Battle of the Decades Premiere Recap for 8/16/2023

-Jonathan Bennett is hosting Battle of the Decades!

-Cooks from every decade are facing off to cook a meal from 2002!

-Antonia Lofaso, her daughter Xea Myers and Nia Vardalos are judging.

-Everyone will be cooking moussaka, inspired by My Big Fat Greek Wedding. They will also need to use Go-Gurt, bacon and a Magic Bullet for it.

-The teams quickly get to work on their food, while Jonathan fangirls over Nia, who says the moussaka story from the first movie was based on her childhood.

-As the teams cook, the judges walk around to see what they are making and to offer their commentary and advice.

-Lamb moussaka meatballs actually sound delightful.

-One of the contestants, a guy named Bruce, is in a band with Duff Goldman.

-Nia is completely fascinated with the Go-Gurt being used in the moussaka.

-I am actually surprised no one made a dirty joke about the Magic Bullet.

-The potato meatball moussaka is such a creative dish. I wish they would slow down so we can see the full recipe.

-While we get snippets of each contestant, we really don’t learn a lot about them as individuals or as teams…even though we get the little blurbs, it goes by way too quickly.

-The judges give pros and cons on each dish and talk about where they would improve.

-Shannon and Bruce and Dave and Todd move on, while Deanna and Gianluca are eliminated.
