Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Ted Allen, CHOPPED CHAMPS THROWDOWN features 16 previous winners of CHOPPED returning to the kitchen, as they try to survive the Chopping Block again while vying for the $50,000 grand prize, In each of the first four episodes, four CHOPPED champions compete against each other, and the winner of each episode advances to the finals and battles in the Grand Finale Champions' contest.

Battle 1 on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT
Judges: Alex Guarnaschelli, Marc Murphy, Chris Santos
In pursuit of $50,000, four Chopped champions are back at the stoves with renewed ambition, seeking to be named the best of the best! The appetizer round is as exciting as they come, and a fire extinguisher is used for the first time in Chopped history. Extreme examples of salty and sweet meet in the second basket, and a colorful, unconventional surprise in the dessert basket gets a "wow" from everyone, but can the chefs get it to work in their final plates?

Battle 2 on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT
Judges: Maneet Chauhan, Marc Murphy, Chris Santos
Four Chopped champions come back fiercer than ever with their sights set on the tournament's $50,000 grand finale. The chefs create wildly different appetizers from a basket that includes black garlic. A novelty candy in the second basket requires a hammer and some culinary imagination, and plenty of competing flavors in the dessert basket leave the chefs with some decisions to make.

Battle 3 on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT
Judges: Scott Conant, Amanda Freitag, Geoffrey Zakarian
The judges grapple with how to chop champions when four talented winners return to the Chopped Kitchen for a shot at $50,000. In the first basket, the chefs face a delicacy from the sea. A fancy sauce and a plain vanilla treat are two of the ingredients in the mix in round two, and a giant, chocolaty surprise awaits the chefs who make it to the dessert round

Battle 4 on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT
Judges: Scott Conant, Alex Guarnaschelli, Marc Murphy
Four returning Chopped champions compete for a chance to make it to the grand finale to fight for $50,000. In the first round, the chefs contend with a basket that includes tiny, infuriatingly time-consuming eggs and a Moroccan meat. Red snapper in the entree basket must be filleted in a snap, and pastries and pops in the dessert basket challenge the two remaining competitors.

Finale on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT
Four repeat champs are back for the Chopped Champions Grand Finale and the chance to make a $50,000 meal! The appetizer basket challenges the chefs with a seafood delicacy that requires a high degree of thoughtfulness. An in-your-face shocker in the second basket leaves the remaining chefs racing to make bold plates. And with the prize at stake, the two remaining chefs face off in a dessert round with a basket that is fittingly difficult.
