Jeannie Mai Jenkins Announced as the New Host of Freevee's "America's Test Kitchen"!


Former co-host of "The Real" daytime talk show, Jeannie Mai Jenkins, has found herself a new hosting home and this time, she's in the kitchen! America's Test Kitchen that is. Don't think that one show ending meant that the public had seen the last of Jeannie Mai Jenkins, she took a quick pause for motherhood then jumped right back in the saddle. Jenkins, who won an Emmy while co-hosting "The Real" for eight seasons, is currently a sideline correspondent for ABC’s extreme mini-golf competition series HoleyMoley, currently in its fourth season. Now, she's adding more to her plate with cooks who come to the kitchen to win big!


Home cooks from across the country will compete to see who has what it takes to join the coveted America’s Test Kitchen team on Amazon Freevee’s new Original series, America’s Test Kitchen: The Next Generation. America’s Test Kitchen has been teaching home cooks how to be successful in the kitchen since 1993 with a "mission is to empower and inspire confidence, community, and creativity in the kitchen".


Each of the 11 contestants competing will present their dishes throughout a series of challenges that test their culinary abilities and on-camera personality. Each week, the contestants will stand in front of the judges’ panel, composed of America’s Test Kitchen icons Dan Souza, Elle Simone Scott, Jack Bishop, and Julia Collin Davison, as well as special guest judges. The last cook standing will get the job of a lifetime—becoming the newest face of America’s Test Kitchen, the opportunity to write their own cookbook, and a $100,000 prize to fund the culinary business of their dreams.


The 10-episode series premieres December 9, with new episodes airing weekly until February 10 exclusively on Amazon Freevee in the U.S. and UK.
