After concocting their creations, the competitors hit the streets to have the public vote their favorite flavor. The winner from the public’s taste testing earns immunity from elimination. The loser gets sent home and the flavor gets buried in the Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard.

Hosted by Molly Yeh, the show premieres with a 90-minute episode on August 16th at 9pm ET/PT.
