I never would have known about this web-only mini-show if the link hadn't shown up on contestant Duskie Estes' restaurant's facebook page.
Seems the next installment of Next Iron Chef coming out soon includes quite a few returning chefs (ie Elizabeth Falkner, Nate Appleman, Spike Mendelsohn and Alex Guarnaschelli). And then they've added, online only, a pre-show competition to add on 1 last contestant.
The 4 fighting for that 1 spot are Chefs Trevino and Estes from 2 years ago on NIC, and Chef Cowan (Chopped Master Champion) and Lee Ann Wong.
The duel between Wong and Cowan is up now, the one between Estes and Trevino soon.
One has to wonder why they've got so many returnees on NIC - couldn't find enough new ones willing to endure the rigors of the competition?...
