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.

  • Honestly Giada??????

    4.5
    I too am upset with Giada's constant slutty attire. You don't see Bobby Flay running around wearing assless chaps at least not yet. What exactly are they trying to cook up on this show. Giving food porn a new meaning.

  • Disappointed in the choice of winner

    6.0
    I was very disappointed in the choice of winner. Jay was the most consistent with his food skills and his presentations and he was the only one of the three who actually made his own dish during the pilot. So, why did Eddie win? He's a former pro football player, but I thought this was a show about cooking. Silly me.
  • Losing a fan

    1.0
    I agree with the others I like the show but am disgusted with Giada's dress. If she is doing the show next season and dresses like a whore I won't be watching
  • Lost a fan for the next Food Network Star

    1.0
    So rigged, it is shameful. Jay was clearly heads above Eddie( and Dom) in his food prep and his presentations all 10 weeks, especially the final episode. Eddie capitalized on his looks & bogus football star backround. He played 1 season for the Seahawks,14 years ago & was a mediocre player. Even Dom resurrected himself to be better than Eddie and his food, also was top notch. Bobby & Giada both said winning should be about the best food and the presenter with star was NOT Eddie. We have watched since Guy won the 1st FNS but are done. Politics has triumphed over truth.moreless
  • What are we really selling here? Food or sex?

    9.0
    I have to say I agree with the other viewers who are disgusted with Giada and her choice of dress. I agree professionalism includes choice of dress. I am a teacher and how would I look dressing this way on the job? Is it me or does it seem she flirts with the contestants? Also unprofessional....



    Please do not let Giadas dress deter you from watching this show/network. It is GOOD STUFF.



    What I really got on this comment section for was to talk about the finalists and how each is deserving. But that Eddiemoreless
