More telling evidence: You would think the Chairman would be heavily involved in ''The Next Iron Chef'', since whomever wins becomes his newest [[strike: minion]] Iron Chef. But all the supervising and overseeing is done by Alton Brown. Hell, in the second season, Chairman Mark isn't even ''at'' Kitchen Stadium, having been detoured into the DancingWithTheStars studios; he relays his messages through video.

It has just been announced that Chairman Mark is on DancingWithTheStars (American vs.) this season. Anyone who has watched seasons of that show knows that, underneath the heartwarming vignettes and beautiful moves, it's a blood sport -- both contestants and pros get injured frequently. They are encouraged to stay in while injured. (Last season, two "dances" had to be judged via rehearsal footage.) In short, it is one of the few competitions even more dangerous than IronChef.

So, Alton Brown appealed to Chairman Mark's honor and got him to want to be on that show. The object is to supplant Mark. Ideally, Mark will be so badly injured that he will be unable to do his job ever again. There is also the possibility that he will be kicked out of the Gourmet Academy because he's been away for too long -- DancingWithTheStars takes six weeks plus however many weeks he can stay in the competition (it's '''live!'''). Alton will then seize control, perhaps placing another figurehead in the Chairman slot.

** Oops. Chairman Mark is (as is custom) appearing on the DancingWithTheStars finale. Alton must have done some fine manipulations: Chairman Mark is supposed to face off against Chuck Liddell of the Ultimate Fighting League... <shudder>

*** For the same reason Popeye in the RobinWilliams film of that name dislikes spinach. Just because it's the source of his power doesn't mean Kaga enjoys it in itself.

[[WMG: Alton Brown appealed to Chairman Mark's pride or honor to attempt a UriahGambit-cum-XanatosRoulette and gain unquestioned control of the show.]]
It has just been announced that Chairman Mark is on DancingWithTheStars (American vs.) this season. Anyone who has watched recent seasons of that show know that, underneath the heartwarming vignettes and beautiful moves, it's a blood sport -- both contestants and pros get injured frequently. They are encouraged to stay in while injured. (Last season, two "dances" had to be judged via rehearsal footage.) In short, it is one of the few competitions even more dangerous than IronChef.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Legally, Mark inherited Kitchen Stadium Japan and appointed Tamaki as chairman.]]
This goes with an above WMG that Kaga was alive during the creation of Kitchen Stadium America but died before the creation of the revival. Mark, as Kaga's sole heir, inherited Kitchen Stadium Japan and everything that went with it upon Kaga's death. However, having already tried to juggle two stadiums (America and Australia) and failing at it (leading to Australia's closure), Mark chose to appoint someone to serve as Japan's chairman. The question now becomes, how did Tamaki come into consideration and why did Mark pick him?

* Ishinabe appeared in the King Of Iron Chefs Grand Finale, being introduced as Iron Chef the first along with Michiba and Nakamura. So, retconning him theories is kinda moot.

** This would also explain why he's on the revival.

* [[spoiler: Not ''necessarily'' Jossed. True, the revival showed his grave, but it's entirely plausible that he did fake his death, but sometime between the beginning of ICA and the beginning of the revival he died.]]
