US model Chrissy Teigen is bringing the Eye Candy game show to short-form streaming platform Quibi.
Based on the popular Japanese game show Sokkuri Sweets from Nippon TV, Eye Candy is “centred around teams of celebrities and civilians who will attempt to identify outrageous edible creations designed to look like everyday ordinary objects”.
The series comes from Main Event Media and All3Media America, Teigen’s Suit & Thai Productions, and Good Egg Entertainment.
“I’ve been fascinated by all the mind blowing cake videos seen around the world and I’m thrilled to be a part of introducing Eye Candy to many others, Teigen said. “Disclaimer: We are not responsible for any feelings of confusion, betrayal or cravings that may ensue from watching this programme.”
“When we first viewed the original Japanese series the closest reference that came to mind was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” added Jimmy Fox, president of Main Event Media. “Literally anything that appears on set could be made of chocolate or an undercover cake creation. The culinary artistry on display in the show is incredible and at the same time utterly ridiculous in all the right ways.”
