Cinematic Debut!

The finalists shoot 30-second screen tests to explain what they are all about, which are then screened at a VIP event in Los Angeles in front of a Hollywood crowd. Mentors Giada De Laurentiis and Bobby Flay surprise the finalists when an eliminated contestant from a previous season also joins the competition, then Valerie Bertinelli and Tyler Florence help decide who will be the first to be sent home.
