Today at 7.45 pm ‘The Great Celebrity Chef’ returns where, unlike previous seasons, they will not have new participants. The protagonists will be the contestants who attracted the most attention in this edition called ‘The revenge’. “For Latina it is a pride to have a program that has achieved verifiable achievements, which is attracting the family in front of the television, it is also a beautiful program no matter how you look at it, which has José Peláez as the revelation,” Alexandra Olaechea tells us, entertainment management producer Latin.
“Peláez is a person with a lot of charisma and is authentic. I also believe that people perceive and value a luxury jury like Giacomo, Nelly and Javier, who give the level they deserve to all the participants who have contributed to making it a success, added to the sponsors who are very happy with this commitment. which every night appears as the most talked about on the platforms. What has happened is wonderful and what the channel set out to do, which was to create fun, healthy and family-friendly content, has been fulfilled. This is proof that people will always want to watch their national television with new things,” he adds.
—On the platforms it is said that ‘The Great Celebrity Chef’ represents white television. Do you like the term white television?
—I think that more than colors, we are satisfied that the program brings out the best in us such as effort, camaraderie, and not giving up. This program has been made from scratch with great love and the premise is that it is a space that the whole family can watch. With ‘The great famous chef’ The magic that hasn’t happened in a while has happened. She was moved, she liked it. All the conditions have been met for it to be a success and we at Latina want to continue working day by day with great humility. Continue growing and designing new programs with the same profile.

—And is there a profile to call the participants?
-None. We think of the one who is not current, but is loved; in which it is a leader in social networks, in which it is fashionable. There is no profile. We have seen people who perhaps in their daily routines would never have crossed paths, but here they have ended up being friends. In the end everyone leaves sad, but happy.
—But they have not been immune to controversy. How did you take what happened with Jimmy Santi (he accused the production team of bias and mistreatment of one of the jurors) and Josi Martínez (he accused Giacomo Bocchio of being homophobic and transphobic)?
—With peace of mind. We thank you for having participated and we have the best memories of both of us and there is no problem.
—Was José Peláez always thought of as a driver?
—Peláez is a school friend of Sebastián Martins (producer) and suddenly his name came up, but of course, there were other candidates. He ended up staying after several stages. He had commitments, but when something is for you, things happen. And there you see, his success lies in the fact that he puts himself in a position to make the rest shine, it makes the participant more powerful. He really wants to do things well, he loves what he does.
