Curtis Stone on Celebrity Apprentice 2010It seems quite a few culinary changes are happening at the NBC network these days. But last night's events centered around these three celebrity chefs: Curtis Stone, Guy Fieri, and Bobby Flay.

Curtis Stone in "The Celebrity Apprentice:" This season's impressive lineup of celebrity contestants includes world-renowned UK chef Curtis Stone, whose claim to fame started while working alongside Marco Pierre White in London. He eventually moved on to appear in such shows as "My Restaurant Rules" and "Take Home Chef." He had a chance to shine in last night's season premiere; while under the project management of rocker Bret Michaels, head chef Curtis Stone ran a diner to serve meals for charity. Featured on the menu were a wild truffle mushroom risotto, chicken cutlets, grilled turkey sandwiches, grilled shrimp salad, and a signature "Hundred Dollar Burger."  And due to the menu items' high price points, Stone's team ended up winning the challenge, earning $100,000 for the American Diabetes Association.

Guy Fieri in "Minute To Win It:" Anyone who's ever watched "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" or attended the Rock & Roll Culinary Tour knows why Guy Fieri is the most successful chef to come out of the Food Network reality series "The Next Food Network Star." Now, he's taken his personable talents out of the culinary realm to focus on hosting a new NBC game show called "Minute To Win It," in which game show contestants are given 60 seconds to perform challenging puzzles using ordinary household objects. Balancing 5 apples on top of each other, or emptying a box of tissues with one hand, is very challenging in a minute or less! Fieri's new show airs Sundays at 7 p.m. ET.

Bobby Flay in "America's Next Great Restaurant:" Formerly titled "United Plates of America," this new restaurant series from NBC has just recently signed the oh-so-likeable chef Bobby Flay. He will be appearing on the celebrity judging panel, and has also said he wants to serve as a prominent mentor and potential investor on the show as well. A premiere date for the new series has yet to be announced.
