Recently I was doing some research about the Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives in Kentucky. I could've sworn that Darnell “Super Chef” Ferguson's Louisville, Kentucky breakfast restaurant was featured on Triple D. It wasn't, but Super Chef Darnell has competed in Guy's Grocery Games and Tournament of Champions. Chef Darnell is quickly adding to his hosting resume.

 Darnell “Super Chef” Ferguson on Inspiring Young Chefs

When I was a very young chef I told myself one day I would be one of the top chefs in the country.. and this season coming in #tournamentofchampions as a #1 was so surreal. I mean coming from where I started life at, to where I am now is a testament to what God can do in your life when you believe strong, work hard, and never put limits on yourself.  I hope many young chefs who see there dreams as light years away are motivated by what has happened.

If you have ever watched competition shows on The Food Network that puts one professional Chef against another, you know that things can get heated. And if you can't take the heat, I guess you move it to another show.

They will do whatever it takes to win against their culinary rival.”
