Never Underestimate the Games

When it came to shopping for Game 3, both Rob and Jean Paul weren't having it, until Guy revealed the catch, which was to shop with baskets instead of carts. What they didn't know, however, was those baskets would end up as a swap. And a last-minute Red Light Special really put a wrench in their plans.

The Benefit of Knowing Your Way Around

Handed Guy's Grocery List with four must-use ingredients, the chefs go shopping to make their panini. While everyone else seems to know their way around, Sanjivini (far left) has trouble finding one ingredient, candied orange peel, which leads to some harrowing moments in the grocery store.

Thanksgiving Sampling

To help create their innovative fall dishes, Guy had the competitors in Game 1 use at least two food samples from sampling stations set up in Flavortown Market, helmed by none other than Guy himself and judges Aarti Sequeira, G. Garvin and Catherine McCord. Supermarket sampling never looked so fun!

A Twist on the Most Important Meal of the Day

When it came to incorporating a Red Light Special of peanut butter and jelly into his Game 2 dish, Chef Francois adapted his original French idea with an Asian twist, creating a decadent breakfast that hit all the right notes with the judges. He ultimately went on to win $18,000 in the shopping spree.

Lasagna with Limitations

In an all-new game, Un-Gredient List, suggested by a Triple G fan, the chefs had to make lasagna without any of the ingredients that go into the classic recipe. Dustin won over the judges with his SoCal lasagna, which used tortillas in place of pasta sheets. He went on to win $16,000 in the Super Shopping Spree.

Hungry for Halloween?

On Guy's Grocery Games there's nothing more terrifying than being forced to shop from one aisle in a Single Aisle Showdown, especially when it's the candy aisle. In Game 2, the three chefs made the best out of a sticky situation, shopping for ingredients that could work in savory treats befitting the holiday.

Triple the Challenge, Triple the Fun?

Guy invited four of his favorite chefs from Triple D to take on Triple G. Domenica and John made it to Game 3, but they didn't realize that Guy was going to give them not one, not two, but three curveballs: They had only four minutes to shop. They had to use a Red Light Special. And Guy swapped their carts.

Great Minds Think Alike

In this all-stars episode, Guy challenged the chefs to cook with ingredients starting with the letter F. Either there aren't that many items that begin with F or the chefs all had the idea to use the same ingredients. Their dishes were great, but Alex made it all the way to the end, winning $18,000 for charity.

The ABCs of Competition

With the help of his pal Jim Belushi, Guy had Ryan and Tanya shop for ingredients that began only with the letter "C" in cooking their best dishes for the final challenge, ABC. Versatility proved to be Ryan's forte, and his dish ultimately beat his competitor's, putting him in line for the shopping spree.

Creativity Trumps Cleverness

Christian, Kim and Eddie (pictured) had to shop without using carts for their breakfast-for-dinner dishes in Game 2. Christian outsmarted the competition by using a bowl to help him gather items, but Eddie's bacon-and-egg pizza was more creative. In the end, Eddie won the grand prize with 20 seconds to spare.

Limitless Creativity Within Limitations

In Game 2, Christopher, Josh and Brandon (not pictured) were forced to shop out of the store's clearance carts in coming up with a food on a stick. Christopher managed to make the most-creative dish out of his items, turning Italian sausage into Middle Eastern keftas, which blew away the judges.

Family Pride Is On the Line

Both Mark (left) and Felix maximized the rules of the game One Ingredient Per Aisle to create their family-friendly dishes by grabbing items that worked in their favors. Mark, inspired by his Greek great-grandma, edged out his competitor with lamb, a protein that no other chef has come close to cooking so well.

Food Network Stars Take Over Flavortown

Former Food Network Star winners Jeff Mauro, Aaron McCargo Jr., Justin Warner and Melissa d'Arabian took to the aisles of Flavortown Market in this special episode. Aaron won the $20,000 maximum for his charity, Play to Win, but he was almost physically taken out by Jeff in Round 2.
