Four of America's hottest food bloggers go head-to-head in a culinary battle worth up to $20,000! First, the bloggers have to make something "between two buns" using a list of top-searched ingredients on the web. Next, they must make their best taco platter without any of the traditional taco ingredients. Finally, the last two bloggers must turn out a "trending dinner" featuring hot and not-so-hot ingredients chosen by Guy Fieri's dreaded Food Wheel.
The finalists must try their hand at something big, taking their inspiration from Josh Denny and his hit Food Network show, Ginormous Food. Then, it's time for the up-to-the-minute trend of live cooking while streaming on social media. Each finalist streams their take on a start-to-finish 15-minute weeknight meal while viewers cook along. Surprise guest Alex Guarnaschelli provides feedback on the finalists' performances as Giada De Laurentiis and Bobby Flay send one more finalist on their way.
