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 10 returns with 12 new finalists, unique and intense challenges, plus guest judges – both celebrities, and Food Network stars. This season starts in Los Angeles, travels to Las Vegas, and ends in New York - Food Network's hometown. On the way, the finalists will have to prove themselves in a variety of venues, including Hollywood premieres, 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 enthrall fans and newbies alike. Join the fun as the brightest stars from the network and select special guest stars coach these hopefuls toward their dream.

Alton Brown, Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis return as mentors, and are also part of the committee. The viewer-voted winner continues, and Star Salvation returns for season two 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.

  • stopped after 2 seasons

    4.5
    The show is great and exciting but the decision making by the judges really frustrate me. Its possible that theres more to their reasons but if i dont see it, it doesnt matter. netflix only has seasons 9 and 10 so i only watched those two. There were a few bad judgement calls in Season 9 and I feel like they picked the wrong winner but thats fine. Season 10 during the youtube THE PAYDAY MONSTER VIDEO WAS WAAYYY MORE AWESOME! I can barely remember the other 2. Everyone that i know that watched it was appalled by the decision. I can still remember how funny and ridiculous it was. The Reese one was about to put me to sleep and even though I love Emma, she wasnt that memorable.



    I personally think Aryan shouldve been kicked off for her lack of cooking skills earlier, but in the commercial she was awesome. I heard every word and she was hilarious.

    Also the cutthroat kitchen with Lenny, how bad could that piece of bread be? Also it was a barely significant part of his dish. if Bobby could swallow Kenny's weird contraption than he can swallow a piece of dry or tasteless bread. Atleast spit for better reasons.



    I love Giada and Alton but it makes me too angry to see the wrong contestants get booted. I rather watch Iron chef or Hells kitchen, Gordon Ramsey makes better decisions.moreless

  • LENNY REALLY? WHAT HAPPENED

    1.0
    I WOULD NEVER WATCH HIM HE IS WEIRD I AGREE. He is obnoxious and fake. He is NOT a cowboy that I would find attractive. You lost another viewer foodnetwork
  • snobby judges

    2.0
    The judges suck, they all act like snobs. What happened to them? They used to be down to earth.
  • Predictable

    2.0
    Since the "viewers" became the deciding factor, the show is no longer about the culinary skills of the contestants. It's a popularity contest. Lenny is a nice enough guy, but the "routine" will get old pretty quick.



    I guess this will be the last "Star" series I will waste my time watching.
