What Is Cooku With Comali About?
So, much like every other cooking show, Cooku With Comali follows the same format of competitive stages. Each stage taking the competitor one step ahead towards the ultimate prize. The difference here is the competitors. They are not aspiring cooks but are comedians and celebrities by profession. These comedians are put together in a team with popular celebrity chefs and battle each other to the finale. The show brings out cooking with fun-filled one-liners and jokes coming from the top comedians of the state.
The tasks and road to finale begin with two Advantage tasks in the beginning. An advantage task is simply nothing but a task that may give the winner an upper hand for the upcoming next task. The advantage could be the time frame or removal of obstacles or anything. The winning team is allowed to choose to go ahead with which advantage.
The Advantage task is followed by the Main Task. Here, the cooking game becomes much harder. There will be obstacles and challenges added along. These obstacles also come with a certain time limit that contestants have to adhere to. Furthermore, the tasks should be done mostly by the Comalis while the celebrity chefs guide them. The winner of the Main Task will receive immunity. He will be safe from next week’s elimination which sees the losing teams compete for staying the show. Thus, the winner of Main Task won’t even participate in next week’s competition. This way, the competitors fight till the ultimate finale to become the winner.
