Being featured on the Food Network is a huge achievement for any restaurant, and when we got the call that Guy Fieri was interested in filming a portion of the premiere of his new show, Guy’s Big Project, at our restaurant we were ecstatic! On Guy’s Big Project, Guy and his team of esteemed production partners and A-list chefs set out to search for all-star talent to lead Food Network’s next big culinary-travel series.
The six-episode journey documents every twist and turn as the hopefuls move from initial pitch and development through network review, with the ultimate end goal of earning a brand-new show on Food Network.
We were so excited to be featured in the premiere episode of Guy’s Big Project on Sunday, November 5th! The episode started out with the finalists picking a restaurant that best represented them and their show idea, where they filmed a 30-second video to convey what their show would be about. Rashad (R.J.) filmed at Fahrenheit 250, as his passion is BBQ and his show idea is called Eat, Sleep, BBQ. The pressure heated up after the 30-second video competition when contestants were asked to whip up a meal that embodied their show idea in Guy’s personal kitchen. One hopeful prospect was kicked off at the end of the episode.
