Is Rocco DiSpirito cooking up a reality show?

Though he caught heat for his 2003 NBC series "The Restaurant," celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito is cooking up another reality show. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the 43-year-old foodie favorite will serve as host of Bravo's upcoming "Rocco's Dinner Party."

The cooking competition, currently in development, will feature four aspiring chefs per episode, with DiSpirito playing judge. The hopefuls will be asked to prepare their favorite dish, a themed appetizer, and a complete dinner-party menu, with one chef being cut after each task.

Whoever doesn't make it onto the chopping block gets the opportunity to whip up courses for a private dinner party attended by DiSpirito and his very discriminating guests.

Besides "The Restaurant," DiSpirito's other reality credits include competing on "Dancing With the Stars" and appearing on "Top Chef" and "The Biggest Loser."

"Rocco's Dinner Party" is expected to debut next year, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Bravo had no comment about the series.

    He seems to be addicted to those food shows... I don't think it'll turn out well.

    He's alittle boring - too full of himself– his mother has more personality –we have Top Chef & Hells Kitchen - this may be a flop
