Guy Fieri surprises competitors Tuesday night on Food Network Star season finale

The hugely popular series Food Network Star 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 much-anticipated season finale, the heat is on between the three finalists.  Chicago-based Jeff Mauro, Las Vegas-based Vic “Vegas” Moea, and Aspen-based Susie Jimenez must prepare the best dishes of their life to present to the selection committee.  

In a final twist, only two finalists make it to the next challenge to film their signature pilot episode directed by surprise guest, Guy Fieri. After evaluations and deliberations, one finalist sees his or her photo added to the Food Network wall of fame and is named a Food Network Star.

Tune in to Food Network Star Tuesday, August 23rd at 9pm ET/10pm PT on Food Network Canada to find out who will be named a Food Network Star!  An encore presentation of this episode will air Sunday, August 28th at 3pm ET/12pm PT on Food Network Canada.
