The Next Food Network Star

Show Summary

Have you ever thought you could host your own show? Food Network tests that belief in this competition that focuses on both cooking proficiency and camera skills.

Season 11 begins with 12 new finalists, unique and intense challenges, plus guest judges culled from Food Network and Top Chef, and scattered press and celebrities. This season starts in Los Angeles and ends in Food Network's hometown of New York City. On the way, the finalists will have to prove themselves in a variety of venues — food festivals, interactive media, television appearances, and various party types. Through it all the finalists must always demonstrate the overarching theme of this competition: excellence in the kitchen, ability to share their points of view, and an on-camera presence that will attract fans and newbies alike. Join the fun as these hopefuls compete for their dream.

Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis return as mentors, and are also part of the Selection Committee. The viewer-voted winner continues, and Star Salvation returns for season three giving one eliminated finalist the chance to return for the finale. The winner is awarded his or her own Food Network show, a headlining spot at the New York City Wine & Food Festival, and a feature in Food Network Magazine. Produced by LEG/Triage Entertainment.

    Giada's wardrobe is much too revealing for this type of programming - cleavage and crop tops?

    It bugs me when he puts his hair back behinds his ear then he touches his food. GROSS!! He either needs to cut his hair or wear a ball cap
  • You're not a young woman any more

    Giada Dear, your short skirts and vastly exposed chest are not flattering at all. It's obvious that you're beginning to age, as we all must sooner or later. It was almost painful to watch you on last night's episode. You looked like a talented, intelligent culinary expert compromising her dignity.
  • Hardly Any Cooking Any More

    1.0
    What has been happening to the Network that was about cooking? Guy Fieri: Junk Food is now on 8 times a day. He is not cooking but showing awful food. Ina and Bobby F. may be the only cooks left that actually cook. Why not move to some of the vegan shakes? What are they? What is in them? and Why are they good for you? Simply stuff too: How to cook a good steak. I don't like the shows that make fun of the chefs or humiliate them with stupid games. Used to always tune in, still do, but leave unsatisfied.moreless
