Guy Fieri takes competitors to the drive-in Tuesday night on Food Network Star

The hugely popular series Food Network Star has returned to Food Network Canada with the most star-studded season yet. Hosted by Bobby Flay and Giada DeLaurentiis, and aided by a selection committee including Food Network executives Bob Tuschman and Susie Fogelson, Food Network Star follows 15 finalists as they compete in a series of food-related challenges for the chance to host their own show on Food Network.

In Tuesday night’s 90-minute mid-season episode, the ten remaining finalists must prove they can entertain just as well as they can cook.  Guest Host Guy Fieri (Diners, Drive-ins and Dives) challenges each finalist to take part in a mock taping of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives at Mel’s Drive-In in Hollywood, which takes some finalists out of their kitchen comfort zone.  

Then, it’s all fireworks as the competitors put their own spin on American classics using beer as a special ingredient for the Fourth of July All-American Food Festival.  The twist?  Finalists must take the stage and serve as the live entertainment for the day, demonstrating their entrée for the audience before overseeing their individual stations.

Tune in to Food Network Star Tuesday, July 12th at 9pm ET/10pm PT on Food Network Canada to find out who has the Star appeal!  An encore presentation of this episode will air Sunday, July 17th at 3pm ET/12pm PT on Food Network Canada.
