Plot Synopsis

GUY'S GROCERY GAMES: ALL-STAR INVITATIONAL is a five-part GUY'S GROCERY GAMES that features celebrated chefs who competed in Flavortown Market for the first time during this elimination tournament. Going head-to-head in this monumental showdown are culinary giants Karen Akunowicz, Nate Appleman, Jose Garces, Ilan Hall, Stephanie Izard, Mei Lin, Shota Nakajima, and Jonathon Sawyer as they vie for the chance to win up to $75,000 in prizes and the coveted trophy. Each week the chefs go head-to-head to see whose shopping and cooking skills are a cut above the rest. They must navigate their way through the grocery aisles as they are tested in challenges from "Express Lane," where they must create a signature sandwich and side using only 8 ingredients, to "Budget Battle," where they must make an impressive weeknight dinner for four with only $25, to "Frozen Food Feud," where they must make a dish only using frozen ingredients, and many more. Ultimately, the food does the talking, as a rotating panel of judges determine who checks out of the competition. Episodes include:

"Part 1" (Wednesday, August 16, 2023): Guy Fieri kicks off an epic five-week tournament as eight of the most celebrated chefs in the food world compete for the first time in Flavortown Market. Their ranks include Iron Chefs, James Beard winners, Top Chef winners and the reigning TOC Champ, but none have competed in Flavortown Market before. Now, Guy will put them through a gauntlet of diabolical games, starting with the ultimate limited ingredient game, Express Lane, as chefs make their signature sandwich and a side using only eight ingredients. The chef awarded best dish wins an automatic $10,000, while the others are vulnerable to a surprise twist!

"Part 2" (Wednesday, August 23, 2023): It's week two of GGG's greatest tournament, and the six remaining all-star chefs must take on Guy Fieri's most twisted budget games. The chefs form teams of two to make an impressive weeknight dinner for four on a $25 budget. To make things worse, Guy makes each teammate shop a separate half of the store. The team that wins best dish splits the $10,000 prize, but the bottom team members must compete head-to-head in the checkout round. The chef who makes the best $20 seafood dinner using only frozen ingredients moves on, while their former teammate is eliminated.

"Part 3" (Wednesday, August 30, 2023): In week three of the all-star invitational tournament, Guy Fieri challenges the remaining chefs with wildly unpredictable games of chance. After a food wheel determines the type of dish they must make, the chefs race off in search of their grocery carts, each of which features a mandatory ingredient designed to make their challenge even tougher. The all-star with the best dish wins $10,000, while the bottom two chefs fight for their survival in the checkout round. The chef who makes the best steakhouse dinner -- despite the restrictions dictated by the dreaded food pyramid -- will stay in the tournament.

"Part 4" (Wednesday, September 6, 2023): In week four of this intense invitational, the remaining all-stars must conquer Guy Fieri's twisted list games. First, they must make a comfort classic featuring the mishmash of items on Guy's grocery list. The chef who cooks the best dish wins $10,000 and a guaranteed spot in the finale, but the other three chefs must battle for survival by making their best burger and fries. Unfortunately, Guy hands them a list of traditional burger and fry ingredients that are off limits. The chef who makes the least successful burger plate is eliminated.

"Finale" (Wednesday, September 13, 2023): The three finalists must conquer Guy Fieri's most extreme aisle games, starting with aisle auction. The chefs outbid each other for exclusive shopping rights to three of the most essential store aisles before they can make their spicy guilty pleasure. The chef with the least successful dish will be eliminated, and the final two all-stars go head-to-head to see who can make the best 10-item winner's dinner after shopping for one ingredient per aisle. The victorious chef wins the tournament trophy, a generous gift in their name for No Kid Hungry and shop Flavortown Market for up to $35,000
