Gina Foxton doesn't expect anything to be handed to her. The former runner-up Miss Teen Vidalia Onion is now the host of her own Georgia public television cooking show, and she's dating the show's producer. But when her show gets canceled, and she finds out her boyfriend has been unfaithful, Gina realizes that she's meant for better things.
The Cooking Channel is searching for its next big star, and Gina is certain that she fits the bill. Trouble is, the execs also have their eyes on "Kill It and Grill It" Tate Moody, the star of a hunting, fishing, and cooking show namedVittles. Tate is the ultimate man's man, with a dog named Moonpie and a penchant for flannel shirts. He's also a tasty side of beef with a swooning female fan base. Gina and Tate are soon to embark on the cook-off of their lives, spiced up by a little ingredient called love.
