Guy's Grocery Games (often nicknamed Triple G) is an American reality-based cooking television game show hosted by Guy Fieri on Food Network. Each episode features four chefs competing in a three-round elimination contest, cooking food with ingredients found in a supermarket grocery store (“Flavortown Market”) as Fieri poses unusual challenges to them. The winning chef can collect up to $20,000 in a shopping spree bonus round. The show often features chefs from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, another show hosted by Guy Fieri. The show Dessert Games was a short-lived spin-off.

In each round, Fieri assigns a dish and issues one or more challenges/games that the chefs must fulfill. The chefs usually have 30 minutes to shop for ingredients from the market, prepare, and plate their dishes, unless one of Fieri's challenges shortens their time. The chefs must cook their dishes and complete four platings, one for each member of a three-judge panel and a fourth “beauty plate,” before time runs out. At the end of each round, the judges taste and evaluate the dishes and select one chef to be “checked out” ‒ eliminated from the game with no winnings. On occasion, the chefs compete through only two rounds instead of the usual three and/or face two eliminations at the end of a single round. The last remaining chef advances to the bonus round, Guy's Shopping Spree, for a chance to win up to $20,000 in two minutes. Two different formats have been employed: Seasons 1-11: The chef must retrieve one named item from each of the market's 10 aisles, receiving $2,000 for each one placed in the shopping cart. Season 12 to Present: Fieri asks five questions, each of which can be answered with a particular item, and the chef receives $4,000 for each one placed in the cart. On occasion, such as during tournaments or specially themed episodes, Guy's Shopping Spree is not played and Fieri awards the full $20,000 to the winner.
