Guy Fieri is a busy man! Not only is he an adored chef, but now, he's also an actor. (Did you catch him lighting Sally Field on fire in "80 for Brady"?!)  

But as in demand as he may be, he's not too busy for his beloved Food Network show, "Tournament of Champions," which is now in its fourth season. 

"I pitched this show for three years to the Food Network, saying, 'I want to give you the UFC of culinary competitions," says Guy.  

Rach's response? "Wow! What a perfect way to put it."  

And indeed, "Tournament of Champions" is a battle royale! Each season, 32 chefs compete in a "single-elimination, sudden-death culinary contest," hoping to win the belt and $100K — and it is nothing short of fierce.  

Especially the latest season. "Season 4 is OMG," says Guy. "I'm not kidding you! It's out of control." 

And the best part is, you can look forward to new famous faces every season. "The waiting list to get on the competition is huge," Guy confirms.  

You can catch "Tournament of Champions" on the Food Network, every Sunday at 8 p.m. EST.
