Real O'Neals: Kenny's Thanksgiving meal is judged by famous chefs

Get a bite out of this. Celebrity chefs are popping in for Tuesday’s Thanksgiving-themed episode of The Real O’Neals, titled “The Real Tradition.”

In an exclusive clip, Kenny (Noah Galvin) is judged by Alex Guarnaschelli, Graham Elliot, and Antonia Lofaso in a fantasy cooking challenge where he must create the perfect Thanksgiving meal in only five minutes with extremely limited ingredients.

“Guys, the only things he has in his cabinet are pancake mix, bamboo shoots, and Fruit Loops. This is going to be a total disaster. I’m super excited,” Guarnaschelli says. Soon after, Kenny is seen in a confessional, speaking to how his mom isn’t there and they usually do this together — but clarifies that she’s still alive, because he doesn’t want to win on sympathy.

The episode centers on the holiday and what happens when the O’Neals alter their traditions, with Pat and Eileen inviting Gloria and VP Murray to the festivities as their respective dates. What’s more, Gloria attempts to help Kenny cook, and Eileen braces to meet VP Murray’s mother.

The Real O’Neals airs on Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. E.T. on ABC.
