In the waiting below, let’s explore more of his stories, both personal and professional.

Joshua Walbolt On Hulu Secret Chef Season 1

The premise of Hulu Secret Chef Season 1 is such that the ten players in the show all have varying degrees of skill in the kitchen. Some are professional chefs, some home cooks, and some social media influencer chefs. But, no one in the competition is aware of anyone else’s skill set, they are worked out in discreet, isolated kitchens so that anonymity can be maintained amongst the cast. And so, they all judge each other’s dishes blind, deciding whose is the best and who is sent home based on the presentation and flavor of the plate alone.

So, in case Joshua Walbolt turns out to be the winner, he is taking home the winning prize: $100,000.

Anyway, all that is understood thus far is that Joshua has been really excited about his cooking journey on a TV reality show.
