Guy Fieri and Bill Murray are set to go head-to-head in the virtual nacho cook-off, “Nacho Average Showdown.” The event will raise funds for the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund (RERF) and will feature Terry Crews and Shaquille O’Neal as the judges.

Hosted by Food Network‘s Carla Hall, “Nacho Average Showdown” is presented by Tostitos and promises to include “off-the-wall humor” and friendly quips between the two competitors. The pair will also be joined by their sons, Hunter Fieri and Chef and restaurateur Homer Murray, to show them how to make the perfect nachos. Each contender will need to create his signature nachos for Crews and Shaq, and the rightful winner will be crowned

“My entire career has been in the restaurant business,” Fieri, who also founded the RERF, said in a statement. “From bussing tables to flambe captain to dishwasher to chef… I have done it all. I’ve also spent the better part of the last 15 years traveling this great country meeting other folks who’ve dedicated their lives to this business, and let me tell you something, they are the hardest working, most real deal workers you’ve ever met… the heartbeats of their communities. But they need our help and with the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund, we can serve up some support when these restaurant employees need it most… right now.”

The RERF provides restaurant workers with $500 USD grants and 100 percent of all donations will go directly to the charity. More than 50 companies have helped the organization raise over $22 million USD, and “Nacho Average Showdown” will help the industry’s workforce get back on their feet during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The “Nacho Average Showdown” kicks off May 15, 5 p.m. EDT on the Food Network Facebook Page.

Elsewhere in food, Eleven Madison Park may not reopen after the coronavirus pandemic.
