"I'm going to win because I want it, I want it really badly"

"I'm not confined by a lot of rules."

"It's not just a cooking competition. It's about getting from point A to point B"

American and British chefs are racing coast-to-coast competing for a $100,000 grand prize in BBC AMERICA's new original series CHEF RACE: U.K. vs U.S. from Executive Producer JAMIE OLIVER.

*** World Premiere Tuesday Oct 2 with back-to-back episodes starting at 9/8c *** only on BBC America.

Before the coast-to-coast culinary culture clash kicks off, get to know the American team's 8 chefs!

And don't miss a special Sneak Preview of Ep 1 *** Saturday, Sept 29 at 10/9c*** following the DOCTOR WHO mid-season finale.

CHEF RACE: U.K. VS. U.S. pits 16 chefs -- eight Brits, eight Americans -- against each other as they race from Los Angeles to New York City, without their cash or credit cards and with only their will to survive, prosper and win!

Michelin-starred London restaurateur, RICHARD CORRIGAN (Masterchef), serves as a mentor and judge, and CLAIRE ROBINSON (Food Network's 5 Ingredient Fix) hosts.

From dealing with an entire bison in New Mexico, fishing in the Great Lakes and maneuvering a mobile pizza oven in Chicago to tackling serious barbeque in Memphis and whipping up their best crab cake in Maryland, these chefs must prove they've got what it takes when thrust into the rich diversity of American cuisine.

Not only will they have to prove their culinary weight, they'll be forced to stay formidable against teammates with big egos and sharp tongues. Resourcefulness, ingenuity, leadership and finesse will be just as important on their 4,000 mile adventure as the tastiness of their delectable creations.
