ELVIN, 30, convinces Aaron to do a series of cooking shows in unusual locations around the world, like the sun baked Amazon and frozen Arctic. Although Aaron and his gay, high-strung assistant, JULES, would much rather relax at an exclusive spa, they will do anything to keep Kate from winning this popularity contest. When Aaron's ratings climb, Kate and her entourage seethe, vowing revenge. Each will stop at nothing to win the game, and everyone in the world is choosing sides.
