Guy’s Grocery Games Returns for Season 2 with New Chefs, New Games and a New Market

by in Shows, April 4th, 2014

Guy and judgesGuy Fieri is returning with a new season of Guy’s Grocery Games, premiering May 11 at 8|7c.The competition features four talented chefs battling in supermarket-themed cooking challenges with real-world obstacles, and it all takes place in an all-new grocery store this season. It could be shopping on a budget, substituting for out-of-stock ingredients or grabbing groceries at the last minute before closing time. In each challenge, the chefs must prepare dishes with items pulled from the shelves, then face judging in front of an expert panel. One by one, chefs check out, until the winner is left standing. He or she has the opportunity to net up to $20,000 in a timed shopping spree through the aisles.

In the premiere episode, four devoted moms, who also happen to be talented chefs, compete in a special Mother’s Day showdown. Their first challenge involves a new game called ABC; the ingredients they use must start with those letters. Next, in Budget Battle, the three remaining chefs make a brunch for four on a budget of $7.08. Then, Guy throws everyone for a loop in the final game, Cart Swap, as the two remaining chefs prepare a guilty pleasure. The competitor who makes the most-indulgent dish advances to the shopping spree in hopes of winning $20,000.

Stay tuned for more fun and games throughout the season, including a special Food Network Star showdown featuring past Star winners, as well as a special Food Network All-Stars competition with Chopped judges Alex Guarnaschelli and Marc Murphy, America’s Best Cook mentor Cat Cora, and former Next Iron Chef and Iron Chef America competitor Marcel Vigneron.

Judges this season are Melissa d’Arabian, Richard Blais, G. Garvin, Troy Johnson, Catherine McCord, Aarti Sequeira and some new faces.

    Sick to death of Guy Fieri. He's loud, obnoxious & watching him eat on "DD&D" is unpleasant. I'd never watch a new GF show, I no longer watch him @ all.

  2. Robbie says:

    Too much Guy. You guys…I agree. It is obvious the network is at a loss for talent.

  3. Thanks for your marvelous posting! I quite enjoyed reading it

  4. Appreciate it … just for this wonderful content in this article,

    New game idea: Since the show is about the grocery store one game should be difficult carts. ie. cart that wont turn left, a wobbly cart, and a cart with a square wheel. That would make things more challenging and more interesting.

    Just watched Guy's Games Grilling (05/25/14). I had hoped that this was an honest contest. The first zinger was peanut butter on a pizza. Three of the four contestants attempted to incorporate this into their pizza. One contestant just spread the peanut butter on the side. Also the comments were that her pizza was more of a sandwich. She was not eliminated.

    Maybe the producers or the sponsors wanted to be politicly correct. She was the only female. I turned off the show and will not watch it again. I am very disappointed in Guy.

    Love the show watch it every week. As someone who uses an electric cart when shopping I think that that would be a different twist to the show they can only use items that they can reach while still seated in the electric shopping carts. You might need to allow an extra few minutes to shop.

    Thank heavens. I thought I was the only one sick of Guy. He is on too much. His triple D is on constantly on the weekend. Bobby Flay is another one I can't stand, way too arrogant. Love Tyler Florence, Ted Allen and Alton Brown. They all seem down to earth.

    On episode GK0312H (…Fry, Fry Again), Chef Christopher selected a chayote squash instead of the cherimoya on his shopping spree list. $2000 for the wrong item?! While I can accept that Chef Christopher made a mistake, there is no excuse for Guy Fieri and the Food Network staff to miss such a gaff.
