Plot Synopsis

Sixteen champions in four distinct groups -- professionals, amateurs, heroes and celebrities -- return to CHOPPED, and try to survive the Chopping Block again as they vie for a $50,000 grand prize and a new car. This time the Rounds are even more demanding, and these culinary champs really have prove themselves to the judges. 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. The initial battle features four stellar professionals: Tom McKenna, Fatima Ali, Giorgio Rapicavoli and Lauren Kyles. In the second episode, four amateur winners -- Dinah Surh, Keith Young, Marisa Biaggi and Elda Bielanski -- return to the CHOPPED kitchen. The third round features four cooking heroes: Army vet Robbie Myers, firefighter Paul Rut, police officer Diana Sabater and firefighter Richard Fields. Finally, the fourth group includes celebrities Laila Ali, Brandi Chastain, Carnie Wilson and Gillian Vigman, representing the world of sports and entertainment.
On Tuesday, September 23, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT, Food Network debuted the finale of CHOPPED: ULTIMATE CHAMPIONS, immediately following an encore presentation of the four preliminary rounds from 6-10pm. In the grand finale, the four finalists -- former police officer Diana Sabater; amateur Keith Young; professional chef Giorgio Rapicavoli; and celebrity Laila Ali -- get risotto in the first round, and they have to decide whether to completely transform it or to greatly enhance its flavor. Then in the entree round, there's a huge surprise in the basket that not all of the champs are excited to see. And with the grand prize looming large, the last two competitors open the basket to find some booze and some baked goods.
