The Truth About Tim Hollingsworth From Guy Fieri's Tournament Of Champions Season 3

Guy Fieri's Food Network hit "Tournament of Champions" is back for a Season 3 that may just blow your expectations out of the water. Fieri's competition typically features 16 chefs, but this time, he's upped the ante by assembling 32 of them. The number of episodes this season has also been doubled to eight; each are two hours long and include four knockout battles. Perhaps the most notable change for the competitors is the cash prize, which has been increased to $100,000. The stakes, excitement, and intensity are even higher this season, as the judges don't know who's competing when tasting food made on the show, and the chefs aren't even aware who is on the judging panel (via Food Network).

One of the badass chefs competing alongside stars such as Kelsey Barnard Clark, Tiffani Faison, Antonia Lofaso, and last season's winner Maneet Chauhan is Tim Hollingsworth, who hails from Los Angeles.

Tim Hollingsworth is an accomplished chef and family man

One of the contestants on Season 3 of Guy Fieri's "Tournament of Champions" is Tim Hollingsworth. He's the owner of Otium, an American-style eatery with an eclectic, modern design, and opened the former C.J. Boyd's, a fried chicken stand. Hollingsworth is no novice when it comes to cooking and has quite the impressive resume; he worked for four years as the chef de cuisine at The French Laundry, has been honored by the James Beard Foundation, was the winner of Netflix show "The Final Table," and been a guest judge on "Top Chef Family Style" (via Instagram).

As for his personal life, the 42-year-old is married to wife Caroline, and has three children with a fourth on the way. If his Instagram tells us anything, Hollingsworth seems like an all-around pretty cool dad, taking his kids skateboarding, gardening with them, and, of course, teaching them a thing or two in the kitchen. Viewers looking to root for Hollingsworth can tune into "Tournament of Champions" when it premieres on Sunday, February 25 at 8/7 p.m. central (via Food Network).
