In the first challenge, the finalists have to update their family favorites with a culinary twist. They have to film an Instagram story about their process while they cook. Food blogger Molly Yeh pops in to help judge.
With the field narrowed to six finalists, the group goes Hollywood for their first challenge as they whip up dishes inspired by characters from "Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation." Fran Drescher, who voices Eunice in the movie, guest stars.
The finalists are judged on their progress so far, but they find out they must judge themselves for the first challenge. Then, they're thrown in the deep end when editor Jess Cagle splits them into two teams to judge and evaluate mentors Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis on their own dishes. Ultimately, the bottom two on each panel will compete in a sudden death cook-off, and two finalists will be sent packing.
Each competitor must create a portable version of their signature dish and go head-to-head with another competitor to convince park guests to try their dish. Then, the heat is on as Giada and Bobby decide who gets sent home in the first elimination.
