More about season 1 of Beachside Brawl: A coastal feast involving an exotic menu

Beachside Brawl will be a six-week competition that will test the finest cooks on the coast. In the premiere episode, to serve the beachgoers, host Lofaso will challenge the two teams to prepare an exotic menu consisting of boardwalk stand dishes representing their coast.

Moreover, every dish must contain a stick, a fried item, something in a bun, something cheesy, and something sweet. From budget-oriented seafood banquets to tropical destination dinners and from million-dollar yacht meals to boardwalk bake sales, contestants will be judged in summer-themed showdowns throughout the competition.

Contestants appearing on Beachside Brawl are:

East coast Tiffani Faison will include a team of talented participants, including Jared Brown (Long Branch, NJ), Edward Lordman (Pensacola, FL), Ben Porter (Cape Cod, MA), and Jada Vidal (Tampa Bay, FL). On the other hand, Brooke Williamson will guide the accomplished chefs of the West Coast, including Kaleena Bliss (Seattle, WA), Brian Madayag (Edmonds, WA), Joshua Mouzakes (San Diego, CA), and Jessica Roy (Newport Beach, CA).

Every week, teams will be facing a new challenge by Antonio Lofaso. Also, viewers will see a couple of guest judges joining her, such as Stephanie Boswell, Noah Cappe, Tim Hollingsworth, Rashida Holmes, Sabin Lomac, Jeremy McBryde, and Ben Robinson.

In an interview with Food Network, Antonia expressed her excitement to work in the show:

“With my strong connection to both coasts — being born on the east and growing up on the west — I’m so thrilled to oversee this competition as my two talented friends, Tiffani Faison and Brooke Williamson brawl on the beach to prove their coast is best,”

She further explained;

“Audiences will love cheering for their favorite beach foods and rooting for their coast.”

Moreover, Jane Latman, President, HGTV Streaming & Home Content, said in a press release about selecting the head judge of The Julia Child Challenge as the host of the upcoming show:

“Antonia Lofaso’s culinary expertise and ties to both coasts makes her the ideal host to preside over this coast vs. coast battle for the best beach eats,”
