GUY FIERI PUTS EIGHT CELEBRITY SUPERSTAR CHEFS TO THE TEST IN THE FLAVORTOWN MARKET ON "GUY'S GROCERY GAMES: SUPERSTARS"

Don't Miss the Five-Week Tournament Premiering Sunday, August 20th at 8pm ET/PT

NEW YORK - August 1, 2017- You have followed their careers, read their cookbooks, and watched them on TV, and beginning on Sunday, August 20th at 8pm ET/PT, you will watch these celebrity chefs compete against each other in a no-holds-barred tournament on Guy's Grocery Games: Superstars. In this thrilling five-week tournament, Guy 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, and 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.

Fans can head to FoodNetwork.com/GroceryGames to relive the top moments of the tournament, test their supermarket trivia smarts, and collect shopping and cooking tips from the judges. Plus, they can also join the conversation using #GroceryGames.

Episodes include:

Premiering Sunday, August 20th at 8pm- TOURNAMENT PREMIERE! "Superstars Tournament Part 1" First, the Superstars confront every shopper's mortal enemy, the Express Lane! But since they're the best, Guy Fieri gives them an extreme limitation, four ingredients or less, to make their 'Best Italian Dish.' The bottom two chefs must go head-to-head in the single-elimination Redemption Round, making a 'Seafood Feast' using one ingredient from each and every aisle. In the end, one chef exits while the others stay alive in this five-part tournament that will earn one chef big money for charity! Judges: Troy Johnson, Carl Ruiz, Aarti Sequeira

Premiering Sunday, August 27th at 8pm "Superstars Tournament Part 2" This week's theme is: Budget Battle Royale! The seven remaining celebrity chefs are given $36.01 each to buy all their groceries for the night. Should they spend it all on the initial 'Taco Combo' challenge, or reserve some money in case they must cook again in the Redemption Round? The three bottom chefs are forced to duke it out for survival by making a 'Decadent Dessert' with whatever money they have left. In the end, one chef goes home and six move one step closer to winning $40,000 for charity. Judges: Eric Greenspan, Troy Johnson, Aarti Sequeira

Premiering Sunday, September 3rd at 8pm "Superstars Tournament Part 3" The remaining six chefs are all given the same grocery list. But in a surprising twist, they must compete in 3 one-on-one battles to see which opponent makes the best breakfast, lunch or dinner. The winners of these match-ups are safe until next week's competition. But the three that get edged out, head into the Redemption Round where they must flip the ingredients in tiramisu into an 'Elegant Entrée.' Which 2 will get another shot at becoming a champion for charity and rejoin their peers for the semi-finals of the tournament? Judges: Troy Johnson, Aaron May, Aarti Sequeira

Premiering Sunday, September 10th at 8pm "Superstars Tournament Part 4" It's the semi-finals and Guy Fieri has devised two shocking shopping cart games for the remaining five celebrity chefs. First, they must search the store to discover where he has hidden their personal carts, only to find that they must make their best 'Burger and Fries' featuring the bizarre ingredient Guy dropped in each one. The winner gets an automatic pass to the finale, while the bottom four must fight for redemption by making their 'Cheesiest Dish.' But before they can cook, Guy hits them with a totally new twist - a 4-way cart swap! Judges: Troy Johnson, Carl Ruiz, Aarti Sequeira

Premiering Sunday, September 17th at 8pm - TOURNAMENT FINALE! "Superstars Tournament Part 5" The final four celebrity chefs are all vying to become the champion. But first, they must face Guy Fieri's most diabolical challenge yet: The Double Wheel O' Games. That's right, two wheels-of-chance featuring Guy's toughest games. That means they must play not one, but two extreme grocery games in each round as they attempt to prepare their 'Best Fried Dish' and a 'High End Dish.' The final two culinary giants must make their 'Signature Dish' during two more treacherous games. Who will be the Superstar champion and win $40,000 for their charity? Judges: Troy Johnson, Aarti Sequeira, Jet Tila
