Ninja Meets Guy Fieri in New Grocery Games Episode For Some Reason
As Guy Fieri meets up with Ninja on a new episode of Grocery Games. Ninja is a massively successful video game streamer who recently made the jump from Twitch to Mixer. Guy Fieri, who perhaps needs no introduction, is a personality in the food world with several shows, including Guy’s Grocery Games and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. The two are titans in their respective businesses.
Guy’s Grocery Games (or Triple G, which is not to be confused with Triple D for Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives) is a reality cooking game show, which in and of itself is a hodgepodge of genres that drives Food Network viewers bananas. Four chefs are given a challenge and 30 minutes to both shop in the Flavertown Market grocery store and prepare meals. The setup is absurd, the challenge is extreme, and the reality TV editing is packed in as tight as fans of the genre have come to love. So, how in the world does Ninja fit in?
This Wednesday, November 6th, 2019, Ninja will guest star in an episode of Guy’s Grocery Games as a security guard sent to catch cheating chefs. The quick episode introduction shared on Twitter by Justin Warner below showcases a bit of what’s in store for Guy and Ninja’s team-up, which is not the first time Ninja’s teamed up with someone from another sphere of entertainment. From Fortnite references to Ninja chasing thieves down on a segway, the episode looks terrifically absurd. Thanks to the huge demographic span that the two personalities cover, this might be one of the most-watched episodes of Guy’s Grocery Games, too.
Guy Fieri has been in the entertainment business for nearly 15 years. He got his start as a contestant on a Food Network game show called The Next Food Network Star, a show that turned winners into hosts after a set of competitions. Ninja rose to fame just as meteorically, starting as a professional gamer on the Halo circuit in 2009 before really blowing up on Twitch. It was only recently announced that Ninja’s about to get his own graphic novel series. The two competed their way to the top, and they now both ironically claim corners of the internet as their own, though in very different ways.
Guy Fieri’s popularity seems nearly timeless. And, while Ninja’s drawn some criticism with his career moves, there’s no denying that he also commands a colossal following. The streamer pops up everywhere today, and his new place as a Food Network guest star just feels like one appearance in a line of many to come.
You can catch the Guy’s Grocery Games episode that features Ninja on November 6th, 2019, at 9pm ET.
