Plot Synopsis

In GUY'S CHANCE OF A LIFETIME, Guy Fieri searches for one talented food entrepreneur to run their own Chicken Guy! franchise. Guy was flooded with applications from all over the country and chose the seven top candidates to participate in this high stakes job interview to become the owner of the newest location of the Chicken Guy! franchise. The candidates must prove they can successfully lead every aspect of the food business -- from culinary, to marketing, and to front of house hospitality. Over the course of the six hour-long episodes, only one will have their destiny changed forever when they win the ultimate chance of lifetime. "No eliminations, no meaningless cook-offs each week. It's a real deal job interview for a life-changing opportunity," said Fieri. To up the difficulty of the interviews, Guy and business partner Robert Earl hand selected a panel of experts consisting of business and food professionals to help mentor the candidates each week and determine the winner, including: Maneet Chauhan, Hunter Fieri, Anthony Hoy Fong, Antonia Lofaso, Christian Petroni, and John Thall. The candidates vying for a chance of a lifetime are: Kevin Cooper (Philadelphia, PA), Chase Davis (Atlanta, GA), Cayton Flippen (Paris, TX), Eboni Henry (Dallas, TX), Chelsea Sargent Lira (Houston, TX), Phillip Tomasso (Rochester, NY), and Douglas Walls (Asheville, NC).

The premiere episode begins welcoming everyone to "Chicken Guy! University" for an education on everything there is to know about the franchise. First, Guy challenges them on the cooking line, where they must learn every station and how to prepare every item on the menu. No one is prepared when Guy opens the doors to customers, meaning they must service the lunch rush, all under Guy's watchful eye making sure every detail is correctly executed. The pressure rises week-to-week as the candidates must prove they want the franchise most. Mid episode, a candidate is overcome by pressure, making a shocking decision that rocks everyone.

As a sneak preview, the series premiere is available to stream a week early on discovery+ on Sunday, December 26, 2021. In this special preview, "Ready to Fly or Fry," Guy introduces the six job candidates, and the arrival of a seventh candidate causes a big upset. Their first challenge is to learn the Chicken Guy! food items and line and then feed a crowd of hungry customers.
In the finale, "Guy's Keys to the Kingdom," on Sunday, February 6, 2022 at 9pm ET/PT of Food Network, the candidates serve hundreds of customers at a "Fly or Fry" Food Festival, the culmination of all the training, critique, and intensity. There they run individual food tents marketing their unique culinary points of view to Guy, the judges and the massive crowd. They must fully execute a grand opening of a brand-new Chicken Guy! In the end, one candidate will surge ahead of all the others to win Guy's Chance of a Lifetime and the keys to their very own franchise.
