In the series opener, "Welcome to Sweet City," the four contestants must first make an extravagant deep-fried dessert on a budget that Guy has secretly downsized. Then, they must race against the clock to make a late night guilty pleasure in only 20 minutes. Finally, Guy gifts Duff with one of his newest games: a giant gumball machine that determines which wild ingredient must be featured in a tricked-out ice cream sandwich. Whose frozen treat will earn a guaranteed $10,000?
