This time around, the competition is thick as an impressive lineup of chefs will dominate the kitchen.

They will all battle it out to not only earn the iconic Tournament of Champions belt, but also a $100,000 cash prize.

"Every chef must face off against the most dreaded opponent of all — the randomizer, the dish-generating monster that keeps getting more unpredictable," Fieri says.

And this season, the Food Network star is upping the fierce nature of the randomizer by including wildcards that get progressively more difficult throughout each round, per a release.

The trailer features some familiar faces, including Alex Guarnaschelli, who sets the tempo for the challenges in the trailer.

"The hair on the back of my head is standing up," she says in the clip.

Along with Guarnaschelli, judges include Michelle Bernstein, Scott Conant, Cat Cora, Rocco DiSpirito, Lorena Garcia, Nancy Silverton, Daniela Soto-Innes, Ming Tsai, Jonathan Waxman, Andrew Zimmern and "one of the most highly regarded chefs to be revealed in the finale," per a release.

Simon Majumdar and Justin Warner are floor reporters, who will provide expert commentary, while Fieri's own son, Hunter, will document all the backstage drama, including a look at the chefs' reactions as they watch culinary greats blindly judge their dishes.

Brooke Williamson took home the winning title in season 1, Maneet Chauhan in season 2, and Faison in season 3.

Tournament of Champions season 4 premieres Sunday, Feb. 19 at 8 p.m. ET/ PT on Food Network and discovery+.
