Fieri family hits highway on 'Guy's Family Road Trip'
Audiences have followed their careers, read their cookbooks, and watched them on TV. Beginning Sunday, Aug. 20 (8 p.m. ET/PT), they can watch these celebrity chefs compete against each other in a no-holds-barred tournament on "Guy's Grocery Games: Superstars."
In this five-week tournament, Fieri will give eight of America's superstar chefs the chance to win $40,000 for their favorite charity. But first, they must battle each other in some of the most twisted games the Flavortown Market has ever seen.
Rocco DiSpirito, Elizabeth Faulkner, Tregaye Fraser, Alex Guarnaschelli, Antonia Lofaso, Brian Malarkey, Marcel Vigneron and Justin Warner go head-to-head in this tournament to see whose skills have game. Each week, the chefs will be put to the test in the grocery store aisles. The top chefs will automatically move on in the competition, while the bottom contestants will face off in a redemption round. Each week, one chef will check out of the competition, while the others stay for the chance to earn big money for charity.
•For years, Fieri has explored America, seeking out the best spots on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." Now, he is sharing that experience with his family as they hit the road for the classic American tradition - a family road trip from sea to shining sea!
On Friday, Aug. 18 (9 p.m. ET/PT), Guy, his wife Lori, and his sons Hunter and Ryder, load up their RV to hit the road on a vacation they will never forget. From rafting in the Grand Canyon to rolling down Route 66, and from creole cooking in New Orleans to pit stops stuffed with campfire feasts, this road trip is full of great food, iconic locations and big adventure!
A sneak peek of the premiere episode airs Sunday, Aug. 13 (10 p.m.), with the series then airing in its regular day and time beginning Friday, Aug. 18 (9 p.m.).
"I'm excited to hit the open road for the ultimate RV trip," Fieri said. "With years of experience seeking out the country's funkiest joints, I can't wait to dig into America's signature dishes and destinations with my family. The best part is that I get to bring the viewers along for the ride!"
From quirky festivals and campfire cooking to national parks and roadside attractions, the family will dig into America at its best. They'll pit stop for great food and big adventure at iconic locations and encounter some crazy characters, too. Along the way from their home in California to Florida's soft-sand beaches, they will catch up with some familiar "Triple-D" chefs and meet some new faces whipping up unique eats.
Adding more flavor to this trip, they will embark on local adventures, including a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon, connecting with nature at a wildlife preserve in Flagstaff, Arizona, and rafting in the waters of the Colorado River. Plus, the fun continues with a visit to the Alamo, a special dinner for troops in San Antonio, a creole crawfish boil in New Orleans, fresh oysters in Alabama, and lots of RV-side campfire feasts.
