Food Network continues to expand its relationship with popular presenter Guy Fieri, who is preparing to launch his sixth show with the network.
Fieri’s next outing is Guy’s Ultimate Game Night, a culinary game show featuring celebrity guests competing in food-related games and trivia, bringing some Hollywood flair to the TV chef’s ever-expanding repertoire.
The series, which starts August 31 at 9:00 p.m., will air on both Food Network and Discovery Plus, further cementing Fieri’s presence in the new Warner Bros. Discovery era both linearly and via streaming.
“If you put a game show, a late-night talk show, and a food competition show in a blender, you get ‘Guy’s Ultimate Game Night,'” Fieri said in a statement. “This is the best dinner party you’ve ever been to – filled with food, booze, outlandish games and the craziest live soundtrack around.”
At the culinary game show, first announced on the company’s Upfront, Fieri welcomes his famous friends to the Flavortown Lounge for classic party games, word puzzles and trivia with a culinary twist. Some games include topping a pizza to resemble Fieri, blind decorating a cake, and “Cooktionary,” a version of Pictionary but with food.
The celebrity contestants will compete in front of a live studio audience for a chance to win awards for their favorite charity.
Contestants include Vivica A. Fox, Ron Funches, Billy Gardell, Jay Glazer, Carson Kressley, Natasha Leggero, Tara Lipinski, Cheech Marin, Ross Matthews, Maria Menounos, Brett Michaels, Alyssa Milano, Bobby Moynihan, Francia Raisa, Kevin Smith and Johnny Weir, Kym Whitley, Carnie Wilson, Penn and Teller, plus a handful of celebrity chefs and more.
Fieri is joined by chef Antonia Lofaso – a fan favorite from Bravo’s Top Chef and shows likeChopped” and “Cutthroat Kitchen” – which support Fieri in the fun games, almost like Food Network’s Vanna White.
“Guy’s Ultimate Game Night is a culinary game show like no other,” said Jane Latman, president of home and food content and streaming at Warner Bros. Discovery. “Audience will love playing along at home, trying to guess the answers, and will also learn new food facts. We can join the party and enjoy the fun games directed by game master Guy Fieri himself.”
