The contestants get roasted 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.

The five finalists begin Tuesday night’s action-packed episode scouring the stores of Chelsea Market in New York City searching for the best things they’ve ever eaten, to prepare for a challenge modelled after the hit series Best Thing I Ever Ate.  

Bobby Flay then directs them to describe why this dish is so wonderful and how it impacted them. Next, the finalists prepare a signature roast dish that will in turn get roasted by guest star comedians Gilbert Gottfried, Aubrey Plaza, Anthony Anderson, Louie Anderson and Judy Gold. The surprise guests reveal who preps the best slab of meat, and who’s just comic relief.

Tune in to Food Network Star Tuesday, August 9th 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, August 14th at 3pm ET/12pm PT on Food Network Canada.
