On each episode of Dinner Takes All!, a family of five prepares their very best meal including a main dish, sides and a dessert. During the cooking, members of the family also compete for points in a variety of food-themed games such as trivia, guessing, physical challenges and more. The family with the most points from the games and the cooking combined, takes home the $10,000 prize.
We are searching for all types of families, so get creative and put together a winning combination. Examples of families: a combination of siblings, parents, married/engaged couples, grandparents, aunts/uncles, in-laws, exes, cousins, and even friends who feel like family - any and all family dynamics welcome!
All family members must be at least 12 years old by the date of taping (tentatively Fall 2019) and legal U.S. residents.
DTA IS ALSO LOOKING FOR AUDIENCE MEMBERS.
IF INTERESTED, PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR NAME, AGE AND EMAIL IN THE FORM BELOW.
Taping takes place at BYUtv’s studios in Provo, UT. All competing family members must be available for one full day of taping and handle their own travel and any necessary accommodations. Families outside of a specific radius of Provo, UT may be be offered a small stipend to offset some travel expenses, at producer’s sole discretion.
