10 talented finalists competed for a chance to host a Food Network program. Intense trials whittled the group to two, whose fate was decided by America's viewers. Being a Food Network star is tougher than it looks.


Episode Info

Next: 11x06 -- Improv (Jul/12/2015)


In the Mentor Challenge, the Finalists are tasked with creating and presenting an enticing pizza with kicked-up flavors for Giada De Laurentiis, Bobby Flay, and guest judges Duff Goldman and Darin Harris, CEO of CiCi's Pizza. In the Star Challenge, Bobby and guest David Alan Grier randomly assign each Finalist several criteria for their dishes, which they'll present in a demo for a crowd filled with food and comedy fans. Susie Fogelson and Bob Tuschman assist Giada and Bobby in eliminating the least successful Finalist.



Prev: 11x05 -- The Perfect Match (Jul/05/2015)


In the Mentor Challenge, the Finalists' favorite ingredients are swapped with that of another Finalist for a dish they prepare for Giada De Laurentiis and Bobby Flay. Then, they arrive at Patina Restaurant in downtown Los Angeles where they are paired up to collaborate on a dish that blends their culinary styles, presenting that dish to first-time daters from Match. Anne Burrell and Joachim Splichal, Master Chef of Patina Group, join Giada and Bobby at the judging table.

I just barely got into this show a couple of episodes ago and I'm hooked! I've never been interested by commercials, but one day nothing was on and it wasn't half bad. Then the more I got watching, the more I liked it! Read more
