If they aren't going to do a season 1-like show, how about the following. Take 8 teams (or how ever many episodes you want to have) and have them enter the exact same contests. Each week, feature one of the teams and show them as they buy their meat, pack, prep, cook and turn in. At the end of the 8 weeks, the teams with top two scores will do a showdown for top honors and prize money. I think the 8 teams would have to be the full-timers as it will require a lot of travel. This way it takes the best from season one and the competition from season two.
