  • Done with this show

    2.5
    This past season had to have been staged. I was never so disgusted with a program outcome. Manny should have win hands done, but I could have dealt with Christian. But Jess, NO WAY. SHE IS BORING, HAS NO CAMERA CHARISMA AND HAS A ONE WAY PALATE. When she came back it became obvious she was going to be a finalist. But win. NO NO and NO. I would never watch her show. Had I not watched the "star" show and just came upon her show while channel surfing, I would change channels immediately. Your statemen about how you chose the winner was how they had performed thru the whole competition and their potential for growth. She had none of that. She got booted off for goodness sake. Manny was very consistent in his performance and HE TASTED HIS FOOD. Took Christian until the end to finally taste his food, after being told multiple times, and then he took such a large bite he couldn't talk. He won because he could talk to Giada in her whopping deal. This is not the Giada show. Manny got robbed. If you had to have 2, because it had never been done, then it should have been Manny and Christian. Did you see the look on the faces of the other contestants. That should have told you right then and there you screwed up. I am so also tired of looking at Giada's boobs and her and Bobby's little . I am done with this show. You blew it big time
  • Worst decision ever

    2.0
    Food Network Star has really lowered their standards.

    It wasn't fair that Christian had to share his win with Jess. Did they feel sorry for her? She's got the personality of a wet blanket and was eliminated for a good reason. She is far from a storyteller. All she had to say in every challenge is 'my mothers from Malaysia and my fathers from China'. Most of the time it had nothing to do with the challenge. She has no imagination, and her pilot was horrible. Who'd watch her show? Not I.

    If they were going to pick two winners, it should have been Manny up there with Christian. Personality and talent. But I'm sure Manny will get a show before that boring Jess does.

    Star Salvation needs stopped. It's not fair to those still there with more talent. I mean really, bringing back Amy? Never had any star quality to begin with.

    I dont know how you pick the winner. Jess made me so uncomfortable watching her show and Christian didnt let Antonia speak more than 5 words! Food Network you've lost a fan.
  • Giada

    1.0
    Acted like a whining little baby last night voting off 2 contestants that criticize her food , she will not be on my TV again , I have never thought her food looked good in the first place
  • Giada needs a stylist- and a lot more!

    2.0
    If Giada has a stylist, she needs a new one! She's usually showing too much cleavage no matter what show she's on. Tonight, that blue dress, while covering everything, has those flappy attachments that look ridiculous! And her hair is bad! Look in a mirror before going on camera, especially before being critical of contestants on camera performance.

    Watching June 24,2018- Giada's wardrobe still sucks- she already has a show where she shows too much, don't need another!
  • WOW really

    8.0
    Watching New Season but Giada PLEASE put away the TATAS!! Hello you are in a cooking show not porn baby . . I think your cleavage needs to be put away . . I know I am not the first to mention this so why is nothing being done?? Your OWN show with family is more modest so why can't this show get some of that ???!!!

    On another hand, I love how you and Bobby counter act each other . . Looking forward to more seasons and less BOOBS
  • Loved season 13 except Giada's Stripper show

    7.0
    Tired of Giada thinking she is on some kind of stripper show. This is supposed to be a cooking show and a family show and she chooses to dress like this?



    Other than that, love the show. Really wish Rusty would've taken it!



    I give the show a 7, once they get rid of Giada, the show will be a 10! Especially if they put Ann as a judge, lol.
  • Jason!!!

    8.0
    Jason is by far the absolute best on this show!! He needs his show whether he wins or loses!!! He has such a great personality and is so fun to watch!!
  • Mathew

    1.5
    He is the best! No Mathew? I will not watch this program anymore.
  • Food network star

    7.0
    For the network : I watch Food Network all the time, but I will NEVER watch Matthew on anything.
  • FN got it wrong!

    5.0
    Matthew is the best! His videos and tips are excellent! He is engaging and informative. Keep it up Matthew!
  • Don't like any of the finalist

    2.0
    I don't care which one wins because I wouldn't watch any of their shows. I'm sorry but I disagree with the people who do not like Matthew. He tried very hard to improve this season and I think he did change. There is no way that Rusty should have been chosen over Matthew to go to the final 3.
  • Matthew

    6.0
    I really can't stand Matt and his smacking lips and his arrogance. He needs to go. I would not watch his show or the show he does a guess spot on. Instant channel change.
  • Rooting for Jason

    7.0
    Jason is not only a great cook, but has personality plus! I'd watch any show he's on. As far as Matthew is concerned, I'd turn him off immediately. He thinks he's the greatest. I've got news for him. He's not! I agree with the rest of the reviews about Gisda's boobs. Too much cleavage.
  • Smug Matthew and Giada's boobs - ENOUGH with all 3!

    4.0
    I literally cannot stand to watch that smug ass, arrogant Matthew anymore, so I was very glad to see people on this post agree.

    As for Giada... c'mon, is it really necessary to have every piece of clothing to be so freaking low that 80% of your boobs are showing? Is she going clubbing after every taping? Does she think she is competition with the Kardashians? Is she trying to dual use her Tinder profile outfits on this show?

    Women have a hard enough time being taken seriously by some people in this industry and these outfits are not helping the cause.
  • Will Someone please start a new cooking network that actually involves cooking?

