Guy’s Grocery Games: American Heroes – Sunday, July 16 at 8|7c

Four American heroes -- a cop, a firefighter, an EMT and an Air Force vet -- test their culinary might in a battle worth up to $20,000. First, the heroes are inspired by legendary rapper-turned-judge Rev Run to "wok this way," using a wok to shop for and cook a hearty crew meal. Next, the chefs must test their skills in Guy Fieri's classic arcade game, Spree Ball, to determine the ingredients in their hero sandwiches. Then, the final two attempt to make a leisurely day off dinner, but Guy announces "closing time!" without warning.
