The beautiful blonde contestant on Food Fighters is former NFL cheerleader Amber MacDonald. Before becoming a stay-at-home mom, MacDonald cheered for the San Francisco 49ers. On Food Fighters, the California girl is going to use her grandmother’s recipes against rock star celeb chef Nadia G.
MacDonald had just 10 days to prepare before filming Food Fighters. She had to figure out how to cook her grandmother’s Italian recipes, which ususually take an entire day to cook, in just 20 minutes. MacDonald said the challenge was “harder than labor.” Food Fighters airs Thursdays at 8pm on NBC.
