In March MTV will premier its newest show, “House of Foods,” that will feature on Michigan State University student, according to Detroit Free Press on January 15. Brian John-Han Ko left East Lansing letting his friends believe he was “going to some sort of cooking school.”

“House of Foods” is MTV’s first cooking show which will put eight chef hopefuls on the same turf as Snookie, Miley, and Jagger, along with all the “Real World’ alum. According to MTV, chefs are becoming rockstars.

“Food, for our young cast, has become a sort of social currency,” states shows producer, Mike Duffy.

Kho is one of the eight hopefuls who has surprised his friends and family because he was going to Michigan State University to be a doctor, an orthopedic surgeon, which he soon changed to a business major right before being accepted to the show. “That didn’t go over so well,” Brian tells Detroit Free Press. Brian is originally from Royal Oak, MI where he grew up in a family of “busy parents.”

Because his parents were so busy, Brian had to cook dinner and entertain himself. “I would watch cooking shows and read as much as I could,” Kho tells the Detroit Free Press. Now that the show is done filming, Kho plans to return to East Lansing and work for a new catering company.

“House of Food” premiers on MTV on March 31 at 10 p.m. EST.
