    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Bob: Talk about the devil you know. Which is worse, bad food or no food?

      • Jess Cagle: (about Howie's gnocchi) Reminds me of my childhood, when I used to eat Lemon Drops and glue.

      • Justin D.: Shopping with Penny and Alicia is like shopping with a cougar and a lion, and they're both fighting over the same piece of meat. It's gonna turn into a wrestling match, and not even like a sexy one that I'd wanna watch.

    • NOTES (6)

      • Special Thanks: Buick, Courtesy: The Hollywood Sign & Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hollywood Chamber of Commerce

      • Also Featured: Jess Cagle – Managing Editor, Entertainment Weekly (Guest Diner)

      • Graphics had difficulty tonight with the culinary terms. It misspelled guanciale (bacon made from hogs jowls) as guanchile on Alicia's 1st dish, and Jeff's adobo chipotle dressing was spelled "adobe."

      • This episode marks the beginning broadcast of the show using the altered name: Food Network Star.

      • This season's prizes have been slightly changed. Gone is the spot at the annual New York City Wine & Food Festival put on by the Food Network. In its place is a book tour promoting the new book, Food Network Star: the Official Insider's Guide to America's hottest food show.

      • This season premiere was "super-sized" at two hours. It ran from 9-11 pm E/P (8-10 CT).

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • (Discussing Howie, a DJ, after his camera challenge.)
        Bob: This may be a case where video will kill the radio star.
        Bob references the 1979 song "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the Buggles.
