Food Network star and longtime Sonoma County resident Guy Fieri adds another TV show to his repertoire of on-air endeavors, debuting Wednesday on Food Network and Discovery Plus.
“Guy’s Ultimate Game Night,” filmed in front of a live audience, features Fieri’s celebrity friends competing in food-inspired contests and board games for a chance to win prizes for their favorite charity.
“It’s the best dinner you’ve ever been to…full of food, booze, off the hook games and the funkiest live soundtrack around,” Fieri said in a Food Network press release. .
In each episode, three celebrity teams compete in five rounds of classic board games with foodie twists such as Cooktionary, in which guests must guess the food Fieri is drawing. Other games will require guests to blindly decorate cakes, make a pizza that looks like Fieri, and play a pretty literal game of Hot Potato.
Chef Antonia Lofaso (“Top Chef,” “Chopped”) co-hosts the show with Fieri, and the first episode features actor Bobby Moynihan, comedian Ron Funches and rock star Bret Michaels. Future guests include Alyssa Milano, Kevin Smith, Penn and Teller and Vivica A. Fox.
Fieri met with James Corden on Tuesday on “The Late Late Show” to talk about the show and how to eat well on camera.
The show also featured Kirby Howell-Baptiste, star of Netflix’s adaptation of “The Sandman,” and a sketches on Corden stealing Fieri’s look.
“Guys’ Ultimate Game Night” airs on Food Network and Discovery Plus Wednesdays at 9 p.m. For more information, visit foodnetwork.com.
