The Next Iron Chef
Turnover. Turnover exists. In the restaurant industry the turnover rate is high. Consequently, the search is once again on for another Iron Chef. Okay, the truth is that we have no idea if anyone has left the Iron Chef ranks since the last "The Next Iron Chef," but eventually someone will, so really Food Network is just being pro-active in terms of the group of chefs. Think about it, how sad would it be if Food Network didn't run the search in advance and then all of the sudden there were no Iron Chefs because a spate of them retired? This isn't like the Supreme Court, they can't run one man (or woman) down.
