Plot Synopsis

In each half-hour episode of FAST FOODIES, award-winning chefs Kristen Kish, Jeremy Ford and Justin Sutherland invite a celebrity guest to bring their favorite fast food item to the restaurant as they compete to perfectly recreate and then skillfully re-imagine the dish. From double burgers to Hawaiian pizza and sausage muffins, these culinary masters are ready to showcase their love of pop culture fast food legends and their expert skills to win the Chompionship Trophy. Celebrity guests in Season 1 include Joel McHale, James Van Der Beek, Andy Richter, Amanda Seales, Ron Funches, Charlotte McKinney, Kevin Heffernan & Steve Lemme, Fortune Feimster, GaTa, and Bobby Lee. Kish (TOP CHEF Season 10) and Ford (TOP CHEF Season 13) were TOP CHEF champions, while Sutherland (TOP CHEF Season 16) finished in 6th place. In the series opener, Joel McHale stops by and reminisces about food he misses the most from his Midwestern childhood stomping grounds: the Chicago-style wiener. Nuclear-neon green relish, poppy seeded bun and all. But today is Joel's lucky day as the three chefs tackle the recreation of the dog of all dogs -- the Chicago red hot! Once they conquer the copycat wiener mountain, it's off to the remix round where they'll put a haute cuisine spin on the hot dog classic. Only one chef walks away with the Chompionship trophy -- and Joel's love and approval. The wiener heat is on!
