NEW YORK - July 20, 2015 - Guy Fieri hosts some of the biggest stars from Food Network and Cooking Channel in special summertime stunt, Guy's Grocery Games All-Stars, premiering Sunday, August 23rd at 8pm ET/PT on Food Network. Each of the five episodes features four culinary all-stars competing in a number of challenges as they navigate their way through the aisles of a grocery store with curveballs from games such as the Fieri Food Pyramid and the feared Food Wheel. Whether it is preparing an upscale dinner using frozen and canned foods, making a noodle dish from the clearance carts or creating a dinner using ingredients from the produce aisle only, each All-Star chef has to shop, prepare, and plate three different dishes using only what they can grab from the grocery store aisles. One-by-one the losing All-Stars check out, determined by a rotating panel of judges that includes Richard Blais, Melissa d'Arabian, Duskie Estes, G. Garvin, Troy Johnson, Beau MacMillan, Brian Malarkey, Catherine McCord and Aarti Sequeira. In the fifth and final episode, each All-Star is teamed up with a professional athlete, giving them even more of a sporting chance to be the victor and go on a shopping spree for a cash prize for their charity!
