Welcome and Good Luck

365体育竞猜As chefs make their way into the arena, they're greeted by Guy with a hearty welcome.

Bracket Reveal

All 16 chefs are on hand as Guy reveals each one's seed — and Round 1 matchup.

It's Anybody's Game

As has been the case in countless basketball tourneys, competition battles rarely go as planned, so it's best to expect the unexpected here too.

Focus and Speed

365体育竞猜Every battle will be a race against the clock, which means the chefs will be forced to think on their feet and execute their plan quickly. Chef Eric Greenspan is wasting no time in his prep work.

Take Your Pick

365体育竞猜Though there's not a complete supermarket setup here like there is on Guy's Grocery Games, the Tournament of Champions pantry is stocked with hundreds of ingredients, products and tools to help every contestant make the dish they want.

Ready, Set, Selfie

The mood on set is indeed intense, but don't be fooled. There's still plenty of time for fun — Guy makes sure of that.

Calculated Risks

To impress the esteemed roster of judges who will be tasting their food, chefs must balance creativity and reality as they attempt to push the limits in the kitchen.

Commentator Check-In

Guy asked two of his pals, Justin Warner and Simon Majumdar, to help manage the action in the arena. So as the competition unfolds, Justin and Simon will each shadow one chef and carefully note their ingredient choices and prep processes.

Remember the Basics

You've surely heard Chef Amanda Freitag say this on Chopped: Well-seasoned food is absolutely key. Here she's working hard on that lesson herself as she adds salt to one component of her dish.

Precious Seconds

Chefs don't have sous chefs in this competition, so they're solely responsible for every element of their dish.
