GUY FIERI SERVES UP SOME COMPETITION WITH A SIDE OF SIBLING RIVALRY IN "GUY'S GROCERY GAMES: FAMILY STYLE"
Four Episode Stunt Premieres Sunday, January 4th at 8pm ET/PT on Food Network
NEW YORK - November 19, 2014 - Guy Fieri's favorite things are food, fun and family, and he is bringing all three together in the New Year for a Guy's Grocery Games: Family Style showdown, premiering Sunday, January 4th at 8pm ET/PT on Food Network. The families will compete over four episodes, with each episode consisting of four teams made up of a different variation of family members, each including a chef, as they compete for a chance at the grand prize. Whether it is a child with two parents, a parent with two children or siblings working together, the families must navigate their way through the aisles of a grocery store, battling it out in different supermarket-themed obstacles, including shopping and cooking on a budget, cooking a meal with five ingredients or less, or the new game of station swap, among others. One-by-one the losing families must "check out" by a rotating panel of judges, featuring Melissa d'Arabian, Richard Blais, G. Garvin, Troy Johnson, Beau MacMillan, Catherine McCord and Aarti Sequeira. The last family standing goes on a shopping spree of a lifetime worth up to $20,000. These families know, live and love food, so don't miss all the laughs, tears, and sibling rivalries delivered Family Style!

"Family Style: Kid's Choice"
Guy is constantly turning the tables, this time with kids choosing the meals. Four families face off in a brunch competition that includes a mandatory Red Light Special: raisins! In Budget Battle, families must make a comfort meal on a very uncomfortable budget. Then, the final teams must prepare a five-star dinner while playing Station Swap, a twisty new game that forces the families to trade kitchens and groceries. One family will go on a Shopping Spree worth up to $20,000.
Competitors: Binbek Family, Landefeld Family, Lavin Family, Murphy Family
Judges: Melissa d'Arabian, Richard Blais, Aarti Sequeira

"Family Style: Sibling Rivalry"
When four sets of siblings square off in a supermarket, sparks fly! The teams begin by making a family feast, but first they must agree on the 5 Ingredients or Less this challenge allows. Three families move on to make something stuffed using Guy's Grocery List of unique ingredients. Then in the feared game of chance, Food Wheel, the stakes are high as two families attempt to make an upscale dinner with strip steak and $7.15 worth of extra ingredients. The family that moves on will play for a chance to win up to $20,000 in the Shopping Spree.
Competitors: Fraser Family, Grbic Family, Loza Family, Testa Family
Judges: Richard Blais, Troy Johnson, Aarti Sequeira

"Family Style: Kids Rule!"
Four competing families start by joining the breakfast club, but this is Watch Your Weight so they can only cook with 5 lbs. of ingredients. Next, the families must make a hot lunch ABC-style, using only ingredients whose name begins with the letter R. The final two families go head-to-head in the dreaded game, Food Wheel. The winning family goes after the green stuff, up to $20,000 in the Shopping Spree!
Competitors: Bruno Family, Chiovera Family, Roberts Family, Robertson Family
Judges: Melissa d'Arabian, Richard Blais, Troy Johnson
Premiering Sunday, January 25th at 8pm ET/PT
"Family Style: Food Feud"
Chefs keep it all in the family with teams featuring husbands, wives, brothers, moms and even grandma! The pasta shelves are off-limits in Aisle Down, so our four families must really use their noodles to create their best dish. Next, three families have to come up with fresh ideas for making dessert from non-perishable items playing Meals from the Middle. The finalists must make their favorite family meal, but wait, this is Watch Your Weight, so they only get 5� lbs. of ingredients. Then, it's all hands on cart as the winning family goes on the Shopping Spree worth up to $20,000.
Competitors: Casey Family, Parrish Family, Thurston Family, Vera Family
Judges: Troy Johnson, Beau MacMillan, Catherine McCord
