A release about the series explains the details:

On Sunday, Dec. 9th, Tampa resident Chef Shane Shaibly, corporate chef at Tampa-based Melting Pot Restaurants, will become America’s next celebrity chef!  During the premiere of a new A&E reality series, under Chef Shane’s tutelage, two franchise employees compete for chance to go from Average Joe to CEO …or become owner of his very own franchise worth up to one million dollars – one of the largest prizes in television history!
