Food Network’s Guy’s Grocery Games

Season 16, Episode 6

Full Meal Madness

“It's a full-on, full meal face-off when Guy Fieri gives the chefs 45 minutes to make three courses in each round. First, they do all the shopping for their full diner meal in miniature-sized carts. Then, they are at the mercy of Guy's ruthless Pyramid game when choosing the courses for their dinner party meal. In the end, only one chef will beat out the others and go on to shop Flavortown for up to $20,000.”

Season 18, Episode 15

Winners vs. Judges

“Who knows Guy Fieri's grocery games the best -- the winners or the judges? Three GGG winners team up to take on a trio of Flavortown's finest judges to see who comes out on top of Guy's devious games. Before each round, teams must choose one member to compete for an advantage in the next round, and the final game decides which team wins $15,000. First, Guy has them make their best bacon dish using only ingredients that start with a single letter of the alphabet. Then, the chefs have to make an all-American dinner using unlabeled canned goods. Finally, the chefs have to make their signature dish using only one ingredient from each aisle.”
