Plot Synopsis

After receiving and sorting through thousands of submissions from hopeful hosts with TV series concepts, Guy Fieri and his team of experts -- including Food Network's Alex Guarnaschelli and veteran television producer Mark Dissin -- take the most promising prospects out on the road to see who has what it takes to lead Food Network's next big culinary-travel series. The journey begins with the finalists picking a restaurant that best represents them and their show idea, where they film a pitch video to convey what their show would be about. Then, the pressure heats up as they whip up a meal in Guy's personal kitchen that embodies their idea. One prospect will find the feedback hard to chew and will be sent home. As the season progresses, the prospects are put through the paces by Guy and his team, learning that there is a lot more to hosting a food-television show than a passion for food and cooking skills. From describing each bite of food to convey the flavors, aromas and textures, to engaging the audience while eating and interviewing a wide variety of chefs, there is a lot to digest especially when your hopes and dreams are on the line. On the finale the remaining prospects each shoot a pilot employing all the skills they learned from the previous weeks. After submitting their tapes to the network, they must wait to hear the decision. Immediately following the finale, viewers learn who made the cut as they get a sneak peek of the winner's series. The prospects include: Mark Anderson (Boise, ID) together with Ryan Fey (Los Angeles, CA), Zane Caplansky (Toronto, Canada), Sharon Damante (Napa, CA) together with Sherri Williams (Crestview, FL), Christian Gill (Cincinnati, OH), Lindsay Greene (Atlanta, GA), Rashad Jones (Ocala, FL), Dariany Santana (Kenilworth, NJ), and Vincenzo Vaccaro (Astoria, NY).
On Sunday, December 10, 2017 from 9-11pm ET/PT, Food Network premiered the season finale of GUY'S BIG PROJECT, debuting back-to-back new episodes. In the night's first new episode (9pm), "The Pilot," the final prospects -- The Grill Dads (Ryan Fey & Mark Anderson), Rashad Jones, and Zane Caplansky -- shoot their pilot episodes with Guy Fieri, drawing on everything he's taught them throughout the competition. Then Guy sends the pilots to Food Network while the prospects head home to wait for the news of who has won his or her own Food Network food road show. Then, in the season ender (10pm), "What Comes Next," viewers can see the pilot from the winner of GUY'S BIG PROJECT, which demonstrates their particular passions and the skills that they learned over the course of the show from host and mentor Guy Fieri.
