Food Network Star is the number one series on Food Network and its back for a seventh season. Watch Sunday, June 5th as 15 hopeful chefs compete for the ultimate prize – their own show on Food Network. Keep reading to find out more about the upcoming season.
Something new this season, Giada de Laurentiis will be joining fellow Food Network star, Bobby Flay as a permanent judge on the show. Giada, Bobby and top executives at the network will coach and critique the contestants weekly through various food challenges. After the challenge, the contestants will face the judges’ panel and one person will be eliminated each week.
What exactly are the judges looking for? As we know from previous seasons, you need more than just strong cooking chops to win this dream job. Judges are looking for someone who can thrive under pressure, engage an audience, and has that unique star quality.
The seventh season is filled with great food challenges including; inventing food trucks, throwing an impromptu dinner party for Wolfgang Puck and even visiting the set of Cougar Town and cooking for Courtney Cox! The judges will determine the finalists and then the winner will be announced on the season finale, August 14th.
Who will be eliminated first? Watch on Sunday as 15 chefs from all over the country come to LA to compete for their chance at cooking stardom.
