Guy’s Grocery Games: Carnival Games – Sunday, July 2 at 8|7c

The market has been turned into a midway so that four carnival food chefs can compete for a jackpot worth up to $20,000! First, they try their luck spinning a wheel of chance for the ingredients in their fried classic. Next, chefs play Guy Fieri's arcade favorite, Spree Ball, to determine the budget for their "something on a stick" specialty. Then, the final two chefs use darts to pop the balloons that determine which aisles they can shop to create elevated carnival food.
