Big Apple Dreams

After a whirlwind 10 weeks in Los Angeles, the finalists arrive in New York City for a game-changing finale. The top-three hopefuls wait in anticipation as the group looks back on the season and Bobby and Giada prepare to announce Food Network's newest Star.

Behind-the-Scenes Antics

While looking back at previously unseen moments from the competition, both the competitors and mentors couldn't help but chuckle at their (hilarious) missteps and flubs.

Friendly Competition

Part momentous finale and part reunion, the finalists enjoyed reminiscing on memorable moments and challenges from the past 10 weeks.

Early Elimination

In an effort to narrow the field even further, Bobby and Giada announced that Cory would not be the next Food Network Star. Though surely disappointed, Cory admitted being proud of what he accomplished here.

Honest Reflections

For Rusty and Jason, the finale offered an opportunity to imagine how their lives would be different should they become a Star. Both noted the enormity of the title in moments of emotional consideration.
