Guy Fieri welcomes back former Triple G competitors for a chance to redeem themselves and prove their culinary skills on Guy's Grocery Games Redemption Tournament, premiering Sunday, April 3 at 8|7c. Returning contestants will battle it out in some of the toughest games Guy has ever thrown down, for a chance at up to $20,000 in the shopping spree, along with a coveted spot in the tournament's finale. The one chef who can survive all the challenges will be crowned the Redemption Tournament Champion and earn the opportunity to win up to an additional $20,000 with a second shopping spree!

Part 1 — Sunday, April 3 at 8|7c

Four previously eliminated chefs are back for another shot at victory as the Redemption Tournament kicks off. First, the chefs must turn German chocolate cake ingredients into a delicious dinner. Then, they must make something cheesy using only items whose prices begin with the number 3. In the final round, the chefs prepare dishes inspired by their family flavors and featuring weird ingredients from the dreaded Food Pyramid. The chef who emerges victorious gets a shot at winning $20,000 and a spot in the finale.

Judges: Richard Blais, Melissa d'Arabian, Troy Johnson

Part 2 — Sunday, April 10 at 8|7c

Four chefs who left Flavortown early in their first appearance are staging a comeback! First, the chefs have to make an Italian feast with nine items or fewer. Next, it's substitution time as the chefs make Philly cheesesteaks without hoagie rolls, beef, bell peppers or provolone. Finally, the chefs try their luck at bowling in hopes of making a hometown favorite that will win them up to $20,000 and a spot in the finale.

Judges: Richard Blais, Brandi Milloy, Damaris Phillips

Four chefs return to Triple G for redemption in this special tournament. First, a roll of the dice determines the chefs must make a chicken dinner featuring tofu and radishes with just a few minutes to shop. Next, the chefs must create a tasty soup and sandwich on a budget of only $11. Finally, the chefs have to add French onion dip and jackfruit to a classic surf-and-turf dish. The winner can nab up to $20,000 and earn a spot in the finale.

Part 4 — Sunday, April 24 at 8|7c

Four chefs who have been defeated in the Flavortown Market before are back for redemption. First, the chefs must create a fried feast using grocery bags that keep getting smaller. Next, worlds collide as the chefs dish out their best beef dinner combining the flavors of Italy and Korea. Finally, the chefs present a dish from the heart that incorporates a twisted two-for-one special. The winner receives a big shopping spree and the last spot in the finale.

Judges: Troy Johnson, Beau MacMillan, Damaris Phillips

Finale — Sunday, May 1 at 8|7c

The final four chefs vie for the ultimate comeback, starting with a redemption dinner using the same ingredients that caused their downfall the first time. Next, the chefs play a Triple G arcade favorite to win money to pay for their grilled picnic. Finally, the chefs spin the Food Wheel to determine the high-priced and low-priced ingredients they must incorporate into a signature dish. Whoever is crowned champion has a chance to double his or her winnings with a second shopping spree.
