Before Season 5 of TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS begins, 16 chefs go head-to-head to win four 8th-seed slots in the tournament bracket. In each two-hour episode, eight chefs compete for one of two spots in the tournament. TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS: THE QUALIFIERS debuts on consecutive Wednesdays at 8pm ET/PT on Food Network, beginning February 7:

"Two Chances To Make the Tournament" (Wednesday, February 7, 2024 from 8-10pm): Tournament of Champions V is almost here, and there are more amazing chefs than spots in the bracket. For the first time ever, Guy Fieri kicks things off with a 16-chef qualifier series, where the competitors will have the chance to earn one of the four remaining eight-seed slots in the TOC main bracket. Eight hopefuls chef get the competition rolling as they will have to conquer two intense battles against the other chefs and the dreaded randomizer in order to earn a spot in the main bracket where they will take on the former champions.

"More Hopefuls Find Out Their Fate" (Wednesday, February 14, 2024 from 8-10pm): Guy Fieri welcomes eight more hopeful chefs to battle it out for the final two spots in the Tournament of Champions V bracket.
