So we got a call from a California Casting Producer. Super nice gal and bonus…sounds hot too.

She asked if we knew about the BeatTheChefs competition with the cash prize. I said the only cash prize I needed was the $1 bills for the Friday night Champaign room…Make it rain MoFos!

I bet it’s tough in “nursing school” huh?

But apparently, it’s the real-deal cause the Game Show Network is popping a new show.

Here’s the deets peeps.
