CHEFS' CREATIVITY AND SKILLS PUT TO THE TEST IN THE AISLE AND KITCHEN IN "GUY'S GROCERY GAMES," HOSTED BY GUY FIERI

Series Premieres October 20th at 8pm ET/PT on Food Network

NEW YORK, NY - September 12, 2013 - Best-selling cookbook author and successful restaurateur Guy Fieri hosts the new Food Network supermarket-themed cooking competition Guy's Grocery Games, premiering Sunday, October 20th at 8pm ET/PT. Set in a grocery store, four talented chefs compete against each other through three cooking challenges, as they must navigate their way through the aisles adhering to a number of "real-world" culinary challenges to create tasty dishes. The chefs must rely on their improvisation, gamesmanship and culinary skills for a chance to win up to $20,000.

"Having the chefs compete in a real grocery store, with every day products and real world obstacles will make this one of the most challenging and relatable cooking competitions we've ever devised," said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network.

In each episode, four chefs must battle it out over three rounds through a number of complex challenges designed to test their culinary chops. Whether its creating a dish in five ingredients or less, preparing a meal using only canned foods, or using ingredients only found in the frozen food section, the chefs will have to use all the tools in their arsenal to make it through these and other challenges. One-by-one the losing chefs are eliminated by a rotating list of guest judges that include Melissa d'Arabian, Richard Blais, Beau MacMillan, Jet Tila, and Marcela Valladolid, among others. The last chef standing goes on a shopping spree of a lifetime, as they have two minutes to get through the aisles to collect all the items on their shopping list. Each item is worth $2,000 and if the chefs can gather all the items on the list they win $20,000.

"I'm really stoked to be hosting GGG, where it's all about cookin' and shoppin' against the clock," said Guy Fieri. "Cooking competitions in a professional kitchen are tough as it is. But throw in the challenges we all have every day in our local grocery store, plus a few twists and turns I may have up my sleeve, I'm telling you, it's going to take cooking competitions to a whole new level."

Guy Fieri is host of Food Network's top-rated and Emmy(R)-Nominated show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Guy began his love affair with food at the age of ten, selling soft pretzels from a three-wheeled bicycle cart he built with his father called "The Awesome Pretzel." By selling pretzels and washing dishes, Guy earned enough money in six years to study abroad as an exchange student in Chantilly, France. In 1996, Guy launched his culinary career with the opening of Johnny Garlics, his first restaurant based in his hometown of Santa Rosa, CA. Guy has gone on to create a culinary empire as a popular TV host, chef of six acclaimed restaurants and New York Times Best Selling cookbook author. In 2006, Guy Fieri premiered his first show, Guy's Big Bite, which was nominated for an Emmy in 2012 for Outstanding Culinary Program. This "Culinary Rock Star" also guest judges on Food Network Star and collaborates with Rachael Ray in the star studded competition series, Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity: Cook-Off and Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off.