    1.0
    I totally agree with Matt Really. I cannot stand Matt and would absolutely NEVER watch a show with him as host. this is not to mention the fact that he cannot cook. He is a totally slimy,arrogant person. However, I imagine Giada is happy now that there are no women in the finals who might be competion for her and her always on display boobs.
  • MATT REALLY

    4.0
    I CAN HARDLY STAND TO WATCH THE SHOW BECAUSE OF THAT SMIRKING PUNK MATT. I WOULD NEVER WATCH A SHOW WITH HIM HOSTING. HE IS THE RUDEST SMARTA** SOMEONE NEEDS TO TAKE HIM DOWN. I AM SO SURPRISED FOOD NETWORK HAS NOT TALKED TO HIM ABOUT HOW HE TREATS AND TALKS TO THE OTHERS ON THE SHOW. HE IS SHOWING KIDS IT'S OK TO CUT ANYONE WHO MIGHT OUT DO HIM HE MAKES ME SICK. THE OTHER IS GIADA'S BOOBS, ENOUGH OF THAT GOOD FOR HER SHE HAS A GOOD SURGEON BUT WE DON'T WANT TO SEE THEM ANYMORE. BOBBY IS SO DRY HE IS SO INTO HIMSELF. YOU JUST NEED NEW HOSTS FOR NEXT SEASON.
  • Disgusting!

    4.0
    This is supposed to be a family show? It's all about Giada's boobs. I don't want my family or guests watching this! Disgusting!
  • Giada's Dress

    6.0
    Giada seems very proud of her breasts. This show however is not about her cleavage. I'm very disappointed with the Food Network for allowing her to dress in such a provocative manner.
  • Ginormous food - gross

    7.5
    Making ginormous food is disgusting! The wastefulness of throwing away the 7/8 part of the food that can't be eaten is wasteful and shameful! With the push Food Network has done to educate people about the amount of food waste for not-pretty food that the network does around thanksgiving (At minimum) should be a basic conflict of interest with this concept.

    This is so in conflict with the No Kid Hungry initiative too! Stick to the message that reflects your corporate ethics!
  • Bad taste

    1.0
    Giada's dress is cut way too low. This is a family show ! They have desciplined other contestants for "exposure", she needs to change clothes. I don't want my boys to watch, she looks cheap!
  • What A Shame

    5.0
    I don't understand how that woman moved on when her steak was raw. There was nothing wrong with with the shrimp and grits. I don't get it.
  • NEED NEW JUDGES

    1.0
    I used to LOVE the Next Food Network Star, but the judges have such blah personalities that they lose my interest. Bobby is so popular, and while I understand he's a great cook, he's severely lacking in charisma. Giada is all teeth and bosoms, which she loves to show. Even if you don't replace Booby, PLEASE replace Giada. She doesn't have the personality to hold attention - perhaps that's why she dresses like she does, which is embarrassing. I don't understand why the network executives allow such low-cut dresses on a family show. She may be a good cook - I don't know since her shows never hold my interest - but she's not authorative enough and she's not believable as an expert.



    Please bring someone else on to judge. Perhaps that woman with the blond spiked hair who used to help restaurants select their next chef? She's everything Giada is not: authorative, with personality. She's believable, AND holds my attention.
  • Narcistic judges

    3.0
    While many people love the cooking competions I am constantly disappointed with the judges who seem more interested in telling the world how smart they are than properly evaluating the competition. They can look at a wonderful effort and make a snide comment about it being improved if it had some obscure seasoning. It would be fun to see these judges gathered in competition and judged harshly. It would even be more fun to have a surprise comedy routine with comedians as judges who would make comments such as "I can't eat this crap or I would rather go to McDonald's ". It would make me happy to see these judges learn a little humility.
  • Where's the option to delete my post

    7.0
    You won't let me delete it, you only let me edit it. So therefore I will edit it to say that I want it to be deleted.
  • Contestants attitude

    4.0
    I love food channel generally , i watched food network star last year too.

    Damiano should've won the previous season.



    Bobby is really a professional judge but Giada!!! Chill n stop eyeballing bobby so obvious how much she likes him but u don't have to show it that much



    That contestant mama suzan with her stack up attitude,chill u haven't won yet!! She irritates me



    Aside from that good luck for the rest

  • OFF TO A GOOD START! BUT PLEASE - CONTESTANTS - QUIT SAYING 'HI GUYS!"

    4.0
    I really enjoy this show and watching them meeting the challenges presented as they vie for their own show. Only one thing I wish they would stop. Quit saying "HI GUYS! when they start their video presentations. I AM NOT A GUY! Just a "Welcome" or "Hi"..... be original.
  • I disagree

    1.5
    The show has not been interesting since the whole format has been changed. Had the three groups which was all wrong. Then just those two judging. What happened to the way it used to be when it first came on????? Loved it. Now boring. And damio or whatever his name is aint no better than the others. Lots of folk is used to italion food anyway, is that why everyone else who is different is not wanted? Same crap on foodntwork. No ethnicity, or different people or shows at all. same stuff. Glad something (different is there).
  • Please Replace Giada

    1.0
    Giada is not professional at all. She dresses inappropriately as a judge. She tries to make it about her appearance instead of the contestants who, wonders of wonders, all dress appropriately for the show. I'm assuming the reason she chooses to dress provocatively is she is either immature or not very bright. She doesn't understand dressing for success. She sets woman back by dressing too sexy for the show. Keep your fake boob covered when on TV. Save it for an adult atmosphere. Would it be okay for Bobby Flay to dress in a muscle man shirt?? Please replace her with a professional chef.
  • Wrong choice for the winner

    Damiano. That is who the viewers want to watch.
