American favorite ``Chopped'' heads north of the border to Canada with a familiar format and new host, Toronto native Dean McDermott, perhaps best known as being the husband of actress Tori Spelling and co-star of the ``Tori & Dean'' reality TV franchise. Each episode of ``Chopped Canada'' challenges four professional chefs to turn boxes of mystery ingredients into a three-course meal in a race against the clock. Each course serves as its own round in the competition, and the chef with the least-successful dish -- as determined by a panel of judges -- is eliminated after each round. The chef who comes out on top following the dessert round wins $10,000 and the title of ``Chopped Canada'' champion.
