I don't understand cooking shows. You get to watch gourmet food being made and judges being fed, but you don't even get a whiff of the food, much less a taste. Yet, they're obviously very successful.
One such show is Iron Chef America, which is hosted (in a style so over-the-top it's fantastic) by Mark Dacascos (presented as the "nephew" of the original Japanese Chairman, though they're not related). I admit that I watch it sometimes just for the opening, where he announces - with gusto - the secret ingredient that the contestants will be cooking in the Kitchen Stadium.
Well someone must've thought that's also the best part, so allow me to present. Today's Secret Ingredient is .... EVERY IRON CHEF AMERICA'S SECRET INGREDIENT VIDEO CLIP (O_o / cue in the head turn sound effects):
