Chopped Grill Masters and Chopped Teen Tournament are back for second seasons on Food Network. First off starting July 14 at 10|9c, Tuesday nights are getting fired up with Chopped Grill Masters. There's a $50,000 grand prize on the line as 16 chefs/grilling pros head out of the kitchen to compete in the great outdoors, working with mystery baskets that put their grilling and barbecue skills to the test. Judges Scott Conant, Alex Guarnaschelli and Chris Santos, with special guest judges Amy Mills and Tim Love, will decide the fate of each competitor in the five-part tournament. Once the dust clears, there will be only one Grill Masters Chopped Champion.

And in August the teens are back on Tuesdays, starting on Aug. 25 at 10|9c, for a second season of the five-part teen tournament. The Chopped kitchen heats up with boundless energy, ambition and budding talent. The 16 culinary wunderkinds aim to please with perfect plates for judges Maneet Chauhan, Scott Conant, Amanda Freitag, Alex Guarnaschelli and Chris Santos. In the end one teen will walk away the Chopped Teen Grand Champion and with a grand prize of $25,000 for presenting dishes that hit square on taste, presentation and creativity.
