Summertime Games, Next Level BBQ & Beachside Bites Are Heading Your Way
Find out what new premieres and competition finales are airing in July.
Guy Fieri is celebrating summer with a splash! He invites eight GGG winners back for an epic five-week tournament featuring cool new games, bold summer flavors and some killer grillin'. In round one, the chefs prepare a signature summer dish with only the ingredients they can fit in a beach bag! The best dish earns an instant $5,000, but the bottom two chefs go head-to-head to make the grilled chicken dinner of their lives. One chef will be eliminated, and the remaining chefs will stay in the running to become the ultimate summer champ and win $25,000!
It's the most competitive game in food — BBQ! Chef and restaurateur Michael Symon heads to the biggest BBQ competitions across America to showcase the talented pitmasters, die-hard devotees and, of course, the most mouthwatering 'que around.
Host Jeff Mauro and three chefs descend on an unsuspecting block party in America for the ultimate outdoor cook-off challenge. With only 10 minutes on the clock, the chefs must convince a homeowner to let them in their house and hand over ingredients from their kitchen and pantry. The chef that can make the most delicious dishes in their curbside kitchen using only the items they've collected will reign supreme and split a cash prize with their lucky family.
The final two teams go head-to-head at a San Diego brewery where they must sell a dish based on the other team's signature menu item. After tasting a flight of craft beer, the teams create new specials to sell as a paring to brewery patrons. Next, Tyler Florence and Chef Ruffo Ibarra challenge the trucks to cook with the hottest chilies in the world. Both teams pull out all the stops, but only one team is awarded the $50,000 and crowned winner of the hottest season ever!
With the ultimate summer getaway on the line, Antonia Lofaso challenges the remaining chefs to put their best spin on tropical beach food. First, the chefs and their chef-mentors Tiffani Faison and Brooke Williamson flip a classic tropical drink into a beachside meal. In the final battle, the last two chefs standing must create a dinner using ingredients from their dream destination. Guest judges Tim Hollingsworth and Rashida Holmes decide which coast's chef has proven that it has the best beach food and deserves to be crowned Best of the Beach.
Brave and talented chefs attempt to take down Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli, the most feared and accomplished competition cook in America. Chef Alex goes up against three chefs in two rounds of cooking, and anyone -- even Alex -- can be sent home after a blind tasting by the judges. Each chef hails from a different state, but they all share the same culinary specialty and drive to beat Alex for ultimate bragging rights and $15,000.
